Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said Hagel directed the deputy secretary of
defense to work with the service secretaries and the military chiefs to review their respective
policies. The admiral made the announcement during a Pentagon news conference today.

Members of the caucus sent Hagel a letter in response to changes to Army Regulation 670-1,
Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia. Members of the caucus are concerned the
regulation is offensive and biased against women of color.

In a response dated today, Hagel told members of the caucus that he has given the services 30
days to “review the definitions of authorized and prohibited hairstyles contained in each of their
respective policies and revise any offensive language.”

The services have 90 days to review their hairstyle policies as they pertain to African-American
women “to ensure standards are fair and respectful of our diverse force, while also meeting our
military services’ requirements,” Kirby said. “After a thorough review of the service
recommendations, he will make whatever appropriate adjustments to DOD policy are necessary.”
