  • Air Force Will Allow Muslim Dress

    The United States Air Force updated its official dress code policy this month, in observance of religious practices, to allow military personnel to wear turbans or hijabs as a part of the uniform.

    The Air Force released an update to the “Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel” code on Feb. 7, now permitting airmen to request a waiver to wear religious apparel while in uniform as long as they are “neat and conservative.”

    In addition to religious apparel, members also can request permission to have unshorn beards and unshorn hair. If the length of the beard exceeds 2 inches, it must be “rolled an or tied” to meet the new standards.

    The code has been updated to include hijabs, beards, turban or under-turban/patka, unshorn beards, unshorn hair, and indoor/outdoor head coverings.

    The Air Force will be able to deny any request if it “furthers a compelling governmental interest.”

    This is something most militaries around the world are grappling with. The South African army recently dropped charges against an officer who had been indicted for wearing a Muslim headscarf under her military beret.

        The problem with beards is that gas masks do not fit properly and are rendered useless. And the word "uniform" means exactly what it says. Can Westerners now wear cowboy hats and boots, part of their long-standing tradition? Can they wear a MAGA hat, approved personally by their Commander-In-Chief? Are we going to stop the war five times a day so that the Muslims can pray? Are we going to now provide halal meals in all mess facilities?
