This shocking decision by the Pentagon has left former military service members fuming

The Pentagon has made many decisions under the Biden administration that have been widely criticized.

They’ve turned the American military into quite possibly the most woke workplace in the whole country.

Out of all the terrible changes, this decision might be the most controversial amongst former soldiers.

Americans should know how our military is being treated

Under the direction of the Biden administration, the Pentagon has done more than ever to weaken America’s military standing around the world. 

Biden took office after nearly a year on from the beginning of the global pandemic and shortly after the first vaccines were released. 

His appointed leaders took it upon themselves to require this new vaccine for anyone who was serving in the U.S. armed forces.

This led to many service members retiring from the military or being fired. 

Many of them are still dealing with the fallout from that decision today. 

And Americans largely still don’t realize what these repercussions are.

New reports tell us that the Pentagon is now requiring anyone, who was fired for refusing to get the vaccine, to pay back sign-on bonuses that they were offered when joining the military.

One soldier forced to pay a little over $4,000

A former Army soldier told Fox News that he had signed a six year contract with the Army and was given a $7,000 bonus. 

Now, after serving his country for nearly half of the contract, he is being forced to pay back a prorated amount of $4,000. 

All because he was forced out of his job under Biden’s mandates.

He says he’s been dealing with a lot of mental trauma following his expulsion and that his forced exit was enough to make him lose trust in the Pentagon.

According to the soldier, he has “deployed multiple times” and this was the last thing that he expected. 

He ended up having to sell his “leave days” that he had earned but was never able to take, adding that it was “due to [him] being deployed or needing that time to prepare for the training cycle.”

The Pentagon left him with “no income” and broken “trust”

He said that having to pay back this bonus left him in “a new world with no income, and that extra bit would have been a nice buffer in my rainy day fund to keep me afloat until I was able to find new employment.”

He called the treatment he received from the Pentagon “appalling” and that leadership had “broke[n] the trust that is owed to our citizens and our volunteers. America’s sons and daughters.”

The military is facing a major human resource problem and “until efforts are made to establish trust, the recruiting and retention shortfalls will only continue.”

The soldier said that “individuals who make public statements that they are unsure what has contributed to the current recruiting and retention shortfalls need to take a look in the mirror,” adding that maybe “they should resign for the betterment of our nation.”
