"Harassment, whether it's for race or for gender, is just not going to make us better. If you cannot convince me that it makes us more lethal, as a fighting team, then you will not do it; and if you absolutely insist on doing it, you will be removed from the team. You will not serve in the Arizona National Guard if you cannot treat one another with the proper dignity and respect.“

INDIVIDUAL DIGNITY IS KEY TO MISSION SUCCESS!

MILITARY EO FOSTERS THE ENVIRONMENT FOR TOTAL FORCE READINESS.

Our recognition and respect of one another’s individual human dignity sustain this environment. Readiness leads to mission success. To foster an environment for total force readiness Military EO educates, trains, surveys, and when necessary, intervenes in defense of individual dignity.

 

MERIT, FITNESS, AND CAPABILITY MUST BE THE SOLE BASIS FOR CAREER SUCCESS.

EO helps commanders successfully accomplish the Air Force mission, continuously. In the absence of personal, social, or institutional barriers, commanders may develop, train, and sustain the best mission-ready force. This is done when personnel assignments and promotions are based solely on:

MERIT – FITNESS  - CAPABILITY
