Many thousands of US servicemembers were injured by Joe Biden’s illegal COVID vaccine mandates in 2021 and 2022. A Turning Point USA Ambassador named Rogan O’Handley has learned that the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) is now denying disability claims to soldiers and sailors who were discharged because of their vaccine injuries.
They got kicked out of the military after the shot mandates injured them, and now Biden won’t allow the VA to pay benefits to them. Six Republican Senators have launched an inquiry to try to help these veterans who were hurt by Joe Biden’s mandates.
The six Republican Senators are Marco Rubio (FL), Ted Cruz (TX), Steve Daines (MT), Tom Cotton (AR), Rick Scott (FL) and Mike Braun (IN). This all started when O’Handley, who goes by the handle @DC_Draino on Twitter/X, met a 24-year-old Navy veteran at the gym and posted about the encounter online.
The young sailor didn’t want to take the COVID shot when he was serving in the Navy. When it finally became clear that he would be kicked out if he refused the shot, he submitted. He took the Moderna vaccine to comply with Biden’s illegal mandate. He immediately developed myocarditis.
Despite the CDC’s constant lies that myocarditis from the shots is “rare and mild,” the young sailor’s heart was damaged so badly that he was discharged. When he applied for disability benefits from the VA, his claim was rejected on the grounds that the myocarditis was “not service-related.”
How is that not service-related? He was told to either take the shot or lose his career. He never would have taken the shot in the first place, if he was not coerced into it.
O’Handley wrote about the incident on Twitter/X:
“This is the most heartbreaking and infuriating story I’ve heard in a long time. Not only have thousands of soldiers been severely injured by Biden’s unnecessary vax mandates, but now the VA is playing games with their livelihoods.
“Seeing the heartbreak in this guy’s eyes changed me. I’ll make this a core issue going into 2024 and beyond. We can’t un-inject these brave Americans, but we can certainly pay them for their injuries acquired against their will in service of our country.”
Someone from Sen. Marco Rubio’s staff saw the story on Twitter and reached out to O’Handley. He put the staffers in touch with the young veteran and they took it from there. The Senators have confirmed that the story is true. The VA is denying disability claims from soldiers and sailors whose careers have been ended by vaccine injuries.
The Senators are now demanding answers from the VA about four specific questions:
What is the VA’s process for considering COVID-19 vaccine injuries for disability claims?
Does the VA consider COVID-19 vaccine injuries as service-related if the servicemember received the vaccine during service?
Has the VA investigated the health effects of COVID-19 vaccine injuries?
What resources does the VA provide servicemembers who are concerned that a COVID-19 vaccination led to their injury?
Back in March of 2022, we reported on the data that a whistleblower leaked from the military’s Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), which covered the first six months of Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate. Hundreds of thousands of servicemembers developed “nervous system diseases” in that six-month period, which ranged from mild to career-ending.
Testicular, breast, stomach, and thyroid cancers all increased by hundreds of percentage points over the five-year average. Nearly 20,000 servicemembers were sexually sterilized after they received the COVID shots. As we wrote at the time:
“11,748 women and 8,365 men became sterile after Joe Biden forced them to take these experimental shots. That’s 20,113 people who volunteered to serve their country, who will never be able to have children now. Another 4,086 female servicemembers now have ovarian dysfunction, so they may or may not be able to have children.”
Hopefully the Senate inquiry will lead to some serious changes in how the VA and the Biden regime are treating vaccine-injured servicemembers. It’s outrageous that they were forced to take these shots, and now the same government that forced them to take them denies any responsibility. But of course, Joe Biden will never admit that the shots were dangerous. That would mean that he’s liable for every injury that resulted from his mandates.
