FEARS RISE OVER EXECUTIVE ORDER RECALLING RETIRED SERVICE MEMBERS TO ACTIVE DUTY
OCTOBER 20, 2017
The order was announced by the White House and Pentagon on Friday was originally reported to address a shortage of combat pilots USA Today reported. However additional orders have been reported to ALL branches especially the Army and Marine Corps. Trump’s executive order lifted the number cap and did away with all age and retirement or seperation requirements. In time of war or National emergency Trump can now legally recall pretty much anyone the military wants with certain MOS’s given priority REGARDLESS OF THE REASON FOR SEPERATION OR LENGTH OF SEPARATION! USA Today investigative reports that a MOS “fill sheet” has been sent out requiring recall of many MOS’s from anti-aircraft, anti-missle, Ranger, Special forces, Water Treatment, Tank crews, Engineers and other specialist MOS that’s in need for a possible full recall event. The Admiralty of the Navy has also confirmed recall orders for 14 Navy MOS duties. It seems that the inevitability of war is upon us.
The following is a copy of the actual order released by the White House today.
