    ... There's no such thing as individuality in the U.S. Fighting Forces. They want everybody to be a blendable team unit. No exceptions.

    I can't believe they pulled this ish. It seems that they are attacking us(sistas) first it was the no short short faded hair styles(which I had only seen sistas rockin now Locs too. What is the reasoning? Not like it matters, they will do what they like. So happy to be broke and free. They need to get on those "becky's" about those ponytails and messed up colors!

    Much love to all my AF sistas!






    Well until this came down there was NOTHING in writing forbiding locs as long as they could fit under your cap and didn't exceed the bulk stated in the AFI people could grumble but they couldn't MAKE you take them out. S

    Blondnaps, are you going to stop wearing twist, cause you know folks aren't going to be able to tell the difference. Goodness I hate them <_<

    I've met one AA female Chief and she was a female dog but she was only a female dog to the AA airmen( I was in ALS and she was the ALS and the NCOA. She was a hateful permie( I was a permie too) but it was like she hated "us"

    I agree. It's completely ridiculous. It's a shame that racism exist in the military. I was getting frustrated with stories, so I decided to start a petition allowing African-American women to start wearing locks. https://www.change.org/p/brittany-ja...n-the-military. I know that the Army and the marines allows it, but not the navy and the air force. This definitely need to change. I do think it's very discriminative.

    RJ,

    I think this may be a "change"... I've never noticed it before. AFI36-2903 15 JUNE 2006, Table 1.5. Personal Grooming Standards specifically states:

    "Dreadlocks are not authorized"

    Since a lot of time/effort goes into conditioning hair to "lock" I think troops need to be forewarned so their efforts won't be wasted.
    Could you please forward this to the AACA ( African American Cultural Association) e-mail grouping? Just trying to get it out to the right audience.

    v/r,

    Chief Davis

    So for those of us who already have locs.....WATCH OUT....you know the counseling sessions will be coming soon and for those of us who considered locing...we'll I guess my dream is going to be put on hold for 13 more years...keep us updated on what your leadership is saying. I will be posting this is the LOC discussion forum also to prewarn those military ladies
    I'm sorry that's the lesson... they're missing out on great people...
