Out of Commission Destroyer CO Assigned to Shore Duty, Lawyers in COVID-19 Vaccination Suit Say

Recommended Posts

The commander of Arleigh-Burke guided-missile destroyer in a legal battle with the Navy over refusing the COVID-19 vaccine on religious grounds has been temporarily assigned to shore duty, his lawyers say.

The service wants to remove the officer from command of the East Coast warship over his stance on the vaccine but was blocked by a Florida federal judge. Navy officials have testified that the ship is “out of commission” and undeployable with the commander in charge.
