As Hurricane Ian swept through Florida, as with most natural disasters affecting our communities, American heroism often shines through. This heroism often comes from service members, and in the case of hurricane relief and relief, you can always count on the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard to step up.
This latest storm is no exception, with various stories of heroism, including aviation survival technician 2nd class Zach Loesch. at one pointhe saved an elderly disabled woman from drowning by kicking her door down to bring her to safety.
As if that wasn’t enough, he grabbed her wheelchair seriously, strapped it to him, and was airlifted to safety. That’s just one of the many reasons Mr. Roche has been praised by President Biden himself.
Still, there’s just one problem: Loesch will be involuntarily fired from the Coast Guard.
Joe Biden himself said it – COVID is over.
Yet he is still firing brave men and women who have served our country, such as Coast Guard rescue swimmer Zach Losch.
Zach kicks through a wall to save an elderly couple trapped by Hurricane Ian.

In a White House press release last Friday, Announce The President has spoken with Loesch and another Coast Guard officer involved in the rescue to personally thank them for their heroic efforts to respond to Hurricane Ian.
More specifically, President Biden tell reporters Regarding his conversation with Loesch, “I told him how proud I was of him and thanked him and his Coasties for all the work they did to save lives.”
You would think that we want to preserve our commitment to service and fellow citizens. Unfortunately, we will lose many people like Loesch due to the mandate of the military COVID-19 vaccine. In the next month or so, he will be withdrawn from the army for refusing to be vaccinated.
I read that Biden just called a Coast Guard rescue swimmer to thank him for saving a life, but the hero will soon lose his job due to Biden’s Covid vaccine mission. Don’t be insensitive to the horrific discrimination that still takes place in the name of science.

Like many others in uniform, Losch applied for a religious arrangement for the vaccine, but his appeal was denied. Currently2,632 Coast Guard members refused to comply with the mandate.
Last month, 1,200 service workers file a lawsuit Opposes the Coast Guard, accusing the service of “flatly denying almost all” requests for religious accommodation. to dateof 881 Coast Guard members who declined religious accommodation requests, only 1% were granted.
Approved are those members who are already pending separation or retirement. To put it bluntly, only those members who already have a pending discharge date will be approved.
Sound familiar? it should.as just reported a few weeks ago, Other military branches have had to lift some restrictions on COVID vaccines pending lawsuits and similar charges.
Our military is having its worst draft year ever, in part because @SecDefmilitary COVID vaccine mission.
Although this mission obviously compromises military readiness, it still works.

In June, Pentagon Inspector General Sean O’Donnell, in a memo to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, statement “We found a trend toward generalized assessments rather than individualized assessments,” not only required by federal law, but also by the Pentagon’s own policy.
“Assuming a 10-hour day with no breaks or other concerns, the average review time per package is about 12 minutes,” the memo tip go out.
It’s hard to believe that 12 minutes is enough to accurately assess everyone’s requirements. The reality is that those reviewing these packages may indeed take breaks and take on other obligations, meaning they spend less time reviewing each case.Given the mathematical assumptions, IG said they Estimate approximately All branches have 50 rejections per day.
Lieutenant Junior Alaric Stone, one of the litigants in the lawsuit against the Coast Guard, Say That”I found myself in a situation where I was forced to choose between faith and service to my country. It’s heartbreaking. “
“If I asked anyone I saved yesterday, even if I wasn’t vaccinated, if they would come with me, every one of them would say yes,” Say Rosch.
I personally have no doubts about that. But, to be fair, members of the military are required to vaccinate heavily against various diseases, all in the name of combat readiness.
I’ve been stuck on something I can’t count. However, the religious accommodation application process for this particularly controversial vaccine does appear to run counter to those applying.
With draft numbers at an all-time low, you’d think we’re looking for ways to keep our best and brightest and not release them through a vaccine – especially given all the international challenges we face and domestic challenges like tropical storms .
Nor can I imagine a higher honor than receiving a call from the Commander-in-Chief himself to thank you for your gallantry and service.
What a monumental career and life moment that you will tell your grandkids when the time comes.However, as Mr. Loesch explain, “It’s so bad that he thanked me, but the mandate for the vaccine kicked me out.”
You are absolutely right on this point; it really sucks.
Zach Loesch is one of 2,600 Coasters who will be kicked out for the vaccine despite being sent to help stranded Floridians.
I promise not a single Floridian cares about his vaccine status when he takes them out of his flooded home. Biden’s term must end! pic.twitter.com/tRcREyTQLc
