New policy bars unvaccinated soldiers from re-enlistment, promotions as
Oklahoma governor says National Guard need not obey Biden's vax mandate.

Soldiers who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine and have not requested
an exemption will no longer be allowed to re-enlist or be promoted,
effectively ending their military careers. The new directive applies to
active-duty troops as well as reservists and National Guardsmen,
including those serving in states whose governors do not require the
vaccine.

The Nov. 16 memo, signed by Army Secretary Christine Wormuth, says
troops’ service records will be flagged the day they make their final
vaccine refusal, which follows a meeting with a medical professional and
a secord order to get vaccinated. This flag will bar them from being
promoted, reenlisting, continuing to receive enlistment bonuses,
attending service-related schools, or receiving tuition assistance.

“I authorize commanders to impose bars to continued service…for all
soldiers who refuse the mandatory vaccine order without an approved
exemption or pending exemption request,” Wormuth wrote in the memo. “The
Soldier will remain flagged until they are fully vaccinated, receive an
approved medical or administrative exemption, or are separated from the
Army.”

The issue of vaccinating the force, including the hundreds of thousands
of soldiers in the Army National Guard, has come to a head in recent
days. Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt has rebuffed President Joe Biden’s
directive that all federal employees, including troops in uniform, be
vaccinated, and his state’s adjutant general has told Oklahoma National
Guardsmen that they need not comply with the directive.


“We are getting to this point where the federal government and state
governments are essentially fighting over who has control of the force,”
said Anthony Kuhn, a managing partner at the Tully Rinckey law firm and
a New York State Army reservist who specializes in military law.

National Guard troops are largely under Title 32 orders, which puts them
under the control of their state governors. When they are activated
under Title 10, such as when they deploy overseas, they are under
federal control. To retain that ready force for overseas missions—for
example guard units were heavily relied upon throughout the miltary’s
campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan—the federal government foots the bill
for those troops even though they report to their governors,
complicating who has authority to direct those Guardsmen to be vaccinated.


In 2020, the National Guard was used more heavily than it has been since
World War II, with members called up to respond to wildfires, domestic
unrest, to give COVID shots and respond to flooding and hurricanes.

But the use of the Guard has become more contentious. The issue of who
has ultimate authority over the Guard is likely to end up in the courts,
said Eugene Fidell, a military law professor at the NYU School of Law.

“There are two clauses in the Constitution, the militia clauses. We,
over the decades—centuries, really—we've developed a kind of modus
operandi, where, you know, ultimate questions have been avoidable. But
we're getting to the point where these questions are not avoidable. And
that is a crisis,” Fidell said.

Kuhn said the Army’s decision to cut funding for soldiers and Guardsmen
who do not get vaccinated “was not surprising.”

“It’s kind of a backdoor way to force this policy on the states,” Kuhn
said.

About 77 percent of the total Army—active duty, Reserve, and Guard—has
received at least one shot, and 72 percent are completely vaccinated,
according to the latest data provided by Army spokesman Lt. Col. Terence
Kelley. Many of the unvaccinated soldiers are in the National Guard or
reserves. Only 51.84 percent of the Army National Guard is fully
vaccinated; 60.72 percent have received at least one dose of the
vaccine, according to data provided to Defense One by the National
Guard. There are 329,709 Army National Guardsmen serving in all 50
states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories.

It has been unclear whether the Pentagon could force Guardsmen, who
serve under both federal and state control, to be vaccinated if the
governors they serve do not require a vaccine.

Pentagon Orders Troops to Get COVID Vaccine

The new Army guidance asserts that no service member who refuses to get
vaccinated or to procure an official exemption may continue to serve
without limits in the Army, and thus in the National Guard.

Soldiers flagged for refusing the vaccine will be allowed to pursue
separation from the military through disability evaluation, retirement,
resignation, or separation after completion of service, the Army said.

the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John

Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
