Senator Eric Schmitt is seeking answers from the U.S. Army on behalf of former service members who were discharged for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.

Nearly 2,000 service members were let go, and the Army has offered them the option to correct their discharge and rejoin.

Schmitt’s letter to the Secretary of the Army inquired about backpay, reinstatement, and protection of religious freedoms for re-enlisting soldiers. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

He also questioned the Army’s efforts to ask these members to rejoin, highlighting recruitment challenges.

“These mandates certainly harmed our military’s readiness and tragically destroyed the careers of thousands of brave volunteers,” Schmitt said.

“These members have faced negative implications for veterans benefits and employment outside of the military. It is likely that most of those former members will never return to the military and serve our nation.”

“As with all congressional correspondence, we will respond directly to the author of the letter,” Bryce S. Dubee wrote.

“As part of the overall COVID mandate rescission process mandated by Congress, the Army this month mailed the letters to approximately 1,900 individuals who had previously been separated.”

“The letter provides information to former service members on how to request a correction of their military records.”

The Army stated that they will respond directly to the senator.

The letters sent to former service members were part of a congressionally-mandated process for COVID mandate rescission.

Thousands of troops unsuccessfully sought religious exemptions from the vaccination.
