US military in South Korea allowed not to shave and wear earrings

44
American military personnel stationed in South Korea may now not shave and wear earrings during off-duty hours. The decision on this was made by the new commander of the US 8 Army, Lieutenant General Michael Bills, writes on Thursday, February 22, the Army Times newspaper.


US military in South Korea allowed not to shave and wear earrings


Major Sergeant-Major Richard Merritt noted that earlier the command "more strictly treated the appearance of our soldiers out of respect for the cultural traditions of the local population."

However, times are changing. Koreans have become more tolerant of Western standards of appearance, so the command is reviewing their requirements
Said Merritt.

Not so long ago, the command of the US Army, faced with the problem of a shortage of recruits due to military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, revised its negative attitude towards tattoos. The order was amended, allowing to sign a contract with those who have tattoos on the hands and on the back of the neck, reports TASS.

        Inspired - an old joke:
        "The guy comes home with an earring in his ear. Father looks at him and says:
        “You know, son, from time immemorial, earrings were worn either by pirates or ........ I’m looking out the window now, and God forbid, your ship is not standing there ...”

          These will be special anti-glare earrings. The Pentagon must urgently find a manufacturer for such an advanced thing and cut another billion.

    Will they buy bras, or will they be individually taken from each measurement? fool We also need women's shoes, leggings, thongs, tampons, cosmetics - without this, soldiers of the US Army will not look like a beloved!

    Then they will allow smoking (and not only tobacco), plump, behave like a pig and morally decompose. Shortage is the same)))

    This garbage can only be for those who have not really seen the war, i.e. in the striped army! You look at them - they are beyond the bounds of reason in everything except the crazy, some kind of unhealthy love of money ...
