UCLA AIR FORCE ROTC Detachment 055 12 Mar 10 MEMORANDUM FOR AFROTC DET 055/CC FROM: 055 AFROTC CW/XX SUBJECT: Servicemen Free Speech 1. Military members are required to remain silent on matters of policy when speaking to the public. There are arguments suggesting why this requirement is detrimental to democracy, but it is crucial to military mission success. The attached position paper discusses the various issues pertaining to the free speech rights of military personnel. 2. The arguments against the censorship policy center around how it is an undemocratic practice that forces military members to stay silent on matters that directly affect them. For, instance, military members are not allowed to make statements against a policy to the public that they may disagree with, a policy that could, in turn, get them killed. Given that freedom of speech is fundamental enough to our democracy to be made our First Amendment, some argue that it is counter-democratic to silence military members.

Unformatted text preview: 3. The arguments for the restriction on freedom of speech center on its importance for the correct functioning of the military system.

The current policy ensures that military members are able to focus on the mission at hand and not the politics of the conflict, therefore able to fight effectively preserving our nation. 4. The current policy reflects the best interests of our nation. As it is, the policy helps reduces casualties and ensure the military functions the best it possibly can. 5.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
