This Marine refused to take his hat off at the DMV, and I don’t blame him.
This Marine, Alex Morales went down to the California DMV not too long ago to get his drivers license renewed. The DMV employees told Alex Morales he had to remove his USMC hat for his picture. After being asked several times Alex Morales still refused to remove his hat, stating that if others were allowed to wear head gear (several people with turbans on) he should be able too as well. The DMV employees expressed to Alex Morales that that the men with turbans on were allowed to have head gear on for their picture because it is a part of their religion. Alex Morales quickly rebutted with the fact that the Marine Corps was as close to any religion as someone could get and that he swore an oath “one nation under God”. By now the DMV employees are getting pretty butt hurt about Alex’s USMC hat, so they actually called the state capital to try and figure this out. After waiting a good hour Alex Morales finally won, and got to keep his hat on. After this check out these Marines who have gone back overseas to help out against ISIS.
