Thousands of American military personnel face disciplinary action until dismissal if they have not been fully vaccinated with COVID-19 by Monday.
As the vaccination deadline was approaching, the two top Marines begged the army.
“All Marines in the unit must be vaccinated,” said Commandant of the Marine Corps, General David Berger. “We don’t have an extra Marine Corps.”
91% are fully vaccinated and the Marines will have the worst record of all services.
The Navy, with the most severe COVIDs on the USS Theodore Roosevelt, has the highest record of 97% being fully vaccinated.
Maj. Gen. Bruce Gillingham, Inspector of the Navy, said unvaccinated military personnel “may be administratively separated because they did not follow direct orders.”
Davis Younts is a lawyer, a member of the Air Force Reserve Command, and represents about 40 military personnel from all branches, 22 of whom are Navy SEALs. Youngz himself refuses the vaccine.
“My clients don’t think this was caused by military preparation, medical reasons, or even military order and discipline,” Yontz said. “I feel it is very, very political.”
It is political in Oklahoma, and the Republican Governor has decided that National Guard soldiers do not need to be vaccinated.
“Freedom is our ability to say no, including vaccines,” said Governor Kevin Stitt.
The Army responded by adding a note stating that soldiers who refused to be active or guarded would be forced to retire, regardless of the Governor’s remarks.
