It's not, really.  But there could be a difference between vaccines with full approval and those with "emergency" authorization (which is the category the Covid shots are in for the moment) as far as requiring anyone to get it.  But the military might have greater leeway in that regard, especially since it's a national security/unit readiness question the same as any other vaccine requirement.

That difference might also play somewhat into whether employers in general can really require their employees to get the shot.

When I entered the Army way back in '86, one of the first things they did was jab me with their pressure-shot injections of god only knows what.  "Have you had Measles?"  SHOT.  "Have you had Polio?"  SHOT.  "Are you going overseas?"  SHOT.  "Is there the slightest chance that you have Rabies right now?" SHOT.  Wasn't even questioned, you did it or you didn't get in.

Now, mind you this was 35 years ago, and advanced tracker technology has become miniaturized.  No longer do they have to inject the horse-pill-sized antiquated Lojak chip in our necks.  It's nanite-sized, so it won't be as painful.  If anything, I'd call today's soldiers lucky, because my chip itches to this day.  It may be faulty, too.  I think it occasionally beeps at the end of the month.

I'm thinking about some of the towns that have been outside the Marine bases I've been on.

Havelock NC? Lol no.
Whatever the garbage town just outside 29 Stumps? Lol no.

Most military TOWNS (not large cities near military bases) are full of government contractors raking in that sweet sweet government pay, trailer parks, retired Gunnery Sergeants who will still yell at you for putting your hands in your pockets, titty bars, check cashing places, more titty bars, five or eight Walmarts, and a shocking amount of used car dealerships, some titty bars, women who swear they are eighteen working in the titty bars, titty bars, tattoo shops, and titty bars.

Military towns are often not great places.
I was single, as a marine, in a military town, for my entire time in NC because the very last thing I ever wanted to do was even have a chance at knocking someone up and being stuck in that town forever.

NAS Whidbey Island was pretty OK, bought a house there.

It's because Democrats hate the military!

A story told on local talk radio which comes from a trusted friend of the host: At the Inauguration there was a flyover of military jets. VP Kommie-la Harris was outraged by the display of aggression by baby-killers, and think of all the carbon emissions! But then Sleepy Joe, awakened by the majestic roar, leaned over and told her, "It's OK. Those are *our* planes now."

I totally would have believed the tale had I not heard Rush Limbaugh say the same about Bill Clinton 30 years ago. Get some fresh derp, fer petes sake

I was thinking that COVID had likely overrun the places already, but yeah.

I had some relatives in Waynesville MO, by Ft. Leonard Wood.  My late uncle was a long time middle school principal there, with about half the students as military brats.. my aunt taught first grade.

You will not find verification yet because there is nothing to verify. This has not happened yet. The orders came down on Wednesday afternoon that (basically) all personnel at all DOD facilities will wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, but nothing yet on mandatory vaccinations.

Our nation's readiness to conduct war at a moment's notice is about the only thing the middle spectrum of politics agrees on.

On the far left you have a bake sale mentality for funding and on the right you have a "surrender to Russia" attitude.

Anyone and everyone who suckles at the Government teat needs to have a vaccine mandate, especially those who take an oath to defend.

Just like how FDR made soliders watch nuclear bombs going off to see what radiation would do to them, now Josef "méngüele" Biden is going to force military members to be injected with experimental vaccines that haven't yet been approved by the FDA.

Why do Democrat presidents treat the military like test subjects? Shows how much respect they have for the uniform. We aren't field mice !!

It's not a shot *mandate* yet because of what happened with anthrax (short version: wasn't fully approved, some really bad side effects happened).  What's happening now is the same for federal workers: get the shot OR get tested with increasing frequency.  Until we get full FDA authorization that's all we can do.

Put rapid tests at every duty desk, take one every day at 0730 if you're unvaccinated.  Including weekends.  Make it farking HURT to endanger the people you fight beside.

I mean, there's exceptions, but yeah, the CO's spouses in my units have either been KarenPrime or the other extreme where they will contradict the CO in public to help another spouse.  The latter are awesome, but not common enough.  It's a Batman and Joker dynamic.

Yes, corporate employers in general are waiting for the CDC to give its stamp of full approval, which will provide legal authorization for them to require vaccination as a condition of employment. And there's a bunch of them waiting, believe me. (Several corporate higher-ups in my extended family.) But the military aren't just employees of the federal government. They're explicitly under the orders of the Commander-in-Chief. If Biden ordered all troops to dye their hair pink, that's what they would have to do. And disobeying orders gets you court-martialed -- and that's under the UCMJ, which is much tighter than civil law.

