“We must embrace, promote and unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion,”According to an email sent earlier this year, the order was addressed to Guam’s Andersen Air Force Base.

It was concerning to see how much money and time had been invested, they said. “woke”Instead of social programming, consider using it for your next project. “recruiting, training and equipping the lethal force we need to defend this country.”
