Good evening. As many of you know, I work at a military installation in Indiana, a member of the federal employee workforce. With all of the talk of vaccine mandates everyone has been on edge. Many are really upset (I mean REALLY UPSET, I mean 4-letter word rantings UPSET), but the vast majority are scared of what is happening not only in the world, this nation, but locally as well.
Today, members of the military here received their “marching orders” sort to speak. What follows is the directive that came down from local leadership. It’s been edited to eliminate names and items that could be considered sensitive information, but I think you’ll get the jist of what is happening to our military members:
To ensure we meet expectations directed from higher headquarters and get members vaccinated, I want to have a gathering in the afternoon on Sunday. This assembly will be an answer and question session for all to participate in, and we will answer any questions not covered previous to today. We will also cover a written order that will be issued this Sunday to members present who have not been vaccinated. In addition, those who are presently undecided must now decide whether to volunteer to get either the J&J or Moderna vaccines. If military members want to retire instead of getting the vaccine, they need to submit an application for retirement by COB Sunday with a retirement date of December 2nd. They will be excused from duty until then. If any date later than 2 Dec is chosen, the vaccination is required.
We want to guarantee our members know we value their health and welfare. They must also understand we are a military organization. We have been given an order and will carry that out.
So this was mandated to the military folks at the base.
As I said, I cut out some verbiage so it won’t give away my location or the military installation I work at, but the message is clear; you either get the jab or you’re out. It’s that simple. This is the world that Biden has created. He said he would not mandate vaccinations, and he lied!
The civilian employees like me will likely get our marching orders some time next week, but I fully expect to be out of a job by the first part of December if my religious exemption is not granted, which I’m hearing is likely to be the case. I will not quit, however, I will force them to fire me. That way I can get reinstated once this madness ends, if it ever does.
So that’s the nature of my prayer request. I honestly don’t know what the Lord has for me, but I’m ready to grasp it. Yes, I’m nervous about what the future will hold, but I’m not afraid. I’ve had to start over in life 3 or 4 times already, I can do it again. Thank you for your prayers.
