Major Kamaljeet Singh Kalsi, Captain Tejdeep Singh Rattan and Corporal Simran Preet Singh Lamba are the only three Sikhs serving in the US Army currently.

They now want to see a change in federal policy that allows not just Sikhs but other Indian-Americans to join the military irrespective of their religious beliefs and practices.
