Wicker opposes the dishonorable discharge of troops who refuse the COVID vaccine …

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., A member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today joined Senator Roger Marshall, R-Kan and several other colleagues in detonating the Biden administration’s plan to to make coronavirus vaccination mandatory for the US military. Senators have introduced legislation that would prevent the Defense Ministry from taking adverse action against servicemen who refuse to take the coronavirus vaccine.

“We are all in the same boat and we need all the help we can get,” Wicker said of the state of the armed forces. “We certainly don’t need to lose our best and our brightest and our bravest of strength at a time like this.”

The Biden administration has refused to exclude members other than honorable liberators from refusing to take the vaccine, even as thousands of soldiers oppose a department-wide vaccination mandate. Other members of the service filed complaints against the warrant, citing potential violations of their constitutional rights.

Wicker criticized President Biden for his move, which could contribute to a readiness crisis in the military.

“Our Commander-in-Chief is grossly mistaken about the will of the American people,” Wicker said. “Not only will he create a crisis in the US military, but in addition to writing these mandates throughout our economy – from mandates to small businesses, mandates to businesses that would contract with the federal government – they will not be well received. And the free American citizens that I know and talk to when I get home are not going to put up with this. It’s going to create a shortage in the military, it’s going to create morale problems, and in the economy as a whole it’s going to create a recession.
