DMV Officers Had To Call Their Supervisors When This Man Refused To Comply. But His Reasoning Is Priceless.

Alex, a proud veteran, went to the DMV to renew his license. While he was there, he noticed some men wearing turbans who were allowed to keep their headgear on for their photos. When Alex was asked to remove his hat, he refused, citing the men in turbans as an example. He explained that his hat was his attire and that he had taken an oath to the country, just as those men had taken an oath to their religion. The DMV staff was unsure of what to do and sought guidance from their supervisors and Sacramento. After an hour, Alex was allowed to wear his hat for his photo, with the option to appeal the decision if necessary. The DMV employees applauded him quietly as he left, and Alex plans to speak with other veterans about their right to display their headgear.

Today Alex went to the DMV to renew his license. When he was told to go have his picture taken he noticed that there were some men having their picture taken, these men were wearing turbins on there heads. Alex was asked to take his hat off to have his picture taken. He said “no”, and “no” again when asked the second time. When he was asked why he would not remove his hat he said, “those men didn’t remove their head wear, I shouldn’t either”.

It was explained that this was their attire and their religion. Alex told the DMV person that what he had on was his attire and when he entered the Marines he declared an oath to the USA, and one nation under God, so that his oath was under God so just as good as his religion. Well, the DMV people didn’t know what to do, they spoke to supervisors and called Sacramento.

Alex was told, after an hour, that he could wear his hat for the picture and if there were any problems they would let him know and he could appeal their decision. He told them if there was a problem he WILL appeal it. Alex feels no one has more right to display their head gear then a Veteran or active service person. When he left several employees at the DMV clapped quietly for him. He has spoken to few other Veterans and they plan to do the same.
