Thank you to every American who has served our country through military service, including those who are about to get kicked out and their veterans benefits threatened by the Biden administration for refusing to get vaccinated.

So this extra shout out goes to the congressional Republicans including Doug Lamborn, who are pushing legislation to protect VA benefits for our military men and women who earned it.

About 10,000 members of the Air Force failed to meet to the Nov. 1 deadline for getting vaccinated.

Marines and the Navy have a Nov. 28 deadline, the Army’s next in December, and the National Guard and reservists have until June.

So, if the guard and reservists got the vaccine now, they’d just have to get a booster again before their deadline.

It’s unclear if the mandate means the military will have to get the vaccine every six months when the protection wanes.
