First female Muslim imam of US Air Force shatters glass ceilings

A woman of Indian descent has become the U.S. Air Force’s first female Muslim chaplain candidate, breaking taboos and shattering glass ceilings.

Second Lt. Saleha Jabeen on Dec. 18, 2019 was appointed at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago by Air Force Chief of Chaplains Maj. Gen. Steven Schaick, the Air Force said.

“Any time we advance religious freedoms, it’s a win for all persons of faith,” Steven Schaick said during Jabeen’s commissioning ceremony.

“This is a big day not just for Muslims, but for persons of all faiths. I could not be more proud of our Air Force for being willing to commission and embrace the first female Imam in the Department of Defense,” he added by emphasizing the importance of diversity in the Air Force’s chaplaincy.

4. She's out of uniform

As such, she does not rate a salute from any enlisted member of any military branch of service of this country.

'nuff said.

8. Marines are not covered (wear headgear) while indoors.....

A snappy military salute is only rendered between two military members who are properly covered.

Therefore, Marines do not make use of the hand salute while indoors. That person, who is depicted with a towel wrapped around her head, does not rate a salute from this old gyrene.

And, never will.

As an afterthought...... take the "political correctness" out of the US military, and then, and only then, will we start winning wars again.
