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.

Command Cafe

  • What are we watching?


    A documentary that looks at transgender depictions on the screen showing how Hollywood reflects and manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender. Leading trans thinkers trace a history that is both dehumanizing, yet also evolving and complex through some of Hollywood's most beloved moments on the screen. What emerges is a fascinating interplay between trans representation on screen, society's beliefs and the reality of trans lives.

  • What are we listening to?


    The LGBTQ+ experience is more than just a rainbow flag, it's a movement. The PRIDE podcast hosted by Levi Chambers celebrates every person under the queer umbrella with skillful journalism and engaging interviews.

    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

    By Benjamin Alire Sáenz


    Aristotle is an angry teen. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship that changes the lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves.
