Quantico, Virginia. MJA is proud to announce a recent victory on behalf of our client, a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. The Sergeant was relieved for cause as a Marine Security Guard, given an adverse fitness report, and taken to an administrative separation board for allegedly violating Article 92, UCMJ, by not receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
During the administrative hearing, MJA admitted extensive evidence showing that it was impossible for the Marine to comply with the COVID-19 vaccine order because the only two FDA approved vaccines—COMIRNATY AND SPIKEVAX—are not available to service members. Based on this evidence, the Board determined there was NO BASIS for misconduct and retained the Marine on active duty. Congratulations to this well-deserving client!
