Convention of States!


Navy defies Pentagon, board unanimously retains 22-year officer who refused Covid-19 vaccine

Published in Blog on June 02, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Navy Lt. Billy Moseley has been an officer for 22 years and took a courageous stand against the military’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate by outright refusing to comply with the order, ultimately proving to be a worthy battle.

Moseley could have decided to retire from the Navy or he could have attempted to receive a religious exemption. But, the brave American was willing to take on the fight for personal freedom within his own military – so he did neither.

He took his concern to the administrative separation board after learning "that the Navy and the other services intended to implement a blanket denial policy," according to a press release from his attorney, R. Davis Younts. 

He “became convinced that as an officer he had an obligation to take a stand against the unlawful order and be a voice for thousands of enlisted Sailors," a press release stated. 

The Navy had a choice to make: fire Moseley for not complying with the order or retain him.

Shockingly, the board unanimously agreed 3-0 that Moosely did not commit misconduct and should be retained in the Navy. 

This decision was in direct opposition to the Biden administration and the Pentagon, who have mandated the Covid-19 vaccine for all military personnel. Defying your superiors in any work situation, especially the U.S. military where discipline is always expected, is such an incredibly rare and risky move.

Clearly, the military personnel thought the federal government was seeking too much control over their lives and bodies. Convention of States Action thinks so too. At COS, we aim to limit the power of the federal government so that unfair power abuses on the part of politicians, such as vaccine mandates, cannot continue. 

The vaccine mandates have created huge rifts among Americans, but the tensions behind the scenes within these branches of the government are undoubtedly escalating with this decision. Moseley showed his courage to fight for what he felt was an injustice and so did the three board members who went against Biden's system as well.

Convention of States not only seeks to limit the size and jurisdiction of the federal government, but COS also aims to impose term limits and fiscal restraints on Washington bureaucrats so the people’s liberties can be protected. All of this can be done through an Article V convention thanks to our founding fathers.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
