One fourth or more of all Navy SEALs are in danger of being blocked by the Pentagon from being deployed after refusing to receive the Covid vaccination, a report said.
Hundreds of the SEALs who were given a deadline to get the jab this week have sought a religious exemption, their advocates told Just the News in a Sept. 20 report.
R. Davis Younts, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force reserves and a JAG lawyer who is representing several of the SEALs as a private lawyer, said the Pentagon has threatened in writing that unvaccinated SEALs, including those who get a religious exemption or already have natural immunity, will be forbidden from deploying with their teams, all but ending their special operator careers.
“My clients include several Navy SEALs who are a small part of a large group of SEALs and other military members who are being asked to choose between their faith and their ability to serve our nation,” Younts said. “They have been told that if they seek a religious accommodation, they likely will no longer be able to serve our country as Navy SEALs and been given an arbitrary deadline to comply with the vaccine mandate.”
