A future for Sikhs in the U.S. military?

I totally applaud the decision to allow a Sikh to keep his beard, hair, and turban while he serves in the U.S. military. Sadly, the decision only applies to this particular individual and is not a blanket allowance.

Why do we have to be so backwards and hide-bound? Are we that flush in recruits that we can afford to be so dictatorial in so many ways (facial hair, other hair, sexual preferences)?
