Interviewed on Veteran's Day by the Think Progress website he said: 'Personally I don't trust one Muslim in our military because they're commanded to lie to us.
'And if they really are a devout Muslim and follow the Koran and the and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they're commanded to kill me.'
Mr Womick was attending the 'Preserving Freedom Conference hosted by the controversial group, the Sharia Awareness Action Network.
Asked if he felt that serving Muslims should be 'forced out' he replied: 'Absolutely yes.'
He later reasserted his opinions in an interview with the Murfreesboro Daily News adding: 'Who are we at war with?
'We are at war with al-Qaeda and the Taliban, who are Muslims. It's a Catch-22. They are not allowed to kill their fellow Muslims, we're at war with Muslims.
'The only solution I see is that they not be allowed in the military.'
Womick, a Baptist and member of the National Rifle Association, served as a pilot in the Air Firce during the first Gulf War.
