United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-2, has issued a stinging rebuke of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for military personnel.

"President Biden told all of America that the pandemic is over. Yet, our national security is in danger because of his extension of these authoritarian vaccine mandates," said Van Drew.

"The United States military is faced with one of the most difficult recruiting years in decades, exacerbated by these COVID-19 vaccine mandates. For years, I have zealously advocated for Americans to exercise medical freedom over their health choices.

“Not only do these mandates not follow the science, but it is putting our military readiness at risk. We have already seen thousands of service members get discharged based on their decision to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and now the Coast Guard is forced to deal with a recruiting crisis. President Biden needs to get off his high-horse, reverse these unconstitutional mandates on our military, and reinstate every service member who was discharged,” said Van Drew.

Van Drew is a Day 1 co-sponsor of the bill that would protect military personnel from being discharged for refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here is Van Drew’s letter to the Secretary of Defense requesting that this mandate policy be reversed.

The vaccine policy is directly affecting United States military recruitment according to Van Drew.

Recruitment is presently so challenging that the United States Coast Guard is offering $50,000 signing bonuses to help attract new recruits.
