Commander's Vision Statement

The USFK community is a safe, inclusive, and vigilant environment free of racial discrimination and bigotry.

Commanders and leaders at all levels must create environments which allow individuals to speak openly and candidly about these issues without fear of reprisal. Now is the time to have tough conversations

We remain committed to creating an environment free of discrimination, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect regardless of race, religion, color, sexual orientation, gender or national origin.

We must all work together to create a safe and inclusive environment that is free of racism, bigotry and hate, and everyone knows they matter and are valued members of our community.
