The U.S. military could owe billions in back pay and legal fees depending on the outcome of three class-action lawsuits filed on behalf of service members who allege they were wrongfully discharged for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
'We must keep our promise to support our service members, including ensuring those who come to the VA for help with COVID-19 vaccine injuries are justly compensated and receive the care that they deserve,' a letter to Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough states.
'We are more vulnerable than we have been in many years and our near-peer adversaries are preparing to take us on,' yet 'the Pentagon has cast more obfuscation in an attempt to blame anything but themselves,' U.S. Navy Commander Robert A. Green Jr. warns.
'This policy, this COVID policy, reduced our fighting capacity by double, triple, quadruple what the Taliban took out,' a litigant in the lawsuit told LifeSiteNews. 'It's friendly fire through policy.'
'These brave men and women are leading the way to standing up for our Constitution and the Rule of Law which have been badly battered in the past three years,' attorney Catherine Christensen, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiffs, told LifeSiteNews.
