Over 230 [Update: the number has risen to 10,000+ ] active duty service members and veterans have signed onto an open letter to the American people calling for military leaders to be held accountable for illegally forcing the COVID-19 injections on unwilling service members during the pandemic.
The signatories—who include both enlisted ranks and commissioned officers from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines—accuse former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley and others of enabling “lawlessness and the unwilling experimentation on service members,” leading to significant “moral and physical injuries,” including death.
In their letter, they state that they “have exhausted all internal efforts to rectify recent criminal activity within the Armed Forces” and promise that they will take legal steps to stop the ongoing destruction of the military.
The Department of Defense (DoD), according to the signatories, has failed “to fulfill the moral obligations upon which they were founded.”
“While implementing the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, military leaders broke the law, trampled constitutional rights, denied informed consent, permitted unwilling medical experimentation, and suppressed the free exercise of religion,” the service members stated.
Service members and families were significantly harmed by these actions. Their suffering continues to be felt financially, emotionally, and physically. Some service members became part of our ever-growing veteran homeless population, some developed debilitating vaccine injuries, and some even lost their lives. In an apparent attempt to avoid accountability, military leaders are continuing to ignore our communications regarding these injuries and the laws that were broken.
The letter named names of the top brass whose “actions caused irreparable harm to the Armed Forces.”
For GEN Milley, ADM Grady, GEN McConville, ADM Gilday, ADM Lescher, Gen Brown, Gen Berger, Gen Smith, VADM Kilby, VADM Nowell, VADM Fuller, LTG Martin, Lt Gen Davis, MG Edmonson, GEN Williams, ADM Fagan, VADM Buck, Lt Gen Clark, MG Francis, LTG Dingle, Lt Gen Miller, RADM Gillingham, and numerous others;
These individuals enabled lawlessness and the unwilling experimentation on service members. The moral and physical injuries they helped inflict are significant. They betrayed the trust of service members and the American people.
These leaders refused to resign or take any other action to hold themselves accountable, nor have they attempted to repair the harm their policies and actions have caused. Since there has yet to be any accountability, the undersigned give our word to do everything morally permissible and legally possible to hold our own leadership accountable. We intend to rebuild trust by demonstrating that leaders cannot cast aside constitutional rights or the law for political expediency.
The signatories went on to note that “a significant number” of civil service leaders and political appointees also contributed to the “illegal activities,” but as service members and veterans, they felt “particularly responsible for the DoD.”
We the undersigned, on behalf of 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, 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.
In the coming years, thousands within our network will run for Congress and seek appointments to executive branch offices, while those of us still serving on active duty will continue to put fulfilling our oaths ahead of striving for rank or position. For those who achieve the lawful authority to do so, we pledge to recall from retirement the military leaders who broke the law and will convene courts-martial for the crimes they committed. For those of us who attain legislative offices, we pledge to introduce legislation to remove all retirement income for the military leaders who were criminally complicit, and we will ensure none serve in or retire from the Senior Executive Service.
This endeavor will be a continuous process with a long-term time horizon, but fulfilling our oaths to defend the Constitution requires just such persistent vigilance. Likewise, we are obligated, and so commit, to train those who come after us to fulfill their duty in achieving this accountability and safeguarding against such leadership failures hereafter.
The signatories warned that the “once great” United States is headed toward “a precipitous implosion” due to the “acceleration of moral relativism.”
“While all good things come to an end, we refuse to allow our nation to go quietly into the depths of decadence and decay,” they declared. “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.”
In conclusion, the service members and vets vowed to “fight to enforce that law and put an end to the two-tiered justice system” in hopes that “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.”

Thus far, the Department of Defense and the military leaders called out by name have not reacted to the missive, which was posted on New Year’s Day.
At 4am EST today (a few min ago), senior military leaders received an email with a letter attached called the Declaration of Military Accountability. I know because I sent the email. I sent it on behalf of myself & 230 other signatories of the letter. The letter is not addressed… pic.twitter.com/jFkF3FmcA8

Here’s the story: The day after Pfizer had an approved product but never shipped, SECDEF Austin ordered all persons to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus by either taking the mandatory licensed drug or the voluntary investigational drug. However, the licensed drug never shipped, leaving only the drug that could only come under voluntary conditions. These two drugs have very different laws attached to their classification.
Then, despite Lt. Gen Price, Director of the DoD Health Defense Agency, informing the entire DoD that service members could reject the EUA drug without consequence, hundreds of officers chose to ignore service members lawful authority and engaged in felonies by usurping the authority of the commander in chief by waiving the informed consent rights of their subordinates and demanding they involuntarily inject the experimental drugs into their bodies or face legal punishment. Now, not ONE officer pushed for a court-martial when punishing a member refusing the investigational drug, only through administrative board punishments because they feared the truth that a court martial would reveal, and that was the officer committed a crime, not the subordinate exercising their lawful right to refuse. These officers defied their oath and denied their subordinates’ equal protection of laws and due process rights by refusing to comply with the chain of command and to respect the authority of Congress to establish the laws and the President’s authority to waive informed consent, WHICH HE NEVER WAIVED.
These facts should horrify America to know that hundreds of officers within the military no longer honor their oath and respect the chain of command, nor are they punished when violating military or civilian law. The greatest threat to our nation is now from our own military due to Senior Pentagon Leadership refusing to fulfill the duties of their office, which is a felony in and of itself. It took a vaccine mandate relying exclusively on investigational new drugs to demonstrate how corrupt the Senior Pentagon Leadership has become.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) participated in a three-hour long X-Space Monday night that hosted by the authors of the letter and signatories.

“Many of you see the role I play in trying to ask tough questions and ripen these issues and build coalitions of lawmakers to make more strident demands and definitely direction,” said Gaetz, who sits on the Armed Services Committee. “What this country did to our best patriots with the jab will make us weaker for a long time unless we make things right,” Gaetz said.
“We’re getting more progress, we educate people, but what was so impactful about this letter today is that it opens up more of the bottom up and the veteran outside in review and fair criticism of these decisions,” he added. “I think we should get other policymakers to embrace the themes you’ve laid out.”
Retired United States Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn wrote on X that the letter is “a very big deal and all Flag officers (active & retired) need to pay heed to it.”
This is not another letter signed by a bunch of generals and admirals (or senior intel officials), this is penned and signed by members of our military’s rank and file.
This is a very serious warning to the American people and we better pay attention.
These aren’t democrats and republicans here, these are people who took an oath to serve the nation and potentially give their lives in service to the same.
They all need to be thanked for their courage to speak out during these very challenging times facing America.
God help us all.
The authors posted a link on Tuesday to their Declaration of Military Accountability website to allow more current and former service members to sign on, but as of Tuesday afternoon, the link was not working.
Joshua Hoppe, an active duty Marine Pilot, and one of the signatories of the letter, said the website is experiencing high traffic and cyberattacks.
“The traffic and cyberattacks on the site has been high today,” Hoppe wrote on X. “If it’s down for when you try to sign as it is now, just come back later and try again. It should be back up in an hour.”
Two of the letter’s authors, former Army officer Brad Miller and former Green Beret John Frankman appeared on Newmax Tuesday to discuss the letter.
