Navy won’t deploy warship after judge stops dismissal of its commander for refusing the coronavirus vaccine

Recommended Posts

The Navy commander, identified only by his rank in court papers, filed a lawsuit in the Middle District of Florida in October with several other service members seeking relief from the military’s coronavirus vaccine mandate on religious grounds.
