    The article states the following:

    Army Maj. Gen. Gina Farrisee clarified the decision was based on an individual case and did not represent an official change in Army policy.

    "This accommodation is based solely on the facts and circumstances of your case," Farrisse said in a letter to Kalsi. "This accommodation does not constitute a blanket accommodation for any other individual."

    Still a great step for sure!