Exactly. The "mandate" in NYC is that all city employees must either be vaxxed or have weekly negative covid tests. Giving people an out from getting vaccinated is not a vaccine mandate. Once the FDA approval changes from emergency to full use, that option will go away.

I was single, as a marine, in a military town, for my entire time in NC because the very last thing I ever wanted to do was even have a chance at knocking someone up and being stuck in that town forever.

NAS Whidbey Island was pretty OK, bought a house there.

I'm from Lawton, Oklahoma, attached to Fort Sill.  You nailed the features of an army town except for soldiers hitting on middle school girls.  And the farking officer wives, sheesh.

Officer wives - the Karens to rule all Karens. A more wretched hive of scum and entitlement won't be found except for politicians' wives...

Oh, and there was at least one other thing omb bbq left out: titty bars. There are quite a few of those outside nearly every military base, usually located right near a titty bar.

SHOT.  Wasn't even questioned, you did it or you didn't get in.

Now, mind you this was 35 years ago, and advanced tracker technology has become miniaturized.  No longer do they have to inject the horse-pill-sized antiquated Lojak chip in our necks.  It's nanite-sized, so it won't be as painful.  If anything, I'd call today's soldiers lucky, because my chip itches to this day.  It may be faulty, too.  I think it occasionally beeps at the end of the month.

This was a crazy thing for my ex wife to comprehend. Here she is going to school, getting an education and learning a profession while the military wives around here are trying to see who can own the ugliest coach bag and the first question is always "what rank is your husband". I was an E6 but she always pretended she had no idea what my rank was.  Loved her for that.

wxboy: sickb0y: You already have to get a whole raft of jabs when you go in.  How is this different?

It's not, really.  But there could be a difference between vaccines with full approval and those with "emergency" authorization (which is the category the Covid shots are in for the moment) as far as requiring anyone to get it.  But the military might have greater leeway in that regard, especially since it's a national security/unit readiness question the same as any other vaccine requirement.

That difference might also play somewhat into whether employers in general can really require their employees to get the shot.


Considering how millions have had the vaccine, and we have seen what the end results are, I don't give a shiat about that distinction any more.  It is safe, it works, and people who use that argument for antivax reasons are scum.

It hasn't been ordered yet. The order is to obtain information on making in mandatory.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will begin consulting military medical professionals, as well as the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to "determine how and when to make recommendations to President Joe Biden" about adding the COVID-19 vaccines to the full list of requirements for military personnel, the Pentagon announced Thursday evening.

The announcement came in the wake of Biden's call earlier in the day for the Pentagon to look into adding those vaccines to the list of required inoculations for service members. Biden also ordered that all federal workers not vaccinated against COVID-19 will be subject to masking, social distancing and mandatory testing.

True fact...  Before my brother retired and decided to be a full-time drunk, he was an officer. My sister-in-law is beyond entitled. My brother's daughter decided to join the Marines last winter. She had to quarantine alone in a hotel room for 14 days. My sister-in-law was on the phone daily trying to get the quarantine requirement waived.

When it was unsure if the Bootcamp graduation would be open to the public, my sister-in-law was trying to figure out a way to sneak onto the base using my brother's credentials to watch the graduation.

It's because Democrats hate the military!

A story told on local talk radio which comes from a trusted friend of the host: At the Inauguration there was a flyover of military jets. VP Kommie-la Harris was outraged by the display of aggression by baby-killers, and think of all the carbon emissions! But then Sleepy Joe, awakened by the majestic roar, leaned over and told her, "It's OK. Those are *our* planes now."

Until it's reached full, unconditional authorization (like all the other vaccines we get) we can't mandate it.  Until then the best we can do is make things suck more for unvaccinated.

Most military TOWNS (not large cities near military bases) are full of government contractors raking in that sweet sweet government pay, trailer parks, retired Gunnery Sergeants who will still yell at you for putting your hands in your pockets, titty bars, check cashing places, more titty bars, five or eight Walmarts, and a shocking amount of used car dealerships, some titty bars, women who swear they are eighteen working in the titty bars, titty bars, tattoo shops, and titty bars.

Military towns are often not great places.
I was single, as a marine, in a military town, for my entire time in NC because the very last thing I ever wanted to do was even have a chance at knocking someone up and being stuck in that town forever.

NAS Whidbey Island was pretty OK, bought a house there.

I'm from Lawton, Oklahoma, attached to Fort Sill.  You nailed the features of an army town except for soldiers hitting on middle school girls.  And the farking officer wives, sheesh.


Oh, Jesus. Jacksonville and Court St. Never will you find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Legal issues with mandating something released under emergency approval, they've probably had lawyers on this for months. Also, just 2 days ago full masking orders returned because the vaccine rates and mask usage weren't even close to matching.

