Conscientious Objector information
There are two types of Conscientious Objectors in the United States military. They are all servicemembers who have religious, moral, or ethical grounds for not participating as a combatant in war. Some conscientious objectors have accepted non-combatant roles and remained in the military. Others find that their beliefs do not allow them to continue to be a member of a military which supports war-as even noncombatant roles are crucial to the military war effort.
Great resources for those seeking more information about becoming and supporting Conscientious Objectors.
