When President Biden declared on “60 Minutes” last week, “The pandemic is over,” he made more of an observation than a declaration. The vast majority of Americans left COVID fear and restrictions behind long ago and have gone back to living their lives in much the same way as they did before 2020.

Yet not everyone has been able to move on. On September 23, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, allegedly discharged seven cadets after denying their requests for religious exemptions to the military’s COVID vaccine mandate. Now, two highly-decorated retired admirals are demanding to know why.

All between the ages of 18 and 22, the cadets say when their religious exemption appeals were denied on August 18, they were told they must leave campus in less than 24 hours or face being escorted off the grounds by guards. This forced two, who did not have homes to which they could return, to respectively live out of a car and find refuge with another cadet’s family...

United States Coast Guard Academy

In a disgusting tyrannical move, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy has banished 7 cadets from the grounds for being unvaccinated, even though multiple lawsuits have stopped other services from continuing to impose the vaccine mandates.

Below is a press release from, a group of service academy graduates.

U.S. Coast Guard Academy Jettisons Unvaccinated Cadets

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – 08/25/2022 — STARRS has learned that seven cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) were banished from the grounds recently and given 24 hours to “get out” for failure to comply with what is likely an illegal order to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.  

Three separate courts have imposed service-wide injunctions stopping adverse actions against members of the Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps who have sincerely held religious objections to the Covid 19 vax.

 A request for a similar injunction regarding Coast Guard personnel is being reviewed.  “What’s the rush?  The cadets pose no danger to others,” said Ron Scott, USAF-Ret (Col.), STARRS President.   Multiple press reports indicate there are several hundred thousand in the military who have yet to be vaccinated with zero evidence of any harm to readiness or danger to others who serve. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has now acknowledged the experimental vaccine does not prevent the acquisition or spread of infection.  Major concerns about its present and future adverse side-effects are being ignored.  “This raises profound questions regarding the legality of the Covid-19 vaccine mandate,” Scott said.  Among the most compelling concerns are the lack of proper informed consent, blanket denial of legitimate religious exemptions, and the legal distinction between the Emergency Use Only vaccine in use and the FDA approved Comirnaty product, Scott noted. 

All branches of the armed forces are experiencing a recruiting crisis. “It is nonsensical to dismiss seven highly qualified USCGA cadets, who have expressed a fervent desire to serve their country,” said Scott. “When will politicians and military leaders have the courage to put an end to this tyrannical mistreatment of citizens?”  

STARRS is raising funds for the legal defense of those whose lives, careers and honor are under attack by the nation that they have sacrificed to serve.
