West Point Goes Woke: Deletes ‘Duty, Honor, Country’ From Mission Statement

The wokeness virus has officially corrupted West Point. On Monday, the military institution announced that it removed the words “Duty, Honor, Country” from its mission statement in exchange for the generic term “Army values.”

In a news release, West Point Superintendent Army Lt. Gen. Steve Gilland revealed the decision. He stressed that “Duty, Honor, Country” will continue to be the motto.

The old mission statement read: “To educate, train and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country and prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the nation as an officer in the United States Army.”

Now, it has been updated to the following: “To build, educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets to be commissioned leaders of character committed to the Army Values and ready for a lifetime of professional excellence and service to the Army and Nation.”

Gilland, potentially expecting backlash, stated that the mission statement has changed nine times in the past 100 years and added that Duty, Honor and Country were added in 1998.

“Duty, Honor, Country is foundational to the United States Military Academy’s culture and will always remain our motto,” he wrote. “It defines who we are as an institution and as graduates of West Point.”

The change in the mission statement caused a lot of criticism. Conservative radio host Jeff Kuhner said that the institution had gone woke.

Fox network’s “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy wrote on X that West Point had gone “full globalist.

Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) wrote that with everything going on in America it needs to wake up.

The change even caught the attention of Evangelist and missionary Franklin Graham who called the deletion of “Duty, Honor, Country” an attempt by leftists to weaken the military.

According to Gilland, the mission statement change was approved by Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth and Army Chief of Staff Randy George.

While the left-wing media makes fun of conservatives for making a big deal about the change, they fail to realize how important those words are to so many who take pride in their country. With military enrollment being at an all-time low, it’s highly unlikely that omitting “Duty, Honor, Country” will help.
