Navy commander gets relief for ‘Failure to comply with lawful orders’

A naval officer has been removed from his post on a destroyer due to his refusal to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

On Friday, a Navy spokesman announced that Cmdr. Lucian Kins was sacked as the executive officer of the USS Winston Churchill for “failing to comply with lawful order”, according to USNI News.

“On December 10, 2021, Commander, 14th Surface Squadron, Captain Ken Anderson, relieved Cmdr. Lucian Kins as executive officer of USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81) due to loss of confidence in Kins’ ability to carry out his duties,” said Lieutenant Cmdr. Jason Fischer said in a statement.

Another Navy source said the move was due to Kins’ refusal to receive a vaccine or submit a COVID-19 test. Kins applied for a religious exemption but was rejected by the Navy, Fox News reported.

The ship’s tactical and planning officer, Lieutenant Colonel Cmdr. Han Yi, will take over as chief executive officer until a replacement is found. Kins was reassigned to squadron personnel.

In August, the Pentagon announced that Vaccines against covid-19 shall be mandatory for all members of the United States military. The Navy requires all active-duty and reserve sailors to be fully vaccinated by November 28.

As Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Friday, each branch is responsible for the logistics of carrying out the mission.

“Those types of actions are not handled centrally by the department at this level,” he said. “Secretaries and service chiefs are responsible for how they implement mandatory vaccine requirements.”

Are COVID-19 vaccine mandates unconstitutional?

For service members who are fully immunized, it may not be long before they need to undergo a new round of mandatory immunizations. Kirby said the Pentagon is considering whether to go ahead and request a COVID-19 vaccine.

“There are active discussions here in the department at the policy level about additional injections and whether those mandates should be implemented,” he said, according to the report. Epoch Times. “No final decision has been made on that.”

According to Navy data, 5,731 sailors have yet to meet the initial requirement.

The Times reports that while 2,705 active-duty sailors have requested a religious exemption from duty, none have been approved. However, the Navy signed off on “seven medical waivers, 326 temporary medical waivers, and 124 administrative waivers.”

Brave members of our armed forces do not sign up to defend their country without understanding the enormous personal risks that come with it.

As health reporter Alex Berenson did note, it is quite remarkable that first responders who have worked throughout the pandemic are rejecting vaccines at exceptionally high rates.

police, nurses, fireman and EMTs probably understand risk better than the average person; The same can be said of the men and women of our military, who have dedicated their lives to defending their homeland.

Furthermore, is it safe for our nation to threaten too many service members with expulsion to fight a virus that has been shown to be significantly less dangerous to healthy young people?

At what point are we sacrificing national security for vaccines? Is the virus really more deadly than draining our armed forces?

We should not violate the medical autonomy of these thousands of Americans – let alone the constitutional rights they have been sworn to protect, even with their own lives!

This mission is a disgrace to all that our nation stands for and the very flag that the armed forces fight to defend.
