Army Grants Accommodations to 3 Sikh-American Soldiers to Serve with Turbans, Beards - NBC News

my article for NBC News
"In the past two weeks, we just witnessed the military double the number of accommodations that have been granted to Sikh soldiers in over 30 years," Amandeep Sidhu, partner at McDermott Will & Emery, told NBC News. "These recent religious accommodations represent significant progress for our clients, but still contain troubling restrictions that allow the Army the option to revoke the basic freedom of practicing their faith while serving our country. The Army is making progress, but these recent accommodations alone do not absolve the [Department of Defense] from ending the broader ban that prohibits Sikhs from serving like every other American."
