You’ll have to excuse my verbal irony in the title of this comment. But according to a new release as of 2153, 14 July 2009, the answer is that no you don’t have to deploy, you get your orders cancelled apparently.
Soldier Refuses to Deploy; Says Obama Isn’t President
Tuesday July 14, 2009
I love a good conspiracy theory.
U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook is refusing to deploy to Afghanistan because he doesn’t acknowledge President Obama as the rightful president of the United States. Cook is being represented by Orly Taitz, who is also arguing Alan Keyes’ birth certificate case against Obama’s presidency.
Chelsea Schilling, Bombshell: Orders revoked for soldier challenging prez
‘Military has directly responded, saying that Obama is illegitimate’, July 14, 2009, 9:53 pm Eastern.
A U.S. Army Reserve major from Florida scheduled to report for deployment to Afghanistan within days has had his military orders revoked after he argued that he should not be required to serve under a president who has not proven his legitimacy for office.
His attorney, Orly Taitz, confirmed to WND the military has rescinded his impending deployment orders.
“We won! We won before we even arrived,” she said with excitement. “It means that the military has nothing to show for Obama. It means that the military has directly responded by saying Obama is illegitimate – and they cannot fight it. Therefore, they are revoking the order!”
She continued, “They just said, ‘Order revoked.’ No explanation. No reasons – just revoked.”
I wonder what piece of paper the major is going to get in the mail next? A DFR notice? An administrative discharge GOS? Or maybe nothing?
