Joe Biden’s Pentagon is continuing to discharge unvaccinated service members despite concerns by Republican lawmakers. According to ABC News on Thursday, 103 Marines were purged by Biden’s officials for refusing to take COVID vaccines.

The report said at least 30,000 service members remain unvaccinated across all branches of the U.S. military, despite Biden’s vaccine mandate. The Marine Corps said 95 percent of its members received at least one dose of the vaccine, which is the lowest rate of all military branches.

This comes after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) requested the Pentagon explain its actions and whether or not the discharged service members had requested any exemptions.

In a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Johnson said the vaccine mandate has been ambiguous and his department has ignored congressional requests for information. The senator also slammed Austin for discharging 27 Air Force members earlier this week for refusing the vaccine.

Johnson added the Pentagon must clarify its stance on natural immunity to COVID-19, the adverse effects of vaccines, and provide the number of unvaccinated active duty personnel. He stressed every person has the right to choose whether to get the jab.
