He got the same answer from the recruiter,.... "Go away and bother someone else, we don't have time to pander to individualists".
Well I all ready joined. I all ready served. And no one had a problem about my facial hair. Hasn't anyone read the OFFICIAL DOD paper?
Its not individuality. Its freedom of religion. It only seems it's religion you have the problem with.
