Lyles commended the creation of the committee, saying, “This year marks a landmark event as the first committee to provide the Secretary of Defense with advice and recommendations to improve racial/ethnic diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity as a force multiplier in the military. armed. ”, the statement said.

The committee’s appointees will provide “recommendations on issues and policies related to enhancing racial/ethnic diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity within the Department with a primary focus on military personnel.”

The Pentagon has previously been criticized for its handling of similar social issues, and is currently investigating a diversity chief who reportedly sent out a series of tweets that were derided as derogatory toward whites.

The Pentagon does not have a timeline for that investigation at this time, according to a report from foxnews.

Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz criticized Austin and the Defense Department for focusing too much on social issues and less on maximizing military capabilities. “While everyone in the world seems to be building capacity and being more strategic, we have time to teach critical race theory at West Point, to embrace socialism at the National Defense University, to do mandatory pronoun training,” the congressman said.
