WTH? Obama Changes Rules to Allow Hijabs in the Military! Read more: http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/just-before-leaving-office​-obama-army-dr
THIS IS INSANE!!! Here is the link with picture.

The code has been historically strict, but now in a shocking change, the military announced an immediate change which requires all brigade-level commanders to make religious allowances for “servicemen and women who wear beards, turbans or hijabs.”

The announcement came from a letter signed by Obama’s Secretary of the Army, Eric Fanning:

The new guidelines also revise hairstyle standards for female soldiers: They can now wear dreadlocks in addition to cornrows and twists, which were allowed in a revision made in 2014.* Like other hairstyles, locks must be relatively small, uniform, neat, and tied off inconspicuously, and women don’t have to request an accommodation to wear them.
This might seem like an odd choice for a policy directive in the final days of the Obama administration. It came about largely in response to litigation and advocacy from Sikh servicemen who wear beards and turbans for religious reasons, and who wanted to be able to keep them while actively serving.
Some religious leaders including Douglas Carver, a Southern Baptist minister, and the conservative Becket Fund for Religious Liberty support the move, as those who are willing to fight and die for America shouldn’t have to compromise their faith and religious practices.

Apparently, this move is largely in response to legal challenges surrounding turbans mostly worn Sikh-Americans:

Once that approval occurs, the change will ensure that the religious accommodation is enduring and applies to most positions within the US Army.
“This is a major progress, not just for the Sikh-American community but for our nation’s military. Sikh-Americans love this country and want a fair chance to serve in our country on equal footing. Today’s announcement will help do just that,” Congressman Joe Crowley said welcoming the directive issued by the US Army Secretary.

“We are a stronger nation, with a stronger military because of our respect for religious and personal freedom,” he said.
