2 Don’t do anything outside of work that conflicts with your official duty and responsibilities. Report waste, fraud, abuse and corruption As a private citizen, obey all laws and pay your debts, including taxes. Practice Equal Opportunity as a way of life. Stay away from anything that even looks wrong or could damage the reputation of the government. References: Executive Orders and 12731; Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations; DoD Directive ; DoD R, Joint Ethics Regulation (JER) -- Policy on Extremist Organizations -- ATSB-BAF-D2 September, 1997 MEMORANDUM FOR ALL PERSONNEL SUBJECT: Extremist Group Activity 1. Reference: Thunderbolt Six Policy Letter No. 36-8, dated 26 August, All leaders are charged with being proactive in the fight against extremist group activity. This is because the activities of extremist organizations are inconsistent with the responsibilities of military service. Their actions are counter to the spirit and law of equal opportunity and the strides that have been made in recent years. That every person should live free from fear and pursue God-given rights under our Constitution is an ideal from which we will not retreat. 3. As defined, an extremist organization advocates the denial of civil rights to any group through violence or the threat of it. Active participation, including promoting membership in such an organization and/or expousing their views, either on or off duty, is inconsistent with good order and discipline. There will be adverse career consequences for anyone who would commit or encourage these wrongful acts. 4. The face of extremism changes from place to place and from time to time. We must be vigilant against extremist discrimination in its different forms: racism, sexism, ultranationalism and religious bigotry. The only “isms” that have a place in our military are patriotism and heroism. How we think and act now will determine what kind of Army we will serve in and what freedoms our children will enjoy.
