“I Am Repulsed By Some OfThe New Regulations That AreBeing Put Into Place”
“My Husband Has Tattoos VisibleOn His Hands And On His Neck”
“He’s Fought Two Tours InAfghanistan And Watched HisFriends Die In Front Of Him”
 
“Because He Has These Tattoos, You’reGoing To Kick My Husband Out Of HisCareer?”
I cannot begin to comprehend why it is OK to go die and fight for your countrywith these tattoos but not OK to be seen within the country you just fought for andwatched your friends die for with these same tattoos.
Letters To The EditorArmy TimesJune 4, 2012I am repulsed by some of the new regulations that are being put into place.I understand the normal regulations with hair and appearance and such.But what I do not understand is how you can tell someone on their leave, on theirweekends or vacations with their families, that they have to be clean-shaven 24/7.Yes, that’s what every solider wants to do is leave the desert after months of fighting tocome home on rest and recuperation and worry about the hair on his face every singlemorning when (he) only wants to hold (his) spouse or children possibly.I can promise you that the captains, sergeants and anyone else who gives these regs abig “Hoo-ah” are going to find themselves too busy one weekend to shave and be ahypocrite to everything they are saying should be changed.The other thing is the tattoos.I cannot begin to comprehend why it is OK to go die and fight for your country with thesetattoos but not OK to be seen within the country you just fought for and watched yourfriends die for with these same tattoos.My husband has tattoos visible on his hands and on his neck.He’s fought two tours in Afghanistan and watched his friends die in front of him.He has been in the Army infantry with the MOS of 11 Bravo since he was 17.Because he has these tattoos, you’re going to kick my husband out of his career?Why be so judgmental against soldiers with tattoos who have already been in and giventheir lives to you?Brittany PernellFort Richardson, Alaska
