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"
