This is coolbert:
More legal stuff with the military dimension.
Vaccine for the Covid-19 virus. Those refusing the inoculation NOT going to be dishonorably discharged? As is being proposed.
KWTX for the story and thanks to same.
"FORT HOOD, Texas (KWTX) - Federal lawmakers are backing legislation prohibiting dishonorable discharges for military service members who refuse to get their COVID-19 vaccine."
"When a soldier leaves the service, they receive one of a number of discharges. The most likely discharges are honorable, general under honorable or other than honorable. The worst is a diss honorable discharge, given to a soldier as a result of a court-martial for things like desertion, murder and other crimes."
As has been mentioned a number of times now, American military personnel of whatever service BY LAW cannot refuse medical treatment. Medical treatment so broadly defined as to include any sort of prophylactic care. Inoculations of any sort included. Failure to comply with ordered medical treatment grounds for dismissal with less than honorable discharge. BY LAW.
A refusal under the proposed law will not warrant a dishonorable discharge but rather something less severe. Dishonorable discharge in the normal sense understood as being used to punish a serious offense of more violent and criminal nature.
