U.S. Rep. Greg Steube Introduces House Resolution to Restore the United States Military’s Superior Warfighting Principles

WASHINGTON —  U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) on Friday introduced a House Resolution to restore the United States military’s superior warfighting principles of recruiting, assigning, training, promoting, and retaining personnel solely based on merit. The resolution also credits the Florida State Senate for first passing the Florida Senate Memorial SM 1382, introduced by State Senator Jay Collins, to restore our military’s warfighting principles.   

“The United States of America is known around the world to have superior warfighting principles, but under the Biden Administration, the Department of Defense has engaged in practices to erode those principles,” said Rep. Steube. “The U.S. military should be focused on unit effectiveness and mission accomplishment, yet primary determinents of how the military forces should be comprised now include overemphasizing gender, gender identity, race, and sexual preference. These decisions, and others, have led U.S. military dominance to be called into serious question. It’s time Congress recognizes that restoring a merit-based system in our military is the only way to ensure the safety and security of the American people.” 

Last month, Rep. Steube  introduced The Eliminate DEI in the Military Act to prohibit federal funding from being used for any diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) activity in the armed forces, service academies, or at the Department of Defense.
