The US Air Force has updated its dress code policy to outline a clear approval process for Sikhs and Muslims who want to serve while wearing their articles of faith.
Under the new guidelines, which were finalized last week, Sikhs and Muslims can seek a religious accommodation to wear turbans, beards, unshorn hair and hijabs, and expect to be approved as long as their appearance is “neat and conservative,” except under extremely limited circumstances. Previously, religious accommodations were granted on a case-by-case basis, but the approval process could be lengthy. (📸:Airman 1st class Briana Cespedes/US Air Force)
