Hundreds of marines have already been discharged for not getting the COVID vaccine.
That brought the number to 169.
Many more could end up being discharged over this.
Now, unvaccinated marines are speaking out.
They are warning that what the Biden administration is doing is a “political pruge.”
U.S. Marines are being “crushed” by President Bidenâ€™s COVID-19 vaccine mandate as thousands face dismissal for their continued refusal to get the shot, several active-duty Marines told Fox News Digital.
Several Marines who refuse to get the shot were granted anonymity by Fox News Digital, so they could speak freely. They said they are witnessing a “political purge” by the Biden administration that is forcing out the militaryâ€™s “best and brightest” over deeply held beliefs they say are protected by the First Amendment.
“Thereâ€™s something fundamentally wrong at this point with our nationâ€™s leadership,” said a major with more than 17 years of active service. “We are facing an unconstitutional edict that I think is very targeted as a political purge, taking out some of the best and brightest soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians from the Space Force.”
A lieutenant colonel with more than 19 years of active service said it appears that the military, specifically the Marine Corps, is discharging service members “as fast as they can and as brutally as they can, damaging every Marine as much as they can on the way out.”
“The one message I got from the colonel above me was: â€˜Tread very carefully, this is political, you will be crushed like an ant.â€™ And he told me that because he cares about me,” the lieutenant colonel said. “Do I want to continue serving in an institution that crushes people for bringing up reasonable points in defending their faith?”
