    I agree with tug. There is no way this will stand, nor should it. I was a little miffed though on how they dragged in the pic of academy cadets and some brief paragraphs about the academy. I thought that was a bit of a stretch.

    No....but using God in the thread title wouldn't get the same attention.

    The man making the complaint is enlisted, correct? With no real or formal connection to USAFA (other than they are both "Air Force").

    Sigh...

    It's always something.

    Nobody has ever accused Yahoo of committing journalism.

    I wonder how long it will take this to get to the Supreme Court.

    If I've heard correctly, the policy was changed to allow people to omit the "God" part, but then some legal eagle noted that the text including "God" came from US federal law, not DoD policy. Therefore, they apparently reasoned that the USAF did not have the authority to make "so help me God"

    Bureaucracy trumps common sense.

    USAFA parade uniforms make you proud of the Navy? :confused1:

    That's OK. USAF colors are Ultramarine Blue and Air Force Yellow.
