Sikh WWII Veteran Who Fought to Wear Turban in Royal Canadian Legion Dies - NBC News

my article for NBC Asian America
"Lt.Col Pritam Singh's story is an example of service; service as a soldier and as a member of the community," wrote the current Canadian Minister of National Defense, Harjit Singh Sajjan, in the forward of Jauhal's 2013 memoir, "A Soldier Remembers." "He witnessed the ferocity and cruelty of war and earned his right to be called a combat veteran. Lt.Col Pritam Singh earned this right as a soldier from India serving the British, but he did this as a Sikh wearing his turban proudly."
