A United States Navy Medical Service Corps whistleblower recently disclosed information from the Department of Defense that reportedly shows a major increase in military pilots with heart-related issues after the implementation of the COVID-19 vaccination.

Navy Medical Service Corps Lt. Ted Macie, who is an active-duty officer, a Navy health administrator, and a medical recruiter, shared the information Monday in a video on X, formerly Twitter. Macie presented his claims over concerns that have repeatedly been emphasized by his wife, Mara Macie, who is currently running for Florida’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In his video, Ted Macie claimed that the U.S. military has experienced a major increase in heart-related issues with helicopter and fixed-wing pilots. Macie claimed that Defense Department data shows a 937% increase in heart failure, a 152% increase in cardiomyopathy, a 69% increase in ischemic heart disease, a 62% increase in pulmonary heart disease, a 36% increase in hypertensive disease, and a 63% increase in other forms of heart disease compared to the five-year average before 2022.

In a statement released on X, Macie’s wife criticized the U.S. government’s treatment of military troops during the COVID-19 pandemic, argued that there is currently a high level of mistrust in the military’s leadership, and demanded accountability as “the only answer.”

“So you may have seen my wife’s recent post, and I want to elaborate on that and give you an example as to why reinstatement, back pay, and apologies isn’t enough,” Macie said in his video on Monday.

Macie told The Gateway Pundit, “The responses to our concerns from the DoD have been memorandums, letters. As in a letter displaying how they confirmed the data but said it was due to the covid virus, even though all the issues start in 2021.”

Macie explained that after meeting with the Chief of Naval Operations and her aid, the only response he has received is that the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database information has been passed on to the Navy Inspector General. “Slow-rolling everything has been the norm, as well as denying anything is happening,” he said.

“Congress’ response has been abysmal,” Macie added. “They’re more interested in going after woke things in the DoD, which, as we all know, is low-hanging fruit that’s of relatively low consequence compared to the death and injury over the illegal shot mandate.”

According to recent information published by the U.S. Army, 97% of active-duty U.S. troops are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, 90% of Army National Guard members are fully vaccinated, and 91% of U.S. Army Reserve members are fully vaccinated.
