Lloyd Austin on Civil Rights

 

 


Troops need to help stamp out extremism in the ranks

Troops who have encountered extremism from their fellow service members should share those experiences with their leaders, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said. In the video, Austin said the military needs troops' help to stamp out extremism and extremist ideologies, or "views and conduct that run counter to everything that we believe in, and which can actually tear at the fabric of who we are as an institution."

Austin said he wants service members to revisit their oaths to the Constitution. "Read those words again," he said. "Consider what they really mean."

"We have serious commitments around the world, and people depend on us," Austin said. "So we can't afford actions and behavior that are at odds with our values and that undermine good order and discipline, that harm or harass or otherwise violate the oath that we share, and the bonds of trust upon which we all rely."
