Faith & Liberty shared a story about “Andy” yesterday. Andy (not his real name) is an active-duty soldier who emailed the group concerned about what is taking place in the military.

Faith & Liberty said those who signed up to serve on Sept. 11, 2001 will be eligible for retirement with full benefits this fall.

However, Faith & Liberty said that President Joe Biden’s shot mandate is complicating matters.

“Career military soldiers are now being told they will be court-martialed and dishonorably discharged, thus forfeiting what they are entitled to receive unless they take the jab,” Faith & Liberty reports. ”

Andy said for 20 years they’ve missed birthdays, anniversaries and Christmases.

“We watched friends die in war. Many of us bled ourselves. After returning, we watched the mental toll take more of our friends through suicide,” he wrote. “We have spent 20 years loving our country and putting the lives of our fellow citizens above our own.”

Now, though, the Biden administration is forcing the soldiers to have an experimental drug injected into their bodies.

“The military members know about the 7-10 years of skipped safety protocols,” Faith & Liberty wrote. “They know, too, about the nearly unspeakable number of deaths and injuries these shots are causing worldwide. They know about the heart attacks after the jab. They did not sign up for this.

“Our military members may have signed up to risk their own lives in war, but they did not sign up to become Anthony Fauci’s human guinea pigs.”

Andy asked for prayer at the end of his letter for his comrades and for himself.

“That they would know the comfort I have in Christ, that their countrymen would think the best of them in these confusing times,” he wrote.
