Peter has an excellent post on the downward spiral this country is taking starting with its armed forces. You can read it here.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is set to announce Friday that all 1.3 million active-duty US forces are required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, a report said Wednesday.

The decision comes days after President Biden said federal employees must either get vaccinated against the virus or submit to regular testing and observe social distancing requirements, according to Fox News.

The Pentagon would join the Department of Veterans Affairs in mandating coronavirus vaccinations for key personnel as the number of cases surges nationwide due to the Delta variant.

Because none of the vaccines have received final approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Austin must request a waiver from President Biden to make the vaccines mandatory for active-duty forces.
