I don't see why the DOD/Military should care about facial hair with their ridiculous tolerance of tattoos. What is worse, a neat beard or a Hell's Angels tattoo that's visible while in uniform? You tattoo lovers can calm down...I'm taking about GIs looking like gang members or prison inmates. I served and the only break we got was we could have moustaches while in combat zones.
I hear the counter argument that GIs have always had tattoos...true enough...but NEVER visible while in uniform on duty. Most of those old-timer tattoos were unit crests and such.