Making a universal federal mandate currently seems legally impossible without a Constitutional Amendment (which in turn seems politically impossible before 2022).

However, extensive federal mandates and universal mandates by individual states are not the same thing as a (legal) universal federal mandate.

Yeah there were a lot of recent articles about GOMORs and article 15s for failure to mask when unvaccinated.

In fact on Tuesday we did a general reminder to the entire formation of "hey if you are not vaccinated you must wear a mask, we know the general rate of vaccination and we see a lack of masks that is not supported by that general rate of vaccination. We will be checking up on this."

Then the new DOD policy went out. Currently we are waiting to see what the post decides but have already order everyone in our unit to comply with the new policy to include during PT.

Sailor: "I was told I could have this done with a needle & I want you to make an appointment for me at Sick Bay. The soonest I can do this is ..."
Needle Gun: "Braap-click."
Sailor: "Ow! What the f...?"
Corpsman: "Next!"

Obviously they're on a very steep ramp up to the Vaccination Tower.

A pleasant side effect of the ramp is that it keeps Trump from showing up and giving the medics insane orders about internal use of bleach and UV light, but that was just a lucky coincidence.

I mean, there's exceptions, but yeah, the CO's spouses in my units have either been KarenPrime or the other extreme where they will contradict the CO in public to help another spouse.  The latter are awesome, but not common enough.  It's a Batman and Joker dynamic.


Officer kids can be just as bad, if not worse than their Karen mothers.

My dad was a USAF Chief, and I had a Major's kid consistently think he was better than me because his dad outranked mine.

And some of the kids were just as bad if not worse when dad went back to work for the USAF as a GS.

I expect the next step after this is requiring vaccination before being allowed on site in any capacity. If someone bringing a plague on site will lower military readiness, you can be sure it will eventually get there.  From there the military contractors that want to continue to work with the military will get everyone vaccinated.

Hospitals have started the push down: senior management was required to get vaccinated or get canned (and there were senior executives that were fired as a result).  And then this was pushed down and many non complaint doctors and nurses have been fired. I expect that any of the fired people will have a hard time getting hired until their vaccinations are all up to date.

Colleges are all going that way: students, instructors and staff will all have to be vaccinated before September and show proof of vaccination before being allowed back on campus.

Larger commercial companies are going that way: google has announced that they will require everyone to get vaccinated before being allowed back in the building. Amazon is requiring you either get vaccinated or wear a mask (and not wearing a mask will get you fired if you are not vaccinated).

Next up will be:  no proof of vaccination, you get turned back by INS, OR you pull over to the vaccination center at border patrol and they vaccinate you right there.

I expect the second step for any of these places will be: visitors will be required to show proof of vaccination before being allowed to enter the building.

A fire marshal I used to work with went to dinner with his family in a local restaurant that he is required to inspect (one of the hazards of working in the town you live in for some of us).  The hostess told them that the wait was about 20 minutes and his daughter blurted out, "DO YOU KNOW WHO..." before he could clap his hand over her mouth, say "Sorry, we'll be going now.", and drag her out the door.

I know that Karen labeling is all the rage and it often is highly applicable. I also know that we value our own experiences over those from others.  Having said that, the brazenly entitled shiat I've seen Navy/Marine wives pull is mind bottling.
I feel like even though we are all human where we live and the societal norms we live under have a huge hand in forming who we are.

Military dependent Karens, the terrifying  dependapotamus as she's often known as is like the 13th century Mongolian horse archer of Karens. Raised and nurtured in an unforgiving and highly competitive environment with scant resources and outlet store Coach bags they learn to ask "what's your husband's rank?" at an early age and become so good at it that they can sometimes even overpower and wear down actually military service members who hold actual rank within the military by the sheer force of their entitled biatchery alone.
Some ways to spot them:
-they drive a minivan with stickers all over the god damn windows
-the van WILL have "NAVY(or Marine) WIFE! THE HARDEST JOB IN THE NAVY(or Marines)". Which always insulted me a bit because where is their PTSD where they are always smelling burning bodies or the loops of adult men screaming in their dreams?
-the cheapest, biggest, and most logo inflamed coach bag they can find.
-(when I was in) the zebra dyed hair "style"
-crippling credit card debt
-devastatingly fast in short bursts and in straight lines.
-will relent if you agree to come to their candle/Tupperware/dildo/leggings party
-almost always live in base housing because base housing is "best" for reasons they can't explain.

Officer Karens are even worse due to them (often) being college educated as well and their debatably higher intelligence.  Finding them is simple however.  If you ever want to find an officer wife, just look on the end of a Sergeant's cock. I promise you Major, half those kids are not yours but here is a salute for you anyway, Semper Fi delta delta.
