Vice Admiral William “Dean” Lee, USCG (Ret), and Dr Sandy Miarecki, Lt Col, USAF (Ret), were interviewed on the Ark Midnight, The Intelligence Briefing.
During hour two of the show, John B Wells interviews Vice Admiral Lee. They focus on the recent discharges of the seven USCG Academy cadets and his efforts to engage with the commandant to convince her to treat the cadets the way the other service academies are treating those who requested COVID-19 vaccine religious exemptions while the legal cases continue to work their way through the courts.
Admiral Lee points out that the actions the USCGA took against the cadets were contrary to the current focus on diversity, inclusion and equity.
In hour three, John B Wells continues his interview with Admiral Lee who points out that senior military officers need to be willing to put their stars on the table and stand up to political leaders for the sake of the military services and the country.
Starting at the 24:00 point, John moves on to interviewing Dr Miarecki who was recently relieved of her duties at the USAFA Prep School after her request for a COVID-19 vaccine religious exemption was denied and for helping cadets submit exemption requests.
