Navy Will Discharge Sailors Who Resist Vaccine Mandate

The decision has finally been made for the Navy as to how it will treat sailors who do not want to comply with the vaccination order.

On Monday, the NAVADMIN stated, “In order to ensure a fully vaccinated force, U.S. Navy policy is to process for separation all Navy service members who refuse the lawful order to receive the COVID-19 vaccination and do not have an approved exemption.”

This is a decision that will surely not sit well with most Americans.

Get Out

The Navy gave sailors until November 14 to get vaccinated or risk the consequences.

As long as they had their first dose by that date, they had until December 14 to get the second dose.

Now that the first deadline has come and gone, the long-awaited separation policy is finally known.

While Joe Biden supported dishonorable discharges for all service personnel that refused the order, it does appear some common sense has been used in deciding how to handle this problem.

A dishonorable discharge has apparently been taken off the table.

The worst outcome will be a general discharge under honorable conditions, which means they will get to keep their VA benefits.

However, all personnel being discharged could get hit with a bill upon leaving.

NAVADMIN stated, “Bonuses, special pays and incentive pays become unearned when a Navy service member refusing the vaccine is no longer performing duties for which they are receiving such a bonus, special pay, or incentive pay.”

The statement went on to say, “Navy service members refusing the vaccine who are in a frocked status should be defrocked as soon as feasible.”

Currently, 96 percent of active-duty Navy have been vaccinated, which means roughly 14,000 sailors are about to be discharged, and that does not include Reserve sailors.

There are significantly more reservists that have not yet been vaccinated, so that number could literally double once they are figured into the equation.
