America’s most senior military leaders denounced the violent invasion of the US Capitol and reminded service members of their commitment to support and protect the Constitution and oppose extremism in a statement that highlighted the country’s unparalleled challenges following the January 6 uprising attempt by supporters of President Donald Trump.
