Unvaccinated soldiers should not expect ‘business as usual’ summer leave, says Fort Campbell general. May 12, 2021
“Fort Campbell soldiers choosing not to receive a COVID-19 vaccine could find their plan for summer leave affected, according to Commanding General JP McGee.
“It would be irresponsible of me to allow soldiers to travel unvaccinated throughout the United States and bring that back and have an impact on our soldiers, their families and our overall operational readiness. I’m sure that’s not gonna be a popular decision for some, and that’s quite alright,” McGee said.
Soldiers who are fully vaccinated should expect more freedom of travel, according to McGee’s update.”
“For those soldiers that choose, as is their right, to not take the vaccine, we will prudently apply measures of how we will make sure you are able to travel safely,” McGee said.
