This 19-year career Army officer just resigned and forfeited his pension because he is unwilling to serve under the dystopian nightmare America is slowly turning into:
Here's the full letter with some easier-to-read text after:
This is the most crucial part of the letter, where Lt. Colonel Paul Hague lists his reasons for resigning 1 year short of retirement:
With over 19 years of service in the Army, I regretfully—yet resolutely—tender my resignation for the following reasons:
a. First, and foremost, I am incapable of subjecting myself to the unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgment. It is impossible for this so-called 'vaccine' to have been studied adequately to determine the long-term effects.
b. I cannot and will not contribute to the fall of this great nation and its people —those very Americans whom I swore to protect the liberty of at all cost. The values that our nation was founded on, has lived under and thrived under, have been utterly decimated by the current presidential administration and the leadership of the military; to include the Army. We are watching the fall of liberty at this moment. Governors and mayors forcibly locking down millions of Americans, restricting them from their unalienable right to pursue happiness; forcing them out of their jobs and their ability to participate in the most basic and fundamental rights life offers because of their personal beliefs and values. These are the same values that we service members officer our very lives to protect and now we are being used as tools to boost the numbers of vaccinated people in order to further distance and alienate those who, knowing the personal risk of the disease, have freely decided to remain unvaccinated. I cannot be used as a tool against them, as they are my daughters, my son, my siblings, and my friends. They are the Americans that deserve my support and love.
c. A complete lack of confidence in the presidential administration and secretaries directing the military—as demonstrated by the sudden and rash, at best, but pushing traitorous withdrawal from Afghanistan. The strategic decisions with regard to Afghanistan made by these people have not only unnecessarily cost the lives of 13 service members and many Afghanis, but have undoubtedly set our nation up for many more attacks both in Afghanistan and within our own borders. While the need to respond quickly to move friendly personnel out of harm's way may have been necessary, I have concerns that appropriate screening of personnel could not have taken place with the chaos and haste of the operations—potentially leading to transporting threatening terrorists to friendly nations, including the United States. This entire situation was completely preventable by following the most basic tactics taught in all military schools to every Soldier in the Army. Establish security first and remove security last. For our military leaders to overlook this at the level they operate gives reason for total lack of confidence, and even cause for concern that the best interest of the United States, Her people, and Her allies is not what is motivating those in positions of authority.
d. What I view as an ideologically Marxist takeover of the military and United States government at their upper echelons.
e. I will continue my service to this great nation and uphold the constitution of the United States, but I feel that I can no longer do this while serving in the military, as it is my belief that the military is currently being used to the contrary—neither serving this great nation, nor upholding the constitution. I would like nothing more than to continue in the Army to reach my 20 years of active federal service and retire with my pension. However, I instead will join those who have served before me in pledging my Life, my Fortune, and my Sacred Honor to continue resisting the eternal and ever-mutable forms of oppression and tyranny—both from enemies outside our nation's borders, and those within.
Hague's wife, Katie, explained more of the reasons behind her husband's decision, especially after critics pointed out that service members are required to take vaccines upon entry into the military.
"He didn't resign over a vaccine," she responded. "He said he felt the vaccine was being used as a political tool to divide and segregate Americans. He then went on to list many other reasons for his resignation – none of which have anything to do with vaccines."
Let me point out again that this officer was only a year shy of retiring after a career of service to his nation. He's giving up that retirement and opening himself up to public scorn — all in the name of doing what's right.
That's how strongly he (and I can safely assume a large percentage of our armed forces) feel about what they believe might be the end of America in the hands of tyranny.
