WASHINGTON, DC – On January 1, 2024, a group of 231 active military and veterans from all branches of the military signed an open letter to the American People, establishing clear parallels to our founding document, the Declaration of Independence. They accuse military leaders of harming military service members’ physical health and morale by forcing experimental COVID-19 “vaccines” upon them and promoting moral decay within the military.
The letter accuses the Joint Chiefs of Staff members General Milley, Admiral Grady, General McConville, and many other military leaders of “enabl[ing] lawlessness and the unwilling experimentation on service members. The moral and physical injuries they helped inflict are significant… Their actions caused irreparable harm to the Armed Forces and the institutions for which we have fought and bled,” said the authors of the letter.
The signatories claim to represent “hundreds of thousands of service members and the American People, while appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for guidance and purity of intention.” Further, they “mutually pledge to each other that we will do everything in our power, through lawful word and action, to hold accountable military leaders who failed to follow the law when their leadership and moral courage was most desperately needed.”
The letter opens with a statement that clearly hearkens to the Declaration of Independence: “In the course of human events it sometimes becomes necessary to admonish the lawless, encourage the fainthearted, and strengthen the weak. We have reached just such a time in our history. The affairs of our nation are now steeped in avaricious corruption and our once stalwart institutions, including the Dept of Defense, are failing to fulfill the moral obligations upon which they were founded. Standing upon our natural and constitutional rights, we hereby apprise the American people that we have exhausted all internal efforts to rectify recent criminal activity within the Armed Forces.”
The authors then distinguish their efforts from the Declaration of Independence in that they are seeking accountability instead of separation and independence. They wrote, “In the Declaration of Independence, our founding fathers sought separation. We seek no separation, but … we pursue restoration through accountability.”
The letter relates the problems the authors see in the military to other political problems in this country and blames the problems fundamentally on moral degradation. The authors wrote, “Our nation was once great because it was good. It was built on moral principles founded in natural law and yet, the recent acceleration of moral relativism has us headed towards a precipitous implosion.”
The signatories insist that they will not allow what they describe as the fall of this nation without a fight, “we refuse to allow our nation to go quietly into the depths of decadence and decay. We promise to exhaust all moral, ethical, and legal means to restore the rule of law and will begin by attempting to hold senior military leaders accountable.”
“The Constitution is the supreme law of our land. We will fight to enforce that law and put an end to the two-tiered justice system. May future generations see our efforts and, God willing, may they also be recipients of the great gift of liberty that we have had the honor of safeguarding.”
The second signer of the letter is Mark Bashaw, former First Lieutenant of the US Air Force. After 16 years in service, including 10 years deployed overseas, he was relieved of duty for refusing the experimental COVID-19 “vaccine.” He has filed multiple public affidavits as a whistle blower that can be viewed at freedomfighter1776.com/dma-accountability. On November 20, 2023, he filed a criminal complaint against Major General Robert L. Edmonson II.
The complete letter can be viewed in its entirety on militaryaccountability.com and can be signed by US citizens, active military, and veterans. Tuesday, just 6 hours after the website was posted, the letter had well over 4000 signatures, and by 11:30am (January 3rd) today the letter had nearly 8,000 signatures. The letter has been seen nearly three million times on X, formerly Twitter.
Brad Miller, the lead signer, and a veteran who served 19 years in the Army, said on a public recording on X, “We hope to get millions of signatures on this petition.”
