Gov. Reynolds, four other Governors send letter to DoD requesting withdraw of vaccine mandate for National Guard Members 
Tue, 12/14/2021

Today, Gov. Reynolds and four other governors sent a letter to the Department of Defense requesting the withdraw of vaccine mandate directives to National Guard members that are in Title 32 duty status.  

The U.S. Supreme Court has for decades affirmed that the National Guard is under the command and control of the Governor of each state until those members are called up to active-duty status under Title 10. 

Therefore, Gov. Reynolds is requesting the federal government abide by the law, allowing her to retain authority over the Iowa National Guard members and allow them personal choice without penalization of their status with the National Guard.  

“The federal government continues to overreach further into the lives of Americans and especially those serving our country and protecting our very freedoms,” said Gov. Reynolds. “These are the very men and women who have selflessly devoted their lives to protecting us and responding to major disasters and times of crisis at the drop of a hat to provide peace and comfort, and now the federal government is giving them an ultimatum to get the vaccine or be separated from serving their country. It’s unconscionable to think the government will go so far as to strip these honorable men and women of the nation’s top duties if they don’t comply. They protect the very freedoms that the federal government apparently doesn’t believe they too deserve.”  

The letter was sent to Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III by Governor Mark Gordon, Wyoming; Governor Mike Dunleavy, Alaska; Governor Kim Reynolds, Iowa; Governor Tate Reeves, Mississippi; and Governor Pete Ricketts, Nebraska. The deadline for U.S. National Guard members to be vaccinated was Dec. 2. According to reports, nearly 50,000 military members across all branches refuse to get vaccinated at this time. “

REMEMBER THAT THESE “VACCINES” ARE UNAPPROVED AND HENCE FORCED VACCINATION OF MILITARY IS ILLEGAL, PERIOD. THE VACCINES WILL REMAIN UNAPPROVED UNLESS THE GOVERNMENT GIVES THEM FULL LIABILITY SHIELDING. Comirnaty-BioNTech was apparently approved in the US, because it isn’t available. Meanwhile, Pfizer-BioNTech batches seem to expire in February and expiration date extended by three months.


LEADERSHIP MATTERS, AS SEEN WITH THE DELUSIONAL NUT-JOB WHO OCCUPIES THE NEW YORK GOVERNOR’S SEAT. EITHER SHE MISUNDERSTANDS PAPAL INFALLIBILITY OR SHE THINKS SHE IS POPE – EITHER WAY SHE THINKS HER OPINIONS SUPERSEDE THE US CONSTITUTION. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/12/15/us-supreme-court-mandate-injunction-dissent-reveals-ny-governor-as-dangerously-delusional-governor-appears-to-believe-that-pope-francis-supersedes-the-us-constitution/

The Honorable Lloyd J. Austin III Secretary of Defense U.S. Department of Defense 1000 Defense Pentagon Washington, DC 20301-1000

Dear Secretary Austin,

We write to request you withdraw part of your and the Service Secretaries’ directives to National Guard members in their Title 32 duty status concerning the COVID-19 vaccine. We acknowledge your right to establish readiness standards for the National Guard for activation into a Title 10 status. However, directives dictating whether training in a Title 32 status can occur, setting punishment requirements for refusing to be COVID-19 vaccinated, and requiring separation from each state National Guard if unvaccinated are beyond your constitutional and statutory authority.

The U. S. Supreme Court has for decades affirmed in cases, such as in Perpich v. Department of Defense, 496 U.S. 334 (1990), that the National Guard is under the command and control of the Governor of each state unless those members are called to active service under Title 10. The Militia Clauses found in Article 1, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution clearly state, “…reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.” Further, 10 U.S. Code § 12401 states, “Members of the Army National Guard of the United States and the Air National Guard of the United States are not in active Federal service except when ordered thereto under law.” Finally, Congress has required National Guard members attend unit training assemblies (drills) under 32 U.S.C. §502(f), and the statute does not say ‘unless they fail to meet all readiness standards.’

For these reasons, we request reconsideration of the directives from your office and the Service Secretaries concerning National Guard members in their Title 32 duty status.


Governor Mark Gordon State of Wyoming
Governor Mike Dunleavy State of Alaska
Governor Kim Reynolds State of Iowa
Governor Tate Reeves State of Mississippi
Governor Pete Ricketts State of Nebraska
