Anmol Narang, the first Sikh woman graduates from U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Anmol Narang was inclined towards military service as her maternal grandfather's was in the Indian Army, since then she dreamt to go into the military.
Anmol Narang will now complete her Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC) at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. After the successful completion of BOLC, she will then head to her first posting in Okinawa, Japan, in January of 2021, according to the non-profit organization Sikh Coalition.
Second-generation immigrants, she was raised in Georgia. She attended a year of undergraduate study at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She was then transferred to West Point where she graduates with a degree in nuclear engineering. Later, she hopes to pursue a career in air defense systems.
"I am excited and honoured to be fulfilling my dream of graduating from West Point on Saturday. The confidence and support of my community back home in Georgia has been deeply meaningful to me, and I am humbled that in reaching this goal, I am showing other Sikh Americans that any career path is possible for anyone willing to rise to the challenge,"
According to Congress law which was passed in 1987, the law prohibited Sikhs and other religious communities from maintaining their articles of faith while in the military. A Sikh’s visible articles of faith, including turbans and unshorn facial hair were banned. But Lt. Anmol Narang didn't require any accommodations for her faith's articles.
"Her exemplary service to date underscores how diversity and pluralism remain core strengths of the U.S. Military and the country as a whole"
We are all feeling proud of her accolade. Lt. Anmol Narang you are inspiring many to chase their dreams.
