    Regarding their prestigious attitudes - refer to my posts on the Tuskegee Airmen. They also experienced bigotry and judgementalism.

    Explain why you say that.

    From these respected officers, the only one who talks about Sikh philosophy at 14:30, he's spot on! Its the same thing I have said here; Sikhism = fighting against bigotry and oppression and fighting for justice. What makes you think they are not Sikh in my books?

    Internet media is amazing, we never know who we are going to meet. My father worked with Marshall Of IAF Arjan Singh during 1965 war at Halwara Air Force Station. He was very courageous brave son of India. He carried out few missions from there which you might know as well.

    India was the largest volunteer force during World War II. We actually fought for both sides in the war, Allies and Axis!!!
