According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Army may move Lr. Col Vindman and his family onto a military base for security purposes.
The U.S. Army is prepared to move Col. Vindman and his family onto a military base in the area to ensure their security if it is determined that they are in physical danger, according to U.S. officials.
Army security officials in recent weeks conducted a security assessment at Col. Vindman’s request, reviewing both his and his family’s physical security and their online security, according to U.S. officials.
Army security officials have also been monitoring Col. Vindman and his family around the clock to make sure there aren’t any imminent threats, officials said.
“The Army will make sure he’s safe, and the Army is actively supporting any safety needs as deemed necessary,” an official said. “It’s hard that he has been catapulted into the public eye. He served his country honorably for 20 years, and you can imagine this is a tough situation for him and his family.”
Republican lawmaker Chris Stewart asked Lt. Col. Vindman if he always insists civilians call him by his rank.
Vindman replied “Mr. Stewart, Representative Stewarts. I’m in uniform wearing my military rank I just thought it was appropriate to stick with that… Because, i’m sorry Mr. Stewart …I don’t believe you did.. the attacks that I’ve had in the press, in Twitter have kind of eliminated the fact that either marginalizing me as a military officer.”
