You Decide!!

IMMUNIZATION WAIVERS

Many active duty, Guard and Reservists (officers and enlisted) have made it known they plan to refuse the Anthrax and possibly other vaccinations. This must be a personal choice,  we encourage you to investigate whatever decision you make. There are those who have already declined the shots. They went to the Judge Advocate's office and utilized   the "religious and moral objection" route. This will automatically make you ineligible for world-wide status. Perhaps there is no more stronger statement that we could make than to have a half a million of our military which can serve only in CONUS.

I am not encouraging you to disobey a direct order. however, the Pentagon has lied to us for the last six and a half years, why are we to believe they are telling the truth now. Read the information that exists on Anthrax with regard to safety and efficacy and then make an informed decision yourself.
