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.
