Biden’s brass have issued their response to the enforced end of the vaccine mandate.
The DOD document posted by Jordan Schachtel at the Dossier shows that the personnel forced out of the military due to the vaccine mandate will not be reinstated, nor will they have their discharge upgraded.
Q: What happens to adverse actions in military personnel records for current or former Service members who refused to be vaccinated?
A: Uniformed Code of Military Justice actions remain in the Service member’s Official Military Personnel File.
Republicans could have held out, but they settled for an end to the mandate, without achieving justice for the 8,123 Service members forced out.
Our military readiness has been weakened and there is a recruiting crisis.
The DOD document specifically denies that the mandate caused the recruiting crisis so you know that it’s true.
Q: Did the COVID vaccine mandate hurt recruiting efforts?
A: Our data and analysis does not indicate a direct correlation between the COVID-19 vaccination requirement and our current recruiting challenges. Eligible youth who are not inclined to serve cite a number of issues including the possibility of physical injury, possibility of emotional/psychological harm, having to leave family and friends, and other career interests, to include attending college.
This sudden outbreak of homesickness, fear of psychological harm and desire to attend college is interestingly timed.
The Army went from 68,000 new recruits in 2019 to struggling to get 57,606 new recruits. That’s a sizable outbreak of homesickness.
The DOD insists that they can’t get new recruits because Americans have become cowards who fear psychological harm and leaving home. It’s an unconvincing lie from unconvincing liars.
