SOLDIER TO CITIZEN

Spec. Simranpreet Lamba joins 12 other Soldiers in a naturalization ceremony recently at Fort Jackson, N.C. Lamba, a Sikh whose articles of faith include having unshorn hair covered by a turban and keeping a beard, is the first enlisted Sikh Soldier in at least 26 years who has been granted religious accommodations by the Army, allowing him to adhere to his articles of faith.
