    The Army Is Begging Unvaccinated Soldiers To Return

    lol

    The Army is begging soldiers kicked out over the vax to come back. With a correction to their military records.

    Feckless leadership created this debacle.

    The Army Is Begging Unvaccinated Soldiers To Return

    Oh, how much the times have changed!


    The United States Army is now begging COVID unvaccinated soldiers, who underwent involuntary discharge for their refusal to take the vaccine, to return to service and also permits them to correct their military records!




    Just two years ago, in a shameful campaign, the Pentagon was gleefully discharging soldiers who refused to take Covid vaccines:

    ***


    We were assured that these discharges would “not affect military readiness.”

    “I can tell you there are no operational impacts across the force for readiness,” Marine Corps Lt. Gen. David Ottignon told lawmakers. “There’s no one community that has signaled an instance where a [leader], an NCO or another enlisted Marine is not present because of that.”
    The Marine Corps has, by far, kicked out the most service members: 1,968 total, 20% of whom received an honorable discharge. That amounts to just under 1% of the total force, which stands at about 215,000.

    However, the readiness suffered: thousands of service members were dismissed, and potential recruits declined to enlist in the Armed Services, because, guess what, young healthy men loath COVID vaccines.

    More than 17,000 service members balked at taking the shots, citing safety fears linked to the vaccine’s speedy development and spurred by misinformation about messenger ribonucleic acid technology, as well as concern over fetal cell lines used in formulation and testing. The more the controversy raged in the news, the more troops asked to skip the shots, Military Times reporting found.



    The COVID vaccine mandate removed three times as many servicemembers (8,339, see above) compared to the 2,402 soldiers tragically killed in Afghanistan. The involuntarily terminated soldiers were, of course, the best, the brightest, the healthiest, and most conscientious, who cared the most about their health.

    Thousands were given career-destroying reprimands:

    Lt. Col. Terry Kelley, a spokesman for the Army, said that 2,767 soldiers have received “general officer written reprimands” — killing their opportunities for promotions or transfers within the military — and that two battalion commanders as well as four other officers have been relieved of their duties but remain enlisted in the military.
    The leadership, sadly, stayed silent. (pictured here is Lloyd Austin)


    As a result, the military is missing its recruitment goals by 25%:

    The ones who refused the vaccine should been tried at Court Martial and given a less than honorable discharge. Trying to get them back is an incredibly bad decision and shows true weakness at the upper levels of the chain of command. All it will do is tell every Swinging Richard that is it okay to disobey orders if you are scared or just don't feel like doing it.

    Real men did their duty and didn't whine because they got some sand in their vaginas.

    Well that isn't going to happen.

    As a soldier for 26 years, I hear you. But I made my name by being what my platoon sergeant called me when I was made a corporal- he said, a radical.

    Rules are great. Sort of a how to. Best practices.

    But don't be wedded to them. To win, sometimes you got to bend the rules. If needed break them.

    And I did. My squad, always # 1 in the battalion for field training. Never above OK for garrison stuff.

    Why should they return after being insulted?

    Nothing has changed nor will until we have an election and some serious housecleaning Top Down from the White House!

    You are not required to commit suicide because of some political appointee in Washington DC.

    Now that sounds overly dramatic but obviously these individuals had no trust in a shot that they saw as untested and unnecessary. They obviously took the dishonorable discharge out of fear of the shot, as young healthy people that certainly did not need it. A soldier is not going to give up a military career because they thought the shot might just make them sick for a few days. Right or wrong they had to believe that. Now the idiots in DC are obviously admitting that they were wrong once again.
