Jaspreet Singh US Military: A Sikh US military man stationed in Burlington County is making U.S. history. The Air Force has granted him a religious accommodation so he would not have to lose his identity and practice his religion while in uniform.
The cold on Thursday was a reminder to Airman 1st Class Jaspreet Singh. He’s a long way from his home in Southern California, but thanks to a change in uniform, he’s getting back in touch with his roots.
To keep the Air Force soaring high, there’s a host of hard-working maintenance men and women at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. Singh is part of the fire and refueler truck maintenance staff. With his accommodation approved, Singh becomes just the third member of the Air Force allowed to wear a turban.
