An Army lieutenant colonel's resignation letter is gaining attention on social media after he used it to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate and what he described as the "Marxist takeover of the military."
The resignation letter by Lt. Col. Paul Douglas Hague, tweeted out by his wife and shared with Fox News, said he was resigning from the Army after 19 years of service and forgoing his pension primarily because of the Pentagon's mandatory COVID-19 vaccination order for all U.S. military service members.
"First, and foremost, I am incapable of subjecting myself to the unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgment," Hague, who is stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, wrote in the letter. "It is impossible for this so-called ‘vaccine’ to have been studied adequately to determine the long-term effects."
Hague listed multiple other reasons for his resignation, including what he views as "an ideologically Marxist takeover of the United States government at their upper echelons," and "a complete lack of confidence" in the Biden administration, which he blamed for the Kabul terrorist attack last month that killed 13 U.S. service members.
