 The Air Force Academy is considering dropping or changing its honor oath to promote inclusion for all its cadets. 

The oath reads as follows

We will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does.  Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, so help me God.

It's the last three words are now under review after a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. 

A committee discussed the wording and among other options were making no change, making "so help me God" optional or striking the entire oath. 

No word on when a decision will be handed down.
