A White House petition calling for the president to order the Army to reconsider its new grooming regulation fell short of its goal, but the female sergeant who started the petition still considers her effort a win.
Jasmine Jacobs, who exited service in the Georgia National Guard this month, said the petition garnered more than 17,500 signatures before it expired Saturday. The number didn’t come close to the 100,000 signatures necessary to trigger a White House response.
