United States Army Further Recognizes Germanic Neopaganism

Readers studying or practicing Germanic Neopaganism will be interested in a recent decision by the United States Military. As Karl E. H. Seigfried reports at Norsemyth.org:

"The United States Army has finally added Ásatrú and Heathen as options in its religious preference list. This follows two recent victories for Heathens in the Armed Forces: the 2013 addition of Thor’s hammer to the official list of “available emblems of belief for placement on government headstones and markers” by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the 2014 addition of Ásatrú and Heathen to the Air Force’s religious preference list."
