According to The Washington Times, three academy cadets who refused a COVID-19 vaccine on religious grounds will be allowed to graduate. Still, they won’t participate in the school’s May 25 graduation event and, more importantly, will not be commissioned as new second lieutenants in the Air Force.

One US Air Force Base Policy Bans Use Of Pronouns For Individual Troops

One division of the U.S. Air Force’s Pacific Air Forces, or PACAF, has ordered commanders to stop using pronouns, saying it would help increase “lethality” of U.S. forces.

The Pentagon’s war on common sense continues apace.

One division of the U.S. Air Force’s Pacific Air Forces, or PACAF, has ordered commanders to stop using pronouns, saying it would help increase “lethality” of U.S. forces.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, which reportedly obtained a copy of the order, the directive was sent to senior leaders at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. The units there have responsibility for operations that could challenge China in the region.

“In accordance with the Diverse PACAF priority, ‘We must embrace, promote and unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion,’” the order stated.

“Competition against near-peer adversaries requires a united focus from the command, the joint team, and our international partners. Welcoming and employing varied perspectives from a foundation of mutual respect will improve our interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality.”

And the plan to achieve those improvements in “interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality” includes no longer referring to troops as he or she. “Do not use pronouns, age, race, etc.,” the order continues.

For example, according to the document obtained by the Free Beacon, when writing up performance reviews, awards and other documents, senior leaders are no longer authorized to use terms like “He/She did,” “Best male/female,” “Youngest/Oldest,” or even a rank and name.

Instead, they are authorized to note “This sergeant,” “This NCO [for non-commissioned officer],” and “This member.”

An Air Force spokesman at the base in Guam confirmed the order was real and said it showed that the Air Force is shifting to a “narrative writing format” that prohibits individual descriptors in order to “eliminate any information that could identify the nominee’s name, gender, age, or race so that all members had a fair and equal chance at winning.”

Leaders at the base, the spokesman continued, created this policy “to ensure each nominee was considered without the potential of unfair biases.” It’s part of their commitment “to remove barriers and … ensuring all members have the opportunity to excel.”

“Diversity and inclusion are force multipliers and warfighting imperatives that enable our competitive advantage against near-peer adversaries,” the spokesman added.

Sure, the Chinese are quaking in their boots because we’ll no longer refer to troops as he or she.
