Military Allows Asatru Beards

This article from Business Insider says the United States Army will allow an Asatru soldier to keep his beard. The article "A US soldier who worships the Norse thunder god Thor just got permission to keep his beard" by John Haltiwanger, April 26, 2018 (accessed October 27, 2019), https://www.businessinsider.com/us-soldier-who-worships-norse-god-thor-permitted-to-keep-beard-2018-4

Veterans Day 2012

In the United States, November 11 is Veterans Day. It is a day to remember those who served in the military during war and peace, and being thankful for their efforts to keep the citizenry of the U.S. safe and defend the Constitution.

Some Asatru people don't always feel as though they are really part of American society. This is usually due to the strong presence of Christianity in its various forms and the way it permeates American culture. You may even wonder if these soldiers are really defending us or if we are just incidental in their defense of a Christian America.
