Department of Defense EO Policy
Promote an environment free from personal, social, or institutional barriers that prevent Service members from rising to the highest level of responsibility possible. Service members shall be evaluated only on individual merit, fitness, and capability. Unlawful discrimination against persons or groups based on race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, is contrary to good order and discipline and is counterproductive to combat readiness and mission accomplishment. Unlawful discrimination shall not be condoned. (DoDD 1350.2, the DoD Military EO Policy)

Air Force EO Policy
It is against Air Force policy for any Airman, military or civilian, to unlawfully discriminate against, harass, intimidate or threaten another Airman on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex (or in the case of civilian employees) age, disability, genetic information, and reprisal.
