A group of Republican senators are backing an amendment to annual must-pass defense laws that would ban dishonorable secretions for troops who never comply with the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for your military.
Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) discussed his amendment during a press conference on Thursday on Capitol Hill, along with Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), and First Liberty Institute General Counsel Mike Berry, many either military veterans or members of the Senate Equipped Services Committee.
Marshall, an Army veteran, said:
Next Thursday is Veterans’s Time, a day that we stop, that this nation pauses, to recognize our veterans. Our chief executive instead is choosing to dishonor our military service officers by forcing these to be separated from the military and then pushing upon all of them a dishonorable discharge.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in late Aug ordered the coronavirus vaccine to be mandatory for all provider members. Since then, the Pentagon has repeatedly warned that will service members who never comply with the order can face disciplinary action and potential discharge.
Service people are allowed to apply for spiritual accommodations to be exempt from your mandate, but no demands have been approved, according to the New York Moments .
