    Major Kalsi Recognized at Congressional Diwali Celebration

    Received by email as a Press Release


    On October 29, 2013, Major Kamaljeet Singh Kalsi, a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal-and one of only three Sikhs to be granted waivers to serve in the U.S. Army with their articles of faith intact-was publicly recognized for his military service by Congressman Joseph Crowley at a Diwali event on Capitol Hill. The event was attended by dozens of Congressional staffers and members of Congress. Earlier in the day, Major Kalsi also met with several Congressional offices to build support for the right of all Sikhs to serve in the U.S. military. The Sikh Coalition is inspired by Major Kalsi's example and encourages you to sign and share our petition to President Obama [ http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/1607/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=8101 ] in support of equal opportunity for all Sikh Americans who wish to serve in the U.S. military.
