    The Story Behind This California Man’s Driver’s License Literally Had an Entire DMV Clapping
    When a U.S. Marine Corps veteran went to the DMV to get his license renewed in earlier December, he was asked to take off his ‘USMC’ hat for the photo.

    The veteran, Alex Morales, didn’t want to remove the hat and he had a powerful reason. When he was asked the second time, Morales made an observation that had the employees at the DMV at a loss for words.

    Morales’s wife, Henrietta, posted about what Alex did to her Facebook page:


    Her post reads:

    Today Alex went to the DMV to renew his license. When he was told to go have his picture taken he noticed that there were some men having their picture taken, these men were wearing turbins on there heads.

    Alex was asked to take his hat off to have his picture taken. He said “no”, and “no” again when asked the second time. When he was asked why he would not remove his hat he said, “those men didn’t remove their head wear, I shouldn’t either”.

    It was explained that this was their attire and their religion. Alex told the DMV person that what he had on was his attire and when he entered the Marines he declared an oath to the USA, and one nation under God, so that his oath was under God so just as good as his religion.

    Well, the DMV people didn’t know what to do, they spoke to supervisors and called Sacramento. Alex was told, after an hour, that he could wear his hat for the picture and if there were any problems they would let him know and he could appeal their decision. He told them if there was a problem he WILL appeal it.

    Alex feels no one has more right to display their head gear then a Veteran or active service person. When he left several employees at the DMV clapped quietly for him.

    Nine days later Henrietta shared a picture of Alex’s license photo.

    Looking at his face, I would just assume that he is not the kind who will accept "NO" when he makes a request that is simple and reasonable.
