Cases of Medical Incidents Reported by Military Pilots Increase by 1,700% More During Pandemic – Pentagon Blames it on COVID

The number of medical incidents among U.S. military pilots that prompted official reporting increased by more than 1,700% from 2019 to 2022, a phenomenon the Pentagon blames on COVID-19, reported.

The Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) reveals that the number of reportable medical events among military pilots increased from an average of 226 per year between 2016 and 2019 to 4,059 in 2022, as reported by Dr. Theresa M. Long, an Army flight surgeon.

According to Dr. Long, she decided to look into DMED after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) secretly widened the EKG parameter range for pilots.

Recall, FAA quietly indicated that US pilots’ hearts were damaged after taking the experimental vaccines.

According to Long, the new information she has uncovered forces her to submit another whistleblower complaint with the office of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

“What I found was a clear signal, that something in 2021 changed the health of service members,” Long told The Epoch Times. She said these signals were consistent with those in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports. But unlike VAERS reports, DMED data showed spikes in the number of diagnoses “made by a healthcare professional within the DOD on service members.”

The flight surgeon, Lt. Col. Theresa Long, has filed for whistleblower protection and testified against the vaccine mandate, alleging that the vaccine carries risk of severe side effects — more than the illness itself. Long did not respond to a request for comment from

According to her tweet, Long said she searched the database for all reportable events involving military pilots following the Federal Aviation Administration’s announcement in October it was easing some requirements for airline pilots regarding their cardiac health.

She, along with other opponents of mRNA vaccines, asserts that the FAA policy change was related to an increased number of patients with heart damage caused by the vaccines, according to her tweets.

Studies show, however, that the risks associated with COVID-19 vaccines are low. Rare side effects may include heart inflammation and short increases — less than a day — in a woman’s menstrual cycle, but with nearly 670 million doses given in the U.S. since Dec. 14, 2020, adverse events have remained low, even as 1.1 million Americans have died of the coronavirus.
The Defense Department said this week that the increase in reportable adverse events among military pilots is the result of COVID-19 itself, not the vaccines.

Responding to a query from, Defense Health Agency spokesman Peter Graves said Long mischaracterized the data in the defense epidemiology database, saying that she defined reportable events as those that cause “death, permanent harm or severe temporary harm,” but the Pentagon also requires that potential threats to the population, the chance of widespread transmission, or illnesses that cause disruption to training or operations be reported.

This includes COVID-19, according to Force Health Protection Guidance issued in 2020.

“The increased numbers of reportable events in 2020, 2021, and 2022 are due to the reporting of COVID-19 cases,” Graves said in an email Thursday.

The Gateway Pundit reported on January 2022 that DoD medical data showed military cancer diagnoses have tripled since the rollout of the experimental COVID vaccines, along with a 10x increase in neurological disorders and a nearly 5x increase in female infertility.

Ohio attorney Thomas Renz presented DOD medical billing data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) that exposes the disturbing truth about what is happening to the health of our service members since the rollout of the jab a year ago.

According to Renz, there has been an astronomical increase in several serious illnesses and disorder diagnoses in the US military since the rushed rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine – most concerning of which – cancer, which has seen a 3x increase.

“We have substantial data showing that we saw, for example, miscarriages increasing by 300% over the five-year average, almost. We saw almost 300% increase in cancer over the five-year average,” Renz said.

The DMED data also revealed that there has been a whopping ten times increase in neurological disorders since the vaccines were introduced, which directly impacts military readiness, especially within the US Air Force.

Not the most encouraging thing, considering the Warhawks in the DC Swamp are pushing to kick off WWIII with Russia.

“We saw — this one’s amazing — neurological. So, neurological issues which would affect our pilots, over 1000% increase. 1000,” he said.

“82,000 per year to 863,000 in one year. Our soldiers are being experimented on, injured, and sometimes possibly killed.”
