The U.S. Army has sent letters to former members who were discharged for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, offering to correct their records and providing information on how to request a correction.

The Army has been facing a major recruiting crisis, and the letter does not explicitly ask former members to return to service.

“As a result of the rescission of all current COVID-19 vaccination requirements, former Soldiers who were involuntarily separated for refusal to receive the COVID-19 vaccination may request a correction of their military records from either or both the Army Discharge Review Board (ADRB) or the Army Board for Correction of Military Records (ABCMR),” it reads.

“Individuals who desire to apply to return to service should contact their local Army, US Army Reserve (USAR) or Army National Guard (ARNG) recruiter for more information,” it adds.

“As part of the overall COVID mandate recession process mandated by Congress, the Army mailed the letters following Veterans Day weekend to approximately 1,900 individuals who had previously been separated for refusal to obey the mandatory COVID vaccination order,” Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Ruth Castro stated.

“The letter provides information to former servicemembers on how to request a correction of their military records,” Castro added.

The military in general has been going through a major recruiting crisis, and the armed forces are facing the most challenging recruiting environment in a generation.

“America’s military faces the most challenging recruiting environment since the All-Volunteer Force was established in 1973, driven in part by the post-COVID labor market, intense competition with the private sector, and a declining number of young Americans interested in uniformed service,” a 2022 memo reads.

“Currently, only 23 percent of 17- to 24-year-old Americans are fully qualified to serve.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin officially rescinded the COVID-19 vaccination order for service members on Jan. 10, 2023.
