Florida Rep. Mike Waltz (R), an Army Green Beret, is chairing a think tank panel to combat wokeness within the ranks —it’s time to focus on winning and not wokeness, Waltz says. He also aims to tackle the recruitment crisis.
From Breitbart News:
The panel, hosted by the Heritage Foundation, will take a deep look at how to refocus the military on winning wars versus initiatives aimed at diversity, equity, and inclusion — many of which were begun under the Obama administration and have been redoubled under the Biden administration.
Waltz, an Army National Guard colonel slated to become the chairman of the House Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee, spoke to Breitbart News. “This is about a warrior culture that we need to maintain — one that is focused on winning our nation’s wars. And I think the big theme that you’ll hear from me and from this panel is it’s about standards — not gender or race, or socioeconomic background,” he said.
“It’s about what the nation needs to fight and win our wars and to deter our adversaries from even entering any type of conflict in the first place, and from military academies to basic training, to all the way through the military culture. That’s what we need to get back to, and what we need to be focused on,” Waltz says.
