Religious Accommodation Policy Changes


THE PENTAGON RELEASED A REVISION TO THE EXISTING
INSTRUCTION ON RELIGIOUS ACCOMMODATION. WHILE THERE ARE CHANGES, THE DOD’S VISION
REMAINS THE SAME. “OUR COMMITMENT IS STRONG TO HONORING THE
RELIGIOUS AND SPIRITUAL VALUES OF OUR PEOPLE.” THE REVISIONS ALLOW COMMANDERS TO ENSURE RELIGIOUS
PRACTICES AND EXPRESSION ARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NAVY’S MISSION. ONE NOTABLE CHANGE INCLUDES SECNAV’S APPROVAL
FOR RELIGIOUS GROOMING AND APPEARANCE PRACTICES. THIS ALLOWS FOR GREATER UNIFORMITY IN HOW
OUR POLICIES ARE DECIDED AND CARRIED OUT. “WHEN WE’RE MADE AWARE OF A SITUATION THAT
APPEARS TO CHALLENGE THE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM OF SERVICE MEMBERS, INCLUDING CHAPLAINS, WE
ARE EAGER TO STEP FORWARD TO HELP RESOLVE IT. ” VISIT YOUR COMMAND CHAPLAIN OR JAG OFFICER
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS NEW DOD DIRECTIVE. FROM THE DEFENSE MEDIA ACTIVITY, I’M PETTY
OFFICER JEN BLAKE.
