The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA or Air Force) is an accredited college for the undergraduate education of officer candidates for the United States Air Force. Its campus is located immediately north of Colorado Springs in El Paso County, Colorado, United States. The Academy's stated mission is "to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation." It is the youngest of the five United States service academies, having graduated its first class in 1959. Graduates of the Academy's four-year program receive a Bachelor of Science degree, and most are commissioned as second lieutenants in the United States Air Force. The Academy is also one of the largest tourist attractions in Colorado, attracting more than a million visitors each year. - Source: Wikipedia
The senators also cited a report from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which has challenged the Air Force Academy over spiritual practices it claims illegally promote Christianity.
A spokeswoman for Rep. Doug Lamborn, the Colorado Republican whose district includes the Air Force Academy’s campus, said they'll introduce the bill in the House on Friday.
