Army to Discharge Unvaccinated Soldiers ‘Immediately’

The Army is the only remaining military branch yet to discharge anyone for failing to get the Covid-19 vaccine but that’s about to change. Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said, “effective immediately, commanders will initiate involuntary administrative separation proceedings for Soldiers who have refused the lawful order to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and who do not have a pending or approved exemption request.”

The Washington Examiner reports:

Soldiers can apply for religious or medical exemptions, though approval isn’t guaranteed. In other cases, soldiers who plan on leaving the Army or begin transitioning by July 1 can seek a temporary exemption that would allow them to remain unvaccinated until their departure.

“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.”

For the soldiers who eventually get separated over their refusal, they will be discharged under honorable or general conditions unless there is unrelated detrimental conduct to consider, as a result of a provision included in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, which President Joe Biden recently signed into law.

As of last week, the last time the Army released vaccination data, 96% of the active-duty force was fully vaccinated and the percentage increases by 1 point when including those who are partially vaccinated. About 79% of the Army reserve is fully vaccinated, though the Army National Guard and Reserve don’t have to be fully vaccinated until June.

The Army has approved six of 709 permanent religious exemptions and zero of 2,910 permanent religious exemptions.

  1. “The Army has approved six of 709 permanent religious exemptions and zero of 2,910 permanent religious exemptions.”

    So, which is it? 6 of 709 or zero of 2910 “permanent religious exemptions”?

  2. I hope all of these people being separated from service UNCONSTITUTIONALLY file a lawsuit against Faux President Biden and his Administration. The Supreme Court has ruled these mandates to be UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

  3. Why waste time? It sounds like a rubber-stamped NO…there is no due process in an edict like this…it’s a sham!
    Does discharging unvaccinated troops make us MORE combat ready with FEWER soldiers? This Administration is a disgrace!

  4. This is the best thing that could happen to them,Better healthy and alive than jabbed and sick for life.Plus why die in a war that has nothing to do with American freedom.Just make more money for Biden and his CCP buddies.Biden will throw the troops under the bus and give all the 782 gear to the Russians.

  5. When the Republicans get in power again they need to pass a law that the President’s Senator’s and Rep’s families can be held responsible for any crimes they do while in office! This might help keep them honest. As it is now most will be dead by the time they are charged with any of the crimes they are now committing.

  6.  “Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness.” is not true. the CDC has already admitted the shot does not prevent you from getting covid or transmitting it. but it has ruined the lives of young healthy people which would include military members.

    1. We have our military discharging capable troops and now a big gun control push going on at the same tme. It almost seems like our corrupt bought government is trying to weaken the military(all branches) and at the same time make the American citizens defenseless by taking away their weapons. Should make everyone a whole lot skeptical !!!!!!

  7. Well, that makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? America will be safer and better prepared with fewer military men and women to serve and protect! Sounds about right for these vacuous, demented Democrats! And, frankly, the military “leaders” who roll over and play dead for these “mandates,” are likely to turn and run away if they’re ever called to lead the charge!! What a sad state of affairs for what was once the greatest country in the world! 🙁

  8. Doing everything to weaken our military. Gays, trannies, and illegals will dominate our armed forces making way for Communist China to take over. First on their agenda will be to eliminate the politicians, then the gay and trannie population, then blacks will be next. So for those who are so adamant and supportive of socialism and communism, you might want to reconsider your priorities.

  9. The USA Is Going To Need Our Military Men And Women . These Terrorist Democrats Are going To Make Sure The USA Is Helpless In War . China Has Already Taking Over The Democrats = Joe Biden – Kamala Harris – Barack Obama – Nancy Pelosi And Other Democrat Party’s . People Of America China Has Been Buying Up The USA Farm Lands Hunter Biden Sold China Coal Mine And Know Telling What Else . This Is Against The USA OF AMERICA . Yet The USA AMERICAN PEOPLE JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH THESE NAXI TERRORIST DEMOCRATS RAPE OUR USA COUNTRY THE USA OF AMERICA . MOST OF THESE DEMOCRATS SHOULD BE IN PRISON RIGHT NOW . THEY HAVE LIED – STOLE – CHEAT ANF ROB THE USA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE . IT IS TIME FOR THE USA PEOPLE TO SAY NO MORE THE PEOPLE OF THE USA IS TAKING BACK THE USA FROM TERRORIST PARTYS THE DEMOCRATS . SHAME ON THE ONES WHO VOTED THESE NAXI TERRORIS IN OFFICE .

  10. Fool, idiot, stupid, doesn’t have clue, and doesn’t care, Joe China!!! What ever bad happens needs to be pinned on his lapel!!! and behind…power hungry old man!!!

  11. The democrats fought for mentally challenged men who pretend to be women to serve in the military but get rid of great soldiers because they don’t kneel for nutty king Biden. Why in the hell are we not putting pressure on democrats to boot Biden out of office because of being demented? They announce that the military did not fill the enlistment quota and he is removing health bodied soldiers from military? What a moron. Next he will mandate the military draft because of what he has done. Then you will see even democrats who have young men and women tell bozo to shove it.

  12. Yeah, while the rest of Brandon & Milley-Vanili’s ‘shock-troops’ can go to the Ukrainian-border & ‘instruct’ Russian soldiers, on CRT. 👀 The Russians will be ‘shocked & awed’ by this, wussies & pussies, brigade❓

  13. Under DMED reporting It has become clear that Covid vaccination massively and permanently impairs reradiness in all services. This directive to remove the unvaccinated from service in light of what DMED already proves should require that those issuing such orders be courtmartialed and shot.

