Retired Colonel G.B. Singh is the highest-ranking Sikh to serve in the U.S. Army. As you'll hear in this podcast, he repeatedly demonstrated the tenacity, courage, and eternal optimism of Sikhs while maintaining his peaceful, positive demeanor when confronted with discrimination and ignorance. He successfully fought the pressure to conform to the Turban Ban and stood out for years as the only person with a turban and beard. To combat the ban, he invented safe methods for Sikhs with beards and turbans to use gas masks and helmets. Over time, the ban was lifted and religious exemptions have become more and more common. Today, GB watches his daughter Naureen, a newly-commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force, join a military more equitable than the one he joined.

In this episode, we hear the story of his military career and his advice on leadership and service for young Sikhs.
