Never in American history has the military been under siege by its own government who purports to lead them.
Instead of strengthing our forced at a time of geopolitical unrest, the cognitively deficient commander in chief has barreled forward with a vaccine mandate on all U.S. soldiers. Despite a SCOTUS ruling which brought down Biden’s mandate on private workers, soldiers are still being subjected to forced vaccinations with little exemptions allowed.
Many soldiers have refused and now the Pentagon has begun kicking them out. Meanwhile, recruitment is at its lowest.
On Thursday alone, the U.S. Navy announced it has discharged 45 service members who refused to accept inoculation with the coronavirus vaccine.
The personnel were released after failing to meet the November 28 deadline set by the Pentagon for the injection. Twenty-three active duty sailors were amongst those let go.
UPI reports the Navy said in a statement of those discharged, 22 were considered entry-level separations as they occurred during the initial training periods within their first 180 days of active service.
“It is my responsibility to deliver the most capable force and this guidance helps us maximize mission readiness,” Vice Adm. Bill Merz, the deputy chief of Naval Operations for Operations, Plans and Strategy, said in explaining the move. “The Navy continues to execute its mission around the world while we work through the challenges of this pandemic.”
People expelled for refusing the vaccine will receive a general honorable discharge, but could lose certain benefits or be forced to repay the cost of training and education in some cases, the Navy explained last year when announcing the compulsory vaccination program.
Navy personnel who can claim an exemption from mandatory vaccines, for health or other reasons, can be reassigned from their current duties.
As of Thursday, there were still 5,035 active-duty sailors and 2,860 reserve service members who were unvaccinated, the official notification read.
Of unvaccinated active-duty sailors, ten have permanent medical exemptions and 259 have temporary medical exemptions with 59 administrative exemptions awarded.
The Marine Corps, as of late last week, had discharged 334 Marines, and the Air Force, as of this week, had discharged 111 airmen for refusing to get the shots.
The Army is the only remaining service yet to have discharged any active duty personnel for refusing to have a mandatory shot.
As World War III looms in Eastern Europe, this news is troubling to say the least.