  14. This is so ridiculous. My husband and I have just recovered from Covid and we both have been vaccinated. The same goes for many of our family and friends. Getting the vaccination is not going to protect you. It is not effective against the variants. Our government knows this, so their insistence that everyone get the vaccine, including the military, is obviously about something else.

  15. It is absolutely mind boggling that our military leaders are so stupid. The fake, toxic, vaccines do not work, the boosters do not work, and the short term and possible long term side effects are potentially very dangerous. Talk about being unprepared for war.

  16. This shows the IGNORANCE that is the Pedo Joe Admin. He is trying to get America into a War and is kicking out the very people who will have to fight it. Those who have gotten the jab given the FACTS about the Vaccine and what it does not do and what it does.

  17. WHO IS CALLING THE “SHOTS HERE” RUSSIA OR CHINA? CNN NEW RATINGS ALL TRIPLE XXX, FORGOT TO MENTION, EVERYBODY IS SUING FOR HUNTER BIDEN’S TRAVEL RECORDS, ON TAX PAYER MONIES TO CUT THEIR PERSONAL FINANCIAL DEALS WITH SECRET SERVICE SECURITY PROTECTION ON AIR FORCE TWO, GATHERING THAT POT OF GOLD FOR THE BIDEN FAMILY. The biden’s pot of gold from China, what did it cost America? Inside traders must go, they are not honest,has China installed a puppet government with the Biden’s? Another staged setting for the fake biden, National Security risk? yes, the bidens are, compromised yes, they are, right down to the last 30 millions they received from China Communist ,sold us down the river to China and Russia, Wake up America there is a traitor in the White House Biden and his band of misfits are not faithful to their oath of office, ‘Stupid fxxxing laws, Stupid fxxxing reporters”, DEMOCRATS KEEP BREAKING THE USA LAWS AND JUST DON’T CARE, TIME TO VOTE THEM OUT, PELOSI CHEATS, WHERE ARE THE INSIDE TRADER INVESTIGATIONS, CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, DEMOCRATS SAY FXXX YOU AMERICA. ( Patriotic post .com} Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson has called for President Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test, citing his shocking performances with the press. Everybody is stupid except joe biden, and of course the smartest man he ever met, was hunter biden, the corrupt fantasies of joe biden’s world of criminally insane BS. The biden crime family should be forced to return all the money they have accepted from Russia and China. Pay to play is a crime against the the United States when they broke their oath trust when sworn into office. Why keep them in power? look what they still have accomplished for China and Russia and nothing for the United States or America.

  18. Lawful order to be vaccinated? I wonder? This is to ensure our soldiers can fight a war? When was the last war our soldiers won a war? I think our POLITITIONS have lost every %$#@! war THEY’VE started since WWII!


  20. This is when you do not have support from you leaders. Starts from top to speak up and defend their subordinates. The same way these leaders expects soldiers to do their job, is the same way they should be defending them. Woke leaders make weak organizations.

  21. This is the plan. You didn’t think the Chinese gave millions to the biden family for nothing, did you. Decimate our military so they can swoop in. – and you really don’t think that biden is working for the American people did you? he is working for the CCP, and is in charge in his own mind. .

  22. Vaccines PREVENT diseases. It has been proven that the covid jab does NOT PREVENT you from getting covid so it is not a vaccine. What it really is is gene therapy because it changes your DNA. So how can they say that this is a “lawful order”?

  23.  “Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness. This is total B.S.Poeple that are vaccinated still contract Covid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Let’s see how effective the troops are when the myocarditis kicks in, or the cognitive issues or any of the other issues flooding the VAERS database happen. Should be interesting. Fools!

  25. I was really hoping the Army(now-army) wouldn’t cave to the illegitimate illegal mandates of a lunatic imbecile. For the first time since my service I am ashamed of being a combat Veteran of the US army. They are ignoring true facts and following the illegal orders of an imposter illegitimately squatting in the Oval Office. Our military is acting like a bunch of sheepish followers instead of true leaders of the free world.

  26. This is just a continuation of what bama startedwhen removed the loyal American Admirals and Generals, who have proven their worthlessness! By their actions in Afghanistan and the abandoned American citizens andloyal allies! Bama wanted to detroy the military, he wanted it to be no stronger than any country in the MiddleEast! You can bet Putin is laughing out loud as this AntiAmerican government destrys its own military, while trying to show Putin and China how weak we really are! Didn’t have this BS problem with our last President! Now we have a puppet with his unknown string puller to operate his mouth!

    1. The first sentence should have read This is a continuation of what bama started when he discharge the 600 Loyal Admiral and Generals and replaced them with ths batch of leaders, who have proven their worthlessnes in Afghanistan and by abandoning American citizens and loyal allies plus causingthe deaths of American Military personnel!

  27. What would bozo do if every single soldier said they were unvaccinated? That’s what they should do. He can send his son to fight. This is going to be another Afghanistan.

  28. I always thought an enlistment was a contract. If so, then soldiers should be able to sue for breach of contract if they are involuntarily discharged. The government should be required to pay out the remaining wages the contract would require. Oops, that just gives Biden another way to spend money.
