US Pacific Air Forces banned all references to gender, race and age in an effort to improve “lethality.”
“In accordance with the Diverse PACAF priority, ‘We must embrace, promote and unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion,” said a May email sent to senior leaders at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, according to a partial copy of the order obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The Pacific Air Force — which is the branch tasked with confronting China — banned all references to gender, age, and race.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:
A division of the U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PACAF), the branch tasked with confronting China, has ordered its senior leaders and commanders to stop using gender pronouns in written formats, saying the shift to more neutral language will help improve the fighting force’s “lethality.”
Leaders at the base are instructed, “Do not use pronouns, age, race, etc.” when writing performance reviews or other materials, such as recommendations for awards. “Competition against near-peer adversaries requires a united focus from the command, the joint team, and our international partners. Welcoming and employing varied perspectives from a foundation of mutual respect will improve our interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality.”
The policy change is part of a larger effort by the Biden administration and U.S. military to foster what it says is a more culturally sensitive environment. The U.S. Navy, for instance, recently published a video instructing its sailors on proper gender pronouns. The Army also mandates gender identity training and trains officers on when to offer subordinates gender-transition surgery, the Free Beacon first reported in March. Critics of these moves say a woke cultural agenda is handicapping America’s fighting forces and distracting it from pressing global challenges, such as terrorism and China’s aggressive war moves.
A spokesman for the Anderson Air Force Base confirmed the authenticity of the email, telling the Free Beacon that the Air Force is shifting “to a narrative writing format for awards and performance reports.” The ban on “pronouns, age, race” and other written descriptors is “intended to eliminate any information that could identify the nominee’s name, gender, age, or race so that all members had a fair and equal chance at winning.”

The Biden Regime has weakened all branches of the US military.
Pentagon Chief Lloyd Austin defended his abusive, racist (against whites) and controversial trainings he and the Biden Regime implemented on the US military since last year.
Recall, Space Force unit commander Capt. Matthew Lohmeier was recently removed from his post for criticizing Marxism.
God help us.
