Army Initiates Involuntary Separations of COVID-19 Vaccine Refusers

The U.S. Army has initiated the involuntary separation of service members who’ve refused the COVID-19 vaccine.

Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth issued a directive that “commanders are to initiate involuntary administrative separation proceedings against any Soldier who has refused the COVID-19 vaccination order and does not have an approved or pending exemption request.”

Servicemembers will be discharged under honorable or general conditions unless there is unrelated detrimental conduct, a provision designated under the recently-enacted 2022 National Defense Authorization Act.

“Army readiness depends on Soldiers who are prepared to train, deploy, fight and win our nation’s wars,” Wormuth said.

“Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness. We will begin involuntary separation proceedings for Soldiers who refuse the vaccine order and are not pending a final decision on an exemption.”

    Military command authority should only be questioned by civilian authority. Military personnel must follow orders of superiors at all times. Don’t agree with the orders? Leave your uniform behind and become a civilian. Then you are free of the chain of command. But, until legally released, you are still subject to military protocol.

    1. Lankester Merrin says:

      “Military personnel must follow orders of superiors at all times.”

      So, if a ‘superior’ orders their subordinates to take part in a firing squad executing civilian non-combatants, the subordinates must do so? How about a superior ordering their subordinates to violate the constitutional rights of any American citizen, such as by wholesale extra-judicial seizure of lawfully-possessed firearms? How about a superior ordering their subordinates to forcibly inject an otherwise-unknown substance into the bodies of American citizens? Should they follow those orders at all times, without question?

      You clearly have no understanding of the oath of office to which every military servicemember swears, nor of the underlying rights and liberties which the military exists to protect, by their sworn fealty to our Constitution, above all else, not merely by offering their strict obedience to any directive given by a “superior”. In the case of coerced experimental medical treatments (of any kind) to which servicemembers are ordered to submit, at threat of expulsion, the deviancy of the “superiors” is particularly chilling, where there is no extant or obvious imminent threat of harm to either the servicemember or their peers. It is the very same unquestioning obedience to such dubious orders from a chain of command that refuses to answer critical questions about the action being forced on the servicemembers, much less offer any coherent or rational justification for their non-wartime service-wide imposition on every person in service of a novel, experimental medical treatment that has ZERO track record of any length beyond maybe a year to 18 months to ascertain the potential dangers, short or long term, that is why the Nuremburg Code was issued in the wake of the trials of Nazi war criminals.

      Even the Nazis didn’t use their own soldiers as guinea pigs for a mass experimental drug testing, much less using the pretext of a largely-manufactured, hugely-inflated purported public health crisis. What does it say of the current military and civil leadership that they treat our own servicemembers with less integrity, honesty and concern than the Nazis did their own soldiers.

      There will be a reckoning for all this wicked, manipulative maltreatment of Americans by counterfeit leaders whose true allegiances are far from what they are hired, sworn and paid to serve, and it will not be pretty. Just following orders will not be any more of a valid defense today than it was in Germany in 1945.
