The U.S. Air Force Academy may drop a religious reference from an oath cadets take to swear allegiance to the school's honor code.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has protested the "so help me God" phrase that was added to the end of an oath that has cadets swearing they won't lie, cheat, steal or tolerate those who do.
The religious freedom foundation reportedly said tying the honor code to a religious test violates the U.S. Constitution.
