Over 8,000 service members have been terminated for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Last week, I supported passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that rescinds the Biden Administration's harmful and pointless COVID-19 vaccine policy.
Even though the Senate blocked Sen. Ted Cruz's and my amendment that would have reinstated service members discharged for refusing a vaccine with back pay, I supported passage of the NDAA that rescinds Biden's military COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Our men and women of the U.S. military are the finest among us and deserve members of Congress fighting for their health autonomy and healthcare freedom.
On Friday, I joined nine of my Republican colleagues in a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin urging him to freeze all COVID-19 vaccine-related discharges, and to establish a quick and thorough process so all members who were discharged because they refused the COVID-19 vaccine can be reinstated with back pay and full benefits.
