    Default AFI regarding "offensive language" use.

    Anybody know where I might find some guidance on this? There's an NCO who says that using the phrase "God damn" or "God damn it" and the like will not be used because people might get offended. He also said that it's a lawful order while giving no actual AFI saying he was in his legal right to do so.

    Im not sure if it's directly in an AFI, but your local MEO office would be the one to contact.

    Probably not against an actual AFI, just not very professional. I myself am not always very professional and cuss too much in the office.

    only reference I found is a PA AFI that says it is not authorized in messaging and 36-2903 that says you can't wear clothing with it on it.

    I though the little brown book used to say something about it, but I didn't find anythign there.
    "If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep the street so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. "

    I find clapping during the Air Force song offensive and degrading to our history. But, it still happens.

    Anyone know an AFI stating proper behavior while the Air Force song is played/sung? I was always taught to stand at attention. But, the AFGSC yahoos at my last base clapped and made it feel like we were singing at a hoe-down.
