    Beards were allowed in most militaries up until around WWI, when gasses were used wholesale against troops. You can't properly seal a gas mask with a beard. These days it's pretty irrelevant, since few nations would use gas for fear of retaliation in kind, or nuclear retaliation (Maybe not under our current president, but it had been US policy to treat nuclear, biological and chemical weapons the same, and use of any of them warranted a nuclear response). The other reason is, most agents used can be absorbed through the skin, so unless you run around in full MOPP gear (very hot, and soldiers fall out quickly when wearing it, so it's rarely put on), a gas mask won't protect you. They are most useful against tear gas, which is nearly useless outside of cities and enclosed areas.

    Shaving the head was meant to humiliate recruits and dehumanize them so they could be "broken down and then built up". Keeping hair shorter had a few reasons.
    1.) You look better in the picture sent home to mom.
    2.) You look better and provide a positive image to civilians.
    3.) Very short hair and shaved heads are easy to keep lice-free.
    4.) Long hair CAN be used as a grapple point.

    That said, I have a beard and mustache, but they are too short to get a grip on (yes, I've had people try. Their attempts hurt, but they didn't get a hold of me, and it just made me beat them harder). To counter the above poster, I've never had a problem eating neatly with mustache/beard, and they aren't hard to keep clean. Even a long one you just brush it out like your hair. If you get lice, you shave.

    Re: Special Forces and beards. They are allowed facial hair and longer hair for a couple of reasons.
    1.) In general, when on a covert op, you blend in better looking like biker trash than being clean-cut. people tend to ignore "unsavory" characters.
    2.) In our middle east wars, the people there don't trust, and have no respect for men without beards, the longer the better. They also want to stand face to face, close enough to smell your stinking breath.
    3.) In Asian wars, the local populations, and lower-level troops were afraid of the round-eyed, bearded barbarians. Fear in your enemy is good.

    The Muslim fighters have long beards and they are pretty brave, disregarding the technological huge gap. and seems their fighting spirit wears the western beardless troops out.

    I also know that the sign of a Germanic free men was long hair and a beard. Enslaved prisoners had their hairs cut.

    Harald Hårfagre grew his hair and beard long and this was so unusual that he became famous for it, so I'm not sure how common it was.

    I've read that in some Germanic tribes you were only allowed to shave after you had killed a man. Kings usually would have long hair as they didn't do manual labour, but most men worked on the farm to sustain their family.

    Having a beard gives you a disadvantage in melee combat.

    Tacitus states that among the Catti, a Germanic tribe (perhaps the Chatten), a young man was not allowed to shave or cut his hair until he had slain an enemy. The Lombards derived their fame from the great length of their beards (Longobards – Long Beards – Langbärte). When Otto the Great said anything serious, he swore by his beard, which covered his breast.

    No it doesn't. Reach for my beard and you lose your arm. You have to get past my shield and weapon first and then probably past any of my friends etc.

    Anti-Beard Propaganda

    I'm just playing devil's advocate here. Don't hate me.



















    Peter's visits to the West impressed upon him the notion that European customs were in several respects superior to Russian traditions. He commanded all of his courtiers and officials to cut off their long beards—causing his Boyars, who were very fond of their beards, great upset[13]—and wear European clothing. Boyars who sought to retain their beards were required to pay an annual beard tax of one hundred rubles.
    Narrated Nafi': "Ibn Umar said, The Prophet said, 'Do the opposite of what the pagans do. Keep the beards and cut the moustaches short.'

    I wonder if it has to do with their beard, or their general masculinity and sureness in their cause against the Western devils formed by their Traditional culture.

    The only brave muslims I have known were clean shaven. As were most of the men in Iraq, Iraqis told us anyone with a beard was a religious fanatic. Officers and upper class had mustaches.

    I am told Afghanistan is much different.
    "Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect."

    The Truth About Hair - Covered Up Since The Vietnam War
    09/28/2011
    13 Comments
    *

    *** This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Vietnam (sometimes spelled Viet Nam) War.

    Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Vietnam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.

    In the early nineties,* Sally [name changed to protect privacy]* was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder.* Most of them had served in Viet Nam.

    Sally said, ”I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor’s Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example.

    As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Vietnam War special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.

    With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these indian trackers were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field.

    Serious casualties and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.

    Don't Forget...WE MAKE SHIRTS TOO! ApparentlyApparel.com
    ** When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistantly that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer ’sense’ the enemy, they could no longer access a ’sixth sense’ , their ’intuition’ no longer was reliable, they couldn’t ’read’ subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information.

    So the testing institute recruited more Native American trackers, let them keep their long hair, and tested them in multiple areas. Then they would pair two men together who had received the same scores on all the tests.* They would let one man in the pair keep his hair long, and gave the other man a military haircut. Then the two men retook the tests.

