But increasingly, American military men and women are being exposed less to the art of war fighting and combat and more to the left-wing "woke" culture of critical race theory, sexual assault training and inadequate instruction on basic and advanced skills — and nowhere is that more prevalent than in the U.S. Navy, according to a new report.
Called "A Report on the Fighting Culture of the United States Navy Surface Fleet," commissioned by GOP members of Congress, the report was written by retired Marine Corps. Lt. Gen. Robert E. Schmidle and retired Navy Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery.
Their findings were based on long-form interviews with "numerous active-duty and recently retired or detached officers and enlisted personnel" to get their opinions regarding the battle-readiness of the Navy's various surface fleets. In all, 77 personnel were interviewed.
