I am a retired AF LtCol and my son is a current (class year withheld) Cadet at the AF Academy. My son requested a Religious Exemption for the COVID vaccine and was denied that exemption by the leadership of the Air Force Academy. He was on the fence of what to do next and needed to decide by Friday, January 7, 2022. I reached out to Mikey and he responded immediately. He quickly advised me on what my son should do and then offered for my son to call him back. He then consulted with him on his options and possible consequences of either decision he would make. In addition he also provided a critically impactful call from a special MRFF asset, a retired General in Colorado Springs, to my son to also discuss his options. Within 6 hrs, I had 5 calls from Mikey and 1 from the retired General. It is so great to have a resource like him and the MRFF staff that will support our Cadets, other military members and their parents and family when they’re dealing with life changing decisions and consequences in a challenging place where there seems to be no choices. We have a great resource in the military with someone like Mikey Weinstein and the MRFF on our side. If your Cadet or Military member is dealing with any kind of persecution of their religious rights or freedoms call Mikey he and the MRFF will be your savior.

    MRFF’s RESPONSE TO THE DETRACTOR’s COMMENT BELOW:

    CHARITY NAVIGATOR RATES MRFF WITH A 100% PASSING “GIVE WITH CONFIDENCE” GRADE ON ITS FINANCES AND ACCOUNTABILITY. CHARITY NAVIGATOR IS THE LARGEST AND MOST-UTILIZED EVALUATOR OF CHARITIES IN THE UNITED STATES.

    “During the past decade, Military Religious Freedom Foundation founder and president Mikey Weinstein has been a vocal advocate for the separation of church and state in the military.

    But according to an Air Force Times examination of MRFF tax filings, what Weinstein pays himself for running MRFF is well more than the typical top salaries at most nonprofits, military-related or otherwise.

    In 2012, Weinstein received total compensation worth $273,355 — about 47 percent of all money MRFF raised through contributions and grants that year, according to IRS filings accessed on the nonprofit transparency website GuideStar.Weinstein votes on his own salary as part of a three-member board that is smaller than the five-member board Charity Navigator recommends for nonprofits. And MRFF counts him — a paid employee — as an independent voting board member, an apparent violation of IRS rules.”

    He’s worth every penny of it!
