It looks like in the military, calling these people’s bluff worked.
The US Army has threatened repercussions for soldiers who decline to receive Covid-19 vaccinations, saying that insubordinate troops will be barred from promotions, reenlistment, and a number of special military services.
Army personnel who refuse the jab, including reservists and Army National Guard troops, will now have their service records “flagged,” preventing them from receiving “favorable personnel actions” such as reenlistment bonuses, promotions to higher ranks, decorations and other awards, attending military academies, as well as tuition assistance with higher education, according to an official memo obtained by DefenseOne on Thursday.
“I authorize commanders to impose bars to continued service… for all soldiers who refuse the mandatory vaccine order without an approved exemption or pending exemption request,” Army Secretary Christine Wormuth wrote in the document, dated November 16.
“The soldier will remain flagged until they are fully vaccinated, receive an approved medical or administrative exemption, or are separated from the army.”
Around 72% of the army’s active-duty, reserve and Guard troops have been fully vaccinated, according to Pentagon data cited by DefenseOne, while some 77% have received at least one dose. Though the majority of soldiers, sailors and airmen across all US military services are now immunized, some branches continue to see hold-outs, with nearly 8,500 Air Force personnel missing a vaccination deadline earlier this month as thousands seek religious exemptions.
The Marine Corps, meanwhile, announced on Thursday that it has no plans to immediately expel troops who miss a November 28 deadline. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro, whose branch oversees the Marines, said unvaccinated devil dogs would be treated “in a very respectful manner” and evaluated on a “case-by-case basis” – despite a previous memo warning that uncooperative soldiers would be outright booted from the service.
Obviously, their lives are going to be hell.
But they avoided immediate ejection.
Apparently, the government wants to make sure it has enough soldiers to, you know – kill a lot of people.
You’d think anyone looking at this would be scratching their head as to how it is possible for the military to allow people to remain unvaxed, if in fact the story that Fauci is telling is true.
Fauci says that no one can remain unvaxed because unvaccinated people create variants that do not affect them but kill the vaccinated. So how is it possible to have unvaccinated people in the military, in close quarters with the vaccinated? Aren’t these unvaccinated just going to completely wipe out the vaccinated with the new strains they’re producing nonstop?
Apparently, no one is actually worried about that.
Which, it seems, would make people wonder about the rest of the professions, where everyone is getting fired for refusing the vax.
