(Republican Insider) – According to a new report from WND, a board made up of officers in the Navy has officially ruled against the military branch in a battle currently going down involving a lieutenant who has refused to get the coronavirus vaccine and has had his career threatened for sticking to his principles and avoiding the jab.
The decision came from a board composed of three Naval officers for Lt. Bill Moseley. The board came to the conclusion that Moseley did not commit misconduct by refusing not to take the shot that was mandated by the military for COVID.
“Although this [is] only one case of thousands and we have many more clients facing prosecution by the military,” lawyer R. Davis Younts went on to say in a statement, “we are encouraged that the truth was revealed in this board, and we hope this ground-breaking case sends a strong message to the Department of Defense.”
The lawyer put out a statement after the board made their decision last week in favor of his client.
“Younts successfully argued that the order for military members to receive the experimental COVID 19 injection was not a lawful order,” WND reported. “That was because the military had not made any FDA-approved version of the shot available.”
“In fact, virtually all of the shots mandated by various government and private organizations during most of the fight against the pandemic were classified experimental,” the report continued.
“Lt. Moseley opposes the vaccine for religious reasons and could have submitted a religious accommodation request, however when he learned that the Navy and the other services intended to implement a blanket denial policy, he began to prayerfully consider other options,” the lawyer’s statement then said.
“After consulting the legal and medical experts, he became convinced that as an officer he had an obligation to take a stand against the unlawful order and be a voice for thousands of enlisted sailors. Lt. Moseley risked his 22-year career and his military retirement because of his faith and his commitment to his oath of office as a military leader,” the statement continued.
Just the News referred to the decision from the board as a “stinging rebuke to the Pentagon.”
Their report then stated, “Any service member who has been in the military for more than six years is entitled to the board for due process. In the Navy, the board’s recommendation on whether to retain or separate (another term for firing) a member of the service is binding.”
The 3-0 decision from the board was that Moseley’s failure to obey the vaccine mandate order to take the shot did not count as misconduct and he should be allowed to remain in the Navy.
Moseley himself enlisted in the Navy back in 2000, having reached the rank of Gunners Mate Chief Petty Officer — what a mouthful — before earning a commission in 2014. He’s served in both Bahrain and Guam.
No person should be forced to take an experimental drug and put something foreign into their bodies if it isn’t something they want. This is about personal autonomy, especially in the realm of health care. The government is clearly overstepping its bounds, as it wants to do anytime the opportunity presents itself.
