The Biden administration added insult to injury for the military service members discharged for refusing the experimental COVID-19 shots.
In addition to being kicked out of the military, they’re being forced to repay their original recruitment bonuses.
This is a disgraceful act that should enrage anyone who worked to remove the COVID-19 jab requirement to enlist in the military.

One former Army soldier described his situation to Fox News:
One former Army soldier who was fired for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine last May told Fox News Digital that he would have to pay back his original signing bonus upon his termination from the military because he did not complete the commitment in his contract.
The soldier had signed a contract with the Army for six years and received a $7,000 bonus. However, because he fell short of the six years, the military notified him that he owed the government a prorated amount of slightly over $4,000. In order to pay it back, he ended up having to “sell” 60 of his unused vacation days to cover the amount owed.
This is indefensible treatment of the men and women who signed up to defend their country.
Outkick founder Clay Travis joined Fox News to discuss the shameful policy:

The clip mentions how the military continues to fall short of its recruitment goals.
The administration fails to realize that tyrannical COVID policies, such as the prior vaxx requirement, played a significant role in recruitment failure.
The former Army soldier said the recoupment of signing bonuses is the latest example of the Department of Defense falling “short on reestablishing trust for wrongdoings.”
Members of the US military that were fired for not getting the Covid Vax are now being forced to repay their signing bonuses.
This is unacceptable to say the least.
The Biden admin is the biggest disgrace in our nation's history.

American Wire News added:
The service member contends that the whole situation has affected his mental health. He asserts that the way the military treated him was a “final kick in the face.”
“I’ve deployed multiple times, and I feel like the last thing I had was selling leave days that I earned and was never able to take due to me being deployed or needing that time to prepare for the training cycle. I was about to enter 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 sadly commented.
“The Department of Defense continues to fall short on reestablishing trust for wrongdoings, and this is yet another example of that,” another service member told Fox News Digital in an interview. He stated that the recoupment of signing bonuses is the “icing on the cake” of the Pentagon’s deplorable treatment of military members.
There is a lot of anger and resentment out there and with this kind of treatment of the military, it will likely only get worse.
“The appalling treatment these individuals endured broke the trust that is owed to our citizens and our volunteers. America’s sons and daughters,” the Army member bitterly remarked in a statement.
This is among the most despicable actions the Biden administration has committed.
They continue being a disgrace to the United States.