    Time after time the man with long hair kept making high scores. Time after time, the man with the short hair failed the tests in which he had previously scored high scores.

    Here is a typical test:

    The recruit is sleeping out in the woods.* An armed ’enemy’ approaches the sleeping man.* The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible.

    In another version of this test the long haired man senses an approach and somehow intuits that the enemy will perform a physical attack. He follows his ’sixth sense’ and stays still, pretending to be sleeping, but quickly grabs the attacker and ’kills’ him as the attacker reaches down to strangle him.

    This same man, after having passed these and other tests, then received a military haircut and consistantly failed these tests, and many other tests that he had previously passed.

    So the document recommended that all Indian trackers be exempt from military haircuts. In fact, it required that trackers keep their hair long.”

    Additional Notes:

    The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of human and animal at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animal to survive.* Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole. The body has a reason for every part of itself.

    Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved ’feelers’ or ’antennae’ that transmit vast amounts of important information to the Brainstem, the Limbic system, and the Neocortex.

    Not only does hair in people, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain,* hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then rephotographed after the hair is cut.

    When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in numbing-out .

    Cutting of hair is a contributing factor to unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems.* It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.

    Conclusion:

    In searching for solutions for the distress in our world, it may be time for us to consider that many of our most basic assumptions about reality are in error.* It may be that a major part of the solution is looking at us in the face each morning when we see ourselves in the mirror.

    The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson’s hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated.

    Lynn,

    That's simply great! Both of you had a chance to connect with this article - I feel like reaching just one or two people sometimes is juust enough. I too stopped cutting, rather, started growing my hair out the minute I posted this article, back in September of last year. I definitely think there is more to it, as I have had an amazing six or seven months so far with long hair, I'm getting back in touch with my Native American roots, I can feel it!

    Thank you so much - I hope you liked this article/website! I really put my heart into it. Information is free...and t-shirts are my artform.

    I hope you enjoy both.

    Hair as an antennae (plural)

    I laid out electronic circuit boards for a profession.
    All current creates radio radio waves as a matter of fact.
    Alternating current is changed to direct current by means
    of a diode.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diode#Solid-state_diodes

    Diodes are either made of selenium or germanium.-fact-
    Hair follicles contain selenium.
    Selenium is needed for hair to grow.

    http://www.livestrong.com/article/29...l-hair-growth/

    Hair needs copper.
    link:http://www.pamrotella.com/health/copper.html
    also check out 'copper peptides'.

    Hair contains copper. It acts as an antennae.
    Radio waves are received by the hair, converted in to
    DC current by the selenium in the hair follicles.
    The selenium in the hair follicles can be of varying strengths
    therefore even possibly creating some transistors as well.

    It is my supposition that the current goes directly to the
    brain, which just happens to be very close to the hair
    follicles.

    We are radio receivers.

    The evidence of the indians with long hair having an extra
    or I would say different sensitivity/awareness is because of the long hair. If you have short hair you will be receiving
    wave lengths of higher frequency. Longer hair will receive
    lower wave lengths.

    This is all natural physics and chemical facts.

    I'm gonna let my hair grow long again and see what happens.
    I'm also going to start taking copper supplements.!

    You welcome, JD

    I'm going to look into copper myself, and I'm already working with magnetized water, which is helping grow my hair faster. If you have not read that article, I suggest you do.

    Well, I keep my hair short. BUT, I have my fabulous exotic bird feathers sticking up from the back of my head. A friend asked me if I wanted feathers and my reply was, "you mean like a rare exotic bird? Of course."

    Years later, I was working at a reception desk and a woman approached the desk to check in. She then stated that she worked for Naropa Institute and further stated, "That's how you know." nodding toward my head.

    "Know what?" I responded.

    "The feathers. That's how you know which instructors are the true shamans and which are not," she replied.

    Reallly?!

    I immediately called my haircutting friend and informed her that she had been unknowingly cutting shamanic hair styles onto people.

    I also had another friend who was extremely psychic. She developed allopecia and, in response, shaved her head, though wore a hat at all times, as she was picking up things quite directly with a bald head.

    So, really, the length of hair is quite irrelevant. It all depends on the awareness level and abilities of the person with relationship to their hair. We all experience it in different ways and length really isn't the big issue.

    COPPER DEFICIENCIES

    After responding to your article on hair and looking for web sites
    on 'hair and copper' I discovered a link between Copper
    deficiency and aneurysms as well as a host of other illinises
    caused by copper deficiency.
    As I had a stent put in my main artery due to a large aneurysm
    it most likely saved my life. Since my mother and others in
    my immediate family have had aneurysms I notified everyone
    in my family tree.

    My thanks have to go to you for your wonderful article. If it
    wasn't for your article I would not have discovered the truth
    about copper deficiency.

    I plan to buy copper supplements for everyone in my family
    and do a lot more research.

    I do have a page on heaven.
