Air Force 3-star ripped for presentation referencing God

Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins


By Published: February 17, 2012

Air Force Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins, the new head of the Defense Information Systems Agency, is under fire for a commander’s call Wednesday that included references to God, the Air Force Times reported. Hawkins said his presentation has been taken out of context.

The Air Force Times posted a photo of slides titled "Ronnie's Rules" that Hawkins purportedly showed during an all-hands meeting. The first listed rule is "Always put God first, and stay within his will."

Hawkins told the Times that the sentiments were his personal guidelines for living and not intended to be taken as directives for airmen under his command.

Nearly two dozen DISA employees complained to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which is calling for Hawkins to be court-martialed for violating his oath to the Constitution, according to the Times.
