The US Army has sent letters asking those dismissed for refusing to get vaccinated to rejoin the Army.
You can’t make this stuff up.
The letter asks those dismissed to request a correction to the Army Discharge Review Board or the Army Board for Corrections of Military Records.

Fox News has more on the story:
The U.S. Army sent a letter to former service members dismissed for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, informing them they can request corrections of their discharge records, as the military branch reportedly struggles with recruitment three years after the onset of the pandemic.
The letter, which gained traction on social media, was addressed to former service members and notified of “new Army guidance regarding the correction of military records for former members of the Army following the rescission of the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.”
It states, “as a result of the rescission of all current COVID-19 vaccination requirements, former Soldiers who were involuntarily separated for refusal to receive the COVID-19 vaccination may request a correction of their military records from either or both the Army Discharge Review Board (ADRB) or the Army Board for Correction of Military Records (ABCMR).”
The letter, signed by Brigadier General Hope C. Rampy, of the U.S. Army Director of the Military Personnel Management Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, goes on to link to three forms where “individuals can request a correction to military personnel records, including regarding the characterization of discharge.”
This is either a sign that recruitment is low or that the military is preparing for war and needs all hands on deck.
Either way, they brought this upon themselves.
Now, we have a military that is full of soldiers who are exposed to experimental mRNA treatments.

More from Business Insider:
The new outreach to these soldiers comes amid a recruiting crisis for the US military. In 2022, the Army fell short of its recruiting goal by about 15,000 soldiers, or 25%, Army Times reported.
The Army recently revived its classic “Be All You Can Be” campaign to combat its constant decline in recruits, according to NPR.
Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth told the outlet that the percentage of young Americans who are physically fit and mentally prepared enough to join the military has been shrinking over time and is now at about 23% of people between the ages of 18 and 24.
Wormuth also said that younger people are not as interested in joining the military due to institutional skepticism.
“When you look at Generation Z, you see a lot of the declining trust in institutions,” Wormuth told NPR.
The US Army did not immediately return a request for comment from Business Insider Saturday.
Just wait until a war breaks out and all of our healthy soldiers begin dying of heart attacks.
It’s not going to look good.
