Fort Hood’s top headquarters unit — III Corps — announced Monday that 17 soldiers under III Corps command were discharged from the Army last month for refusing to take the coronavirus vaccine.
The discharges were III Corps-wide, which includes units at four different installations: Fort Hood, Fort Carson, Colorado, Fort Bliss, Texas, and Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
Each of the soldiers were released under a general discharge. According to Army regulations, recipients of a general discharge will receive entitlement to benefits such as VA medical and dental services, VA home loans and burial in national cemeteries, but they will not receive educational benefits under either the Montgomery or Post-9/11 GI Bill like those with an honorable discharge. In May, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced legislation to upgrade those discharges to honorable.
As of May 27, the Army as a whole has discharged 742 active-duty soldiers for refusing the vaccine, according to military.com.
Of the 17 III Corps soldiers discharged in May, three were sergeants, 13 were specialists and one was a private first class. One other III Corps soldier, a specialist, was discharged in April.
Questions to Fort Hood officials about how many of the 17 soldiers discharged last month were from Fort Hood, and how many total Fort Hood soliders have been discharged for COVID vaccine refusal were not answered by publication time.
In August 2021, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin requested President Joe Biden make the vaccines mandatory for all members of the Department of Defense. The Army’s deadline for soldiers to receive the vaccine was Dec. 15, 2021, unless a request had been made for a medical or religious exemption.
In February, the Army announced it will immediately begin discharging soldiers who have refused to get the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine, putting more than 3,300 service members at risk of being thrown out.
Roughly 97% of all Army soldiers have gotten at least one shot. More than 3,000 have requested medical or religious exemptions.
The Army was the final military service to lay out its discharge policy for vaccine refusers and begin the process for discharging soldiers.
According to data released by the Army in February, more than 3,300 soldiers have refused to get the vaccine.

The same 17 members have previously received the anthrax vaccine along with all other required vaccines in civilian life and military life. All 17 couldnt tell you whats on their public or miltary vaccine cards. Military service is not a birth right. Comply or goodbye.
Amazing how many of you out there are not taking the vaccine because ‘you don’t know what’s in it.’ Well, I have a bulletin for you. None of us know what’s in anything that we inject, consume, or drink. When one enters the military, there are a wide range of vaccines administered and no one knows what they are made of or whether valid testing/research for use has been conducted. You people are just politicizing the vaccine. Of course, when there are people drinking bleach…..ridiculous. Those 17 people deserved to be discharged. I actually had a childhood friend who is a nurse who told me that I would be flying at night cause the vaccine was made from bat DNA. Ridiculous…if you eat a hot dog…you will consume anything.
But.. we DO know what's in it. Are you working for Pharma. WE DO KNOW its loaded with graphene, AIDS, hep, cancer, parasites and nano bots. Maybe you misread my 1st comment and read it as.. look at all the goodies they gave us in the vax??
So many individuals with no qualifying credentials continuing to cling to the mantra of their "party."
Never in the history of health, has a shot ever been mandated against the law as this one has. How they were allowed to get away with this was the age old way to get anyone to do anything against their will and that is through FEAR! This shot is NOT a vaccine! It has NOT been tested! It has never been approved! It is deadly and for the purpose of depopulating the Earth as the globalists indoctrinating the New World Order has planned for decades. Covid is just a flu, a bug, but properly handled and exploited, it can be made to seem like certain death to ALL. Protocols demanded by the CDC in the hospitals caused many deaths and suffering to make the bug seem worse! False reportings, false tests, exacerbated the appearances. This false pandemic was well orchestrated.
Just now we are seeing hidden injury's showing up. We are finding out how the CDC and WHO and the government lied about the injuries and deaths that went unreported.
No, I did not get the shot and never will. I will now live long enough to see the horrific future these evil creatures have in store for mankind. As the bible says'- The living shall envy the dead!
Does anyone think this is a good idea. I'm not vaccinated nor do I wear a mask. Why force something on people who have documented concerns without product liability. This is absurd. People are having health issues and they are dropping like flies.
Not mentioned is why they refused? Did they know something the others didn't know.. such as ..
