The Air Force Academy could remove the words 'so help me God' from its honor oath, according to the Air Force Times.

The "Freedom from Religion" foundation says forcing all cadets to swear an oath to God violates the constitution.

The phrase has been part of the honor code since the school was founded in the 50s. However, the school only started requiring students to swear an honor code oath after 1984, when19 seniors were caught cheating on an exam.
