Also, aren't servicemen and women injected with a f*ckload of vaccines just as a condition of joining the military and/or traveling to foreign countries?
 
2021-09-12 9:13:44 PM  
In a letter dated August 23?

I guess he was warned about the vaccine mandate by a future version of himself?

Yes.

I'm betting he's running from something nasty that he thinks is about to come out, and by going all Antivax he can claim whatever it is is retaliation for him "Standing up for his beliefs".

/Or he's dumb as hell

Any officer who speaks in those terms about the political party he doesn't like should be court-martialed for disloyalty.  IDGAF which side fo the aisle he's on.

Probably fake

I can understand why he sympathizes with the Afghan military, though.   I mean, here he is, suddenly quitting after nearly 20 years of being paid, trained and equipped by the US government.
 
2021-09-12 9:46:29 PM  
Dude was up for at least fifty grand in pension for the rest of his life. Hope the Gofundme covers that.

And their dependents.

As a kid I was vaccinated against all kinds of weird shiat so we could travel to Turkey, Moscow, and other countries.

My flipper appendages dismiss this asshole with a wanking motion.

Any officer who is that vulnerable to propaganda should either resign or risk removal.

Buh-by.

I served over 20 years under Carter, Reagan, Bush I, and Clinton. If I didn't agree with the US government, I voted and wrote to my Congressional Representatives and Senators, as well as the President.

I certainly wouldn't throw my pension and retirement benefits away over a vaccination.

This guy is stupid. Was his major in college Political Science or English?

This seems unreal.

But if this is legit, just by her TWITTER HANDLE this woman is a horrible piece of shiat just like her husband.
 
2021-09-12 11:31:20 PM  
I bet that guy thought he was typing something all patriotic and shiat.
Oops.
 
2021-09-12 11:33:45 PM  
my lieutenant colonel husband has resigned

Or... he's planning on divorcing your unvaccinated ass & doesn't want to give up any of his pension in a year or two. Presumably someone who's been around the army that long knows how to type up an official sounding memo.

Nah, he's a tool & as a taxpayer, I'm glad that I'm not going to be contributing to his lifetime pension

/I'd love a followup in a year or two... "I could have been getting a monthly check right about now.  Instead I'm working for $12/hr at Best Buy trying to sell people even dumber than me Monster Cables"

If only he'd known the immensity of sacrifice that might be required, he would never have signed up.

I would like to thank this fellow for saving the American tax payers the cost of his pension.
 
2021-09-12 11:51:08 PM  
Leaving before the Mandate takes affect, and making a big stink about it on his way out

Likely already has his next job lined up. Maybe with former General Flynn
 
2021-09-12 11:52:04 PM  
Faking fake faker.  At least IMO.  Most likely propaganda.
 
2021-09-13 12:13:00 AM  
I'm thinking this is as real as the F-22 pilot walk out. What person is going to do that many years and walk away from the pension that close to retirement over a single damned vaccine? Military folks have been injected with all kinds of shiat that we Americans haven't been required to take.

I say this is bullshiat until dude reveals himself.
 
2021-09-13 12:28:22 AM  
I've said this before, but here it is again:
In 2007, I made an appointment with my doctor to get a prescription for antibiotics because I was talking a trip to Egypt, and everyone get eventually gets some water-borne bug. He surprised me by looking up what vaccinations I'd need for Africa, and walked into the exam room with a tray of vaccines: 7 injections and one oral. I thanked him for caring so much.

// And in the middle of the second week, I needed the antibiotic. It was Cipro, so I could have survived anthrax.

Option 1 : FAKE

or

Option 2 : PussyBoySoy Got Soft

Which is it?
 
2021-09-13 1:40:31 AM  
So some other scandal was about to destroy this guy's career and he took the anti-vaxx chickenshiat way out?
 
2021-09-13 1:57:23 AM  
Is this the one Sgt. O was talking about in another thread, where the guy was turned down for a promotion, so he was going to resign anyway before the mandate, and now he's making a big production out of it for MAGA cred?
 
2021-09-13 1:58:55 AM  
In the replies, people are pointing out that the "effective" date is blacked out, maaaaaaybe because with left-over leave and whatnot, soooooooomebody might just make it over the 20-year mark and thus still receive a full pension, baaaaasically making this an empty gesture...

Some of the comments in the Twitter thread suggest that he's just going to use his accrued leave to pad out the rest of his 20 years.

Personally, as soon as I read his first point about a "tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgement", the language he was using immediately made me wonder where he was on 1/6/21

Yes, because they need to be able to be deployed anywhere at a moment's notice.

Lt. Col. Drama Queen is just play acting, hoping it can be a launchpad to a political career.

I imagine his leave will put him at exactly 20 years.

My father left at 20 years + 6 days.

She tweeted 18 years, but in his letter he says 19, and he's taking 62 days of leave. So, yeah. He timed this so he could take a political shot on his way out the door. I won't be surprised if karma keeps him from collecting too much of his pension, though.

Yep, it would be absolutely moronic. I expect a gofundme any day now.

Who knew that the key to getting fascists out of our armed forces and police services was to just tell them to take a life saving vaccine?  Covid is the real Antifa?
 
2021-09-13 2:15:30 AM  
I wonder if they were going to give him the boot for being a jackass constantly (ucmj is pretty particular about what you can and can't say when it comes to politics in the military), but were feeling nice and let him retire to leave with an honorable discharge.

First question, is the dude even real? Second question, if he is real, did he send that letter or just let his wife type some bullshiat and put it on the internet?
 
2021-09-13 2:16:41 AM  
Sounds like someone didn't get full bird. That's what Lt Cols do... wait for a colonel spot and then quit if one isn't coming.
 
2021-09-13 2:16:42 AM  
FAKE

The 13 soldiers killed in Afghanistan happened 2 days after this letter on Aug 25.
 
2021-09-13 2:18:17 AM  
Remember when Republicans started spreading the hashtag WalkAway story about Democrats leaving their party in droves in 2018?
