Medical Incidents among Military Pilots Soar by 1,700%

The number of medical incidents being reported among U.S. military pilots soared more than 1,700% from 2019 to 2022.

In January, an Army flight surgeon posted data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database on Twitter showing that the number of medical incidents among military pilots rose from 226 a year between 2016 and 2019 to 4,059 in 2022 alone.

However, the Pentagon said a large number of positive COVID-19 cases was the reason behind the surge in reported medical events among pilots.

The flight surgeon, Lt. Col. Theresa Long, who testified against the vaccine mandate, said the vaccine carries the risk of severe side effects.

In a tweet, Long said she scoured the database for all reportable medical events involving military pilots in the wake of the FAA’s announcement it was easing some requirements for pilots regarding their cardiac health.

Long asserts the FAA’s policy change has related to an increase in patients with heart damage due to the vaccines.

However, the Defense Department disregarded Long’s claims, asserting the increase in adverse events among military pilots was due to COVID-19, not the vaccine.

Defense Health Agency spokesman Peter Graves told Military.com that Long mischaracterized the data, accusing her of defining the medical events as those causing “death, permanent harm or severe temporary harm.”

However, he said the Pentagon requires potential threats to the population, the chance of widespread transmission, or illnesses that cause disruption also be reported.

“The increased numbers of reportable events in 2020, 2021, and 2022 are due to the reporting of COVID-19 cases,” Graves said.

Graves argued that 96% of the 4,059 reportable events among pilots were related to COVID-19, adding the disease accounted for 88% of all reportable events.

More than 2 million military service members were vaccinated against the illness, with more than 8,400 being discharged after they refused to follow the vaccine order.

According to various studies, there is a risk of myocarditis and pericarditis following COVID-19 vaccination.

Research published in the journal JAMA Cardiology in 222 found 1,077 incidents of myocarditis and 1,149 incidents of pericarditis out of the 23.1 million people in four Nordic countries who took the vaccine.

Military.com noted several service members were diagnosed with heart inflammation following the military vaccination effort.

Health problems among pilots have become common in other areas of aviation, including commercial.

Last September, an Ikar Airlines pilot died during a flight between Novokuznetsk to St Petersburg in Russia after reportedly feeling sick during the flight, prompting an emergency landing.

In June, a British flight instructor suffered a heart attack and died during an instruction safety fight. The autopsy revealed the pilot suffered an acute cardiac failure.

Just this week, a United Airlines was diverted after the pilot reported suffering “chest pains” mid-flight.

The Airline faced controversy in 2022 after over 2,000 employees filed a class-action lawsuit over unconstitutional vaccine mandates.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
