US Army To Allow Turbans, Beards And Dreadlocks

Yeah, that’s my 18-year-old, short-haired, naked-faced Navy boot camp grad photo from 1943. I retouched it to comply with today’s new policy of allowing more liberal hair and head coverings.

Actually, it was Army Secretary Eric Fanning, in his final days on the job, who recently issued a directive allowing dress code easing because of religious reasons. Now, Army guys can march around wearing beards, long hair, burkas, turbans and other schmattas. Hey, Corporal Klinger from “Mash”! You had it right all those years ago!
