27 individuals have officially been discharged from the Air Force for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine, making them the first service members to be removed for disobeying the mandate. The Air Force gave its forces until Nov. 2 to get the vaccine, but thousands have refused or sought an exemption status.

On Monday, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said that these are the first airmen to be administratively discharged for reasons involving the vaccine. She said all of them were in their first term of enlistment, so they were younger, lower-ranking personnel.

Politico reports that while “the Air Force does not disclose what type of discharge a service member gets, legislation working its way through Congress limits the military to giving troops in vaccine refusal cases an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable condition.”

Stefanik said that none of the 27 discharged members sought any type of exemption such as medical, administrative or religious. As a result, they were formally removed from service for failure to obey an order. Stefanek said it is also possible that some had other infractions on their records, but all had the vaccine refusal as one of the elements of their discharge.

Politico adds, “Several officials from the other services said they believe that so far only the Air Force has gotten this far along in the process and discharged people over the vaccine refusal. According to the latest Air Force data, more than 1,000 airmen have refused the shot and more than 4,700 are seeking a religious exemption.”

    I went through the same thing with the anthrax vaccine. I was due to return to the states in a month so the doctor refused to give it to me due to a shortage of vaccine. It was reported that I refused the shot and I (a civilian) was processed for removal. It cost me $3000 for a lawyer but I got the last laugh. Due to bureaucratic ineptitude I was kept on the payroll for a month while I sat at home on full pay. It ended my chances for promotion but I was close to retirement anyway.

    I thought Biden’s vaccine mandate was overturned by the courts. This is an insane policy.

    That is a good start. Get rid of about 270,000 more military and shut down half of the defense contractors. We could save some real money. Give the money to American citizens if they promise to use the money to buy assault rifles and ammo to protect their homes and businesses from the communist rioters. Let Ali Baba and the forty thieves hire their own private security guards instead of using Uncle Sugar’s soldiers (our children) to keep the Middle East safe from the Religion of Peace devotees.

    The military really gives you little choice when it comes to innoculations.
    Just one of those things about joing the service. In return, the military is expected to tend to your health.

There’s nothing more reassuring than a President telling Americans that no matter how much they are suffering, more is coming.

Biden was asked the question “how many of the nation’s kids will you be able to get vaccinated before you need more money from Congress?”

“We’ll get through at least this year. We, we do need more money. But we don’t just need more money for vaccines for children eventually…”

And then Biden said this harrowing statement: “We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.”

He then emphasizes, “there’s going to be another pandemic. We have to think ahead. And that’s not something the last outfit did very well; that’s something we’ve been doing fairly well” he adds before concluding, “that’s why we need the money.”
