Twenty years is the holy grail in the military in terms of retirement benefits
So, what would it take for a career officer on the threshold of two decades of service to just walk away within a year of millions of dollars of benefits?
We can ask Lt. Colonel Paul Douglas Hague that question because that is exactly what he just did.
According to his resignation letter, Hague has been serving in the United States Army for more than 19 years.
This week, Hague announced he is resigning his commission, about a year away from his full retirement benefits.
Hague is leaving because of the “unethical, immoral and tyrannical” vaccine mandate of Joe Biden.
Based on the tweet below, it seems as though he has the full support of his wife, Katie…

Hague’s resignation was about far more than not wanting to take the jab, however.
The career officer cited a “lack of confidence” in Biden as the commander-in-chief.
After the botched withdrawal in Afghanistan, it hard to fault his argument.
There is some rather significant news breaking on this front regarding vaccines in the military and what is about to be done to our troops.
The general order on vaccines has already been issued, but what is not in that order is how the troops will be disciplined (the order only states that they can be relieved of duty and discharged).
In all likelihood, soldiers who refuse to take the jab, regardless of time in service, will be dishonorably discharged, as this is technically the refusal of a direct order from a superior.
Come December, this order will come to fruition, and I would suspect you will see outrage around this country from our troops the likes we have never seen before.
