Military Denies Lt. Col. Hortenstine Constitutional Rights, Bars him from Flying, Leading Marines

Larry Kaifesh sat down this week with Lt Col Hank Hortenstine, who entered the USMC in January of 2003 and later completed flight training earning his Naval Aviator wings in 2005. Watch the entire interview here

After learning to fly his tactical platform, the UH-1N Huey, he joined the “Vipers” of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 169 (HMLA-169) completing 3 successive combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with his squadron.

Lt Col Hortenstine went on to serve as a search and rescue pilot stateside and then transitioned to fly international cargo and passenger missions and has accumulated over 4,400 flight hours while serving as an instructor pilot in multiple fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.

Two days after submitting his religious accommodation seeking exemption from the COVID shot mandate, he was grounded from all flying duties and subsequently removed from his installation Executive Officer leadership position. To date Lt Col Hortenstine remains prohibited from flying, from leading Marines, and has been repeatedly denied voluntary retirement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Check Out the petition Circulating AND PLEASE SIGN!!!!
