CAMP LEJEUNE, NC — An entire rifle squad which has converted to Asatru, or Northern European Heathenry, has expressed disappointment in new Pentagon dress code requirements, claiming religious exemptions to military uniform standards are not inclusive enough.
The Asatru devotees complain they are not allowed to wear their religious clothing in uniform unlike Sikh, Muslim, and Jewish members.

Located on the Silk Road trade route linking China with the eastern Mediterranean, ancient Afghanistan was a magnet for settlers from different ethnicities and religions, from Hindus, Muslims and Jews to Buddhists and Zoroastrians. The National Museum’s collections reflected this diversity, including priceless objects dating back to the Bronze and Stone Ages. Among its most prized artifacts were a statue of King Kanishka, ruler of the Kushan empire that ruled much of South Asia from the 1st to the 4th century A.D., and the Bactrian Hoard, a cache of some 20,000 gold, silver and ivory objects recovered from ancient burial mounds in northern Afghanistan in the late 1970s.
In 1988, nearly a decade into Afghanistan’s bitter civil war, National Museum and government officials made the decision to transfer many of the museum’s most valuable artifacts including the Bactrian Hoard to secret hiding places at the Ministry of Information, the presidential palace and other locations. “Key keepers” for these secret vaults went to great lengths, at considerable risk to their personal safety, to keep such valuables hidden through the civil war and the years of Taliban rule that followed. During their rampage through the museum in March 2001, Taliban fighters destroyed some 2,500 artifacts, including two giant statues of the Buddha carved from the cliffs of Bamian province in central Afghanistan some 1,400 years ago.
