Not a veteran?

We’d love to talk to you about supporting this critical initiative. You can contact the committee care of the American Constitutional Rights Union for more information by emailing us here.

Civilians, veterans, and military can sign this important letter!

If you are a concerned citizen or former military member who wants to help keep our military strong, please read the Honor the Oath petition addressed to Hon. Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Defense.

We are calling on Mr. Austin to honor his oath by bringing to an immediate end activities currently underway in your Department that are incompatible with that solemn commitment. Specifically, the armed services are being fractured by the Countering Extremism Working Group program — initiatives that vilify our Constitution and are an affront to patriotic Americans.

Generals, veterans, and citizens issue petition accusing sec of defense Austin of violating his oath to the US Constitution

July 2, 2021|

The Committee to Support and Defend has initiated a petition to the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to "honor his oath" to "support and defend" the Constitution of the United States. The petition "respectfully insists" that Austin immediately countermand orders he has issued since taking office that have eroded military cohesion and readiness. The petition argues that Critical Race Theory is a toxic Marxist ideology with anti-constitutional objectives. Ordering its teaching in the military endangers America's national security, in contravention to Austin's oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the United States from all enemies.
