The deadline for active-duty and reserve Marines to take the jab is quickly approaching.
Active Marines must be fully vaccinated by November 28 and reservists must be vaccinated by December 28.
All of them have been informed that if they do not meet that deadline, they will be booted from the service.
The order for the vaccine is considered a direct order, so anyone disobeying it will be disciplined, according to a message posted by the Marine Administrative Message (MARAADMIN).
“Marines refusing the COVID-19 vaccination, absent an approved administrative or medical exemption, religious accommodation, or pending appeal shall be processed for administrative separation [in accordance with] this MARADMIN and supporting references.
“General Court-Martial Convening Authorities (GCMCA) retain authority to take any additional adverse administrative or disciplinary action they deem appropriate.”
Exemptions can be requested for administrative, medical, or religious reasons.
So far, the Marines have not given any religious exemptions.
As we have seen in other branches, Marines awaiting a decision on their exemption or those that have not been vaccinated are now considered undeployable.
As we saw with the Navy recently, the Marines may try “recoupment of any unearned special or incentive pays and advance educational assistance.”
Currently, eight percent of Marines have not taken the jab, and 17 percent were not fully vaccinated.
If the former number holds true, there will be roughly 23,000 Marines kicked out of the service, possibly with a dishonorable discharge, which would utterly destroy their lives.
This is Joe Biden’s America… digest that.
