We had a Sikh cadre soldier

We had a Sikh cadre soldier in my basic training unit in 1961 who was allowed to wear his turban. They started enforcing the ban in the 1970s due to concerns about safety. Obviously, you need to wear a helmet in combat or on a hand grenade range. Beards were also allowed for a few years in the Navy, but that law was scrapped, too.
