During this week of meetings with various Congressional offices and staff in DC, one of the questions we heard over and over again was “Won’t allowing their turbans and beards affect the performance of these men?” Our answer was simple: absolutely not. How could we be so sure? Not only because of the thousands of Sikhs serving with armies overseas, but because of the dozens who have already served the United States here at home.
Watch this video for a brief look at the legacy of Sikh service in the US military. These brave men have paved the way and given us the evidence to support the battle that Captains Kalsi and Rattan are waging for the Sikh American community today.
May God Bless them all!
