The United States Army is looking to recruit unvaccinated soldiers, many of whom were kicked out of the military under Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine policy.
As war tensions increase in the Middle East, the US Army is scrambling to catch up to its recruitment goals due to a low number of troops.
As NPR reported that In 2022, the US Army missed its recruiting goal by about 15,000 soldiers — or 25%.
In a letter, Brig. Gen. Hope Rampy wrote to former Army personnel:
“Individuals who desire to apply to return to service should contact their local … recruiter.”
Brig. Gen. Rampy was essentially informing former members to new guidance that enables soldiers who were kicked out for refusing the COVID-19 shot they can now rejoin.
Under Joe Biden, the Army booted 1,903 personnel for not receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
In 2022, Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said this:
“Unvaccinated soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness.”
Now, as the world teeters on the brink of WW3, the US Army is depleted of troops due to the fiasco of Biden’s vaccine policy of 2022.
The Epoch Times reported:
“Officials have implemented changes in recruitment strategy, including targeting college graduates and giving bonuses as high as $50,000.
The new letter from Brig. Gen. Rampy and associated guidance, indicates that the strategy includes trying to bring back soldiers removed for defying the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
The guidance referred to in the letter, dated Nov. 7, says that under Ms. Wormuth’s direction, a number of steps have been taken in recent months, including removing suspensions relating to soldiers who asked for exemptions from the mandate.”
The guidance states that records of soldiers are being corrected “to remove adverse actions stemming from requests for exemption from vaccination for COVID-19,” adding that “former soldiers who were involuntarily separated for refusal to receive the vaccination can also request correction of their military records to reflect an honorable, voluntary separation from service.”
“We remain proud of the Army’s response to the pandemic and will continue to encourage vaccination against the COVID-19 variants as the surest way to ensure readiness, protect our members and guarantee mission success,” the Army said in the guidance.
It also said that “our nation faces many challenges, and developing and employing the skills and talents of prior service members can benefit individual soldiers and the Army.”
The change comes after the military withdrew its mandate forced through by Congress.
“We are not currently pursuing back-pay to service members dismissed for refusing to take the COVID vaccination,” Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder told reporters after the mandate was rescinded.
The US Army is so desperate for troops that it recently released a new recruitment video that shifted away from its “inclusiveness and diversity” stance.
The ‘End Wokeness’ X account shared the recruitment video, writing:
“Oh s***. A new US Army recruitment ad dropped, and it’s all straight white men. We are definitely going to war.”

Writer and contributing editor of conservative publication The American Mind, Peachy Keenan, also responded to the video:
“The US Army’s new recruitment ad is so cynical. After 15 years of relentless progressive brainwashing and doing a literal ‘stand down’ to root out “extremists” (ie white conservatives), they are now facing an existential recruiting crisis and must return again to seducing the children of said ‘extremists’ into fighting for their country. A country that no longer exists.”
