The Biden administration is seeking to "purge conservative service members" from the armed services for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine despite the lifting of the military's mandate, says Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks, a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Members of the military who refused the COVID-19 vaccine prior to the elimination of the mandate are still eligible for firing on a case-by-case basis, the Pentagon told the House Armed Services Committee chairman in a letter Banks released Thursday

A total of 69,000 troops did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and 53,000 sought a medical or religious accommodation, Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Gilbert Cisneros wrote to Armed Services Chairman Mike Rogers in the Feb. 27 letter

Of the 69,000 unvaccinated troops, 37,000 applied for a religious exemption from the military's vaccine mandate. Of those applicants, 19,100 were denied, and 400 were approved, according to the data provided in the letter. To date, 8,100 individuals have been separated from the military for not complying with the mandate.

A spokesperson for Banks said about 16,000 members of the military did not apply for an accommodation and refused to take the COVID vaccine. :snip:

Its a good thing recruitment is going sooooo well. 


The new ads are much more effective - especially if the prospect doesn't watch the news - which is usually the case for persons who are at the age to join and are likely to.
