I served in the armed forces during the Korean War and learned to eat bacon and ham and whatever was on a menu since hunger, not religion was a dominant thought. Today, the US Army is providing both Halal and Kosher meals for Muslim and Jewish members of the military. Over 1.2 million such meals were given to troops during 2009. I wonder if this could begin a new trend which would result in respecting the religious and cultural beliefs of those who serve. Then again, if soldiers get the meal do they get the time off to enjoy it? After all, how about a Seder in Iraq or Afghanistan in order to show the local Muslims we are an equal opportunity employer?
i wonder if this could initiate a new trend that respects cultural and personal beliefs of members of the military. How about a little peyote seeking peace of mind, and time off to enjoy its pleasant dreams?
