STARRS Vice President and Board of Directors Vice-Chair, Dr. Ron Scott interviewed Elaine Donnelly, from the Center for Military Readiness (CMR).
CMR’s mission is to advocate for and give a public voice to the concerns and opinions of service members who cannot speak out against the Pentagon’s political and social policies and how they are affecting morale, unit cohesion, military effectiveness and readiness.
As Elaine explains, “What policy makers are doing here is creating problems that men and women in the military don’t need.”
Besides discussing the mission and operations of CMR, they discuss how DEI, CRT, lowering standards to be “more inclusive,” and other social justice policies are affecting morale, recruiting, retention, unity, trust, unit effectiveness and readiness.
Additionally, they discuss how the military has been focusing on white supremacy and right-wing extremism since Jan 6, 2021, with no attention being given to left-wing extremists and other threats from “minorities” due to a fear of being seen as biased and racist.
