Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services (STARRS)


STARRS is made up of retired military members and patriots dedicated to ensure the greatest fighting force on the globe remains the U.S. military.

STARRS mission is to help educate our fellow Americans regarding the criticality of having a military that focuses solely on the essential readiness needed to fight and win our Nation’s wars.

Winning requires a military which provides equal opportunity and a meritocracy leadership system which rewards high standards, ethical character, teamwork, and selfless service to our Nation.

This mission accomplishment requires the elimination of DEI from the DoD by informing people about all ideologies, policies, agendas, and organizations that threaten a meritocracy based military.

What STARRS Accomplished in 2023 Because of You

History of STARRS

The genesis of our organization, Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services, Incorporated (STARRS, Inc.) began in July 2020, when Rod Bishop (USAFA ‘74), Dr. Ron Scott (USAFA ‘73), and a small group of interested individuals viewed a three minute United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) football team video promoting Black Lives Matter (BLM).

Specifically, the film was openly advocating a controversial and divisive political agenda, as heard in the film’s repeated phrase promoting “anti-Racism”, which is a primary component of Critical Race Theory (CRT).

Widely misunderstood, CRT is simply Marxism repackaged in new terms such as equity, and is ultimately an ideological tool used to divide.

Recognizing the seriousness of the development, the group approached the Academy leadership in an effort to remove the controversial video and to prevent the introduction of CRT into the academy’s curriculum.

The group raised their concerns with the then Academy Superintendent, the Athletic Director and Football Coach and although their concerns were dismissed, the group continued their discussions while a new incoming Academy Superintendent soon assumed command.

As months passed, the small group began to grow as word spread of their efforts and others began to realize that there was a concerted effort to teach and implement aspects of CRT in not just the military academies, but the US Armed Forces in general.

Over time, the group would grow to approximately 65 individuals, including 14 General Officers, service academy graduates, retired and active duty officers, and enlisted, and other concerned civilians.

After nine months, the group received some positive news. Under the direction of the new USAFA Superintendent, the Academy released a replacement film in conjunction with the Department of Defense mandated “extremism” down day. Although the new film still had aspects that many consider “woke” propaganda, the film was a dramatic improvement to the previous USAFA BLM video.

The group has been active since its original engagement and has approached the Academy regarding the introduction of a “diversity and inclusion” room on campus. A lack of balance in reading materials was highlighted and the Superintendent addressed the concern as a “balanced” assortment of additional reading materials was introduced.

The group began and continues informing and educating the Armed Forces, American people, and political class, as members have written multiple articles, participated in both live and taped interviews, while one member has published a book which is now on sale and in distribution, called “Irresistible Revolution.”

Besides educating the Academy on the perils of CRT, the group has attempted to inform several members of Congress, the sister Service Academies, the USAFA Board of Visitors, the USAFA Association of Graduates and a variety of other people and organizations.

The group of founders decided to create a non-profit corporation, which was established 26 April 2021 as, Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services, Incorporated (“STARRS”). We are a newly formed corporation (our application for 501(c)3 tax-exempt status has been approved).

Overall, the founders intend STARRS to become a dynamic and influential force to promote balance, unity, and adherence to the US Constitution and to prevent the politicization of the service academies and the Department of Defense.

We envision service academies and armed forces that shall always faithfully serve the American people while remaining apolitical, colorblind and unified.
