18. Quakers are objectors more or less.
But they will enter non-bearing arms positions such as Medics/Hospital Corpsmen one of the most dangerous of jobs, and do so willingly.

British Quakers during WW often entered into Bomb Disposal so I have been told over the years.

Yes Quakers are Society of Friends. They have people in Iraq on missions of mercy. They do not preach.

My Grand parents were Quakers. It is the only formal religion I have ever been exposed too and no I am not a Quaker. If I were religious I would chose to be a Quaker. They walk the walk.

I do donate to The American Friends Service Committee, part sponsors of the 1,100 flag draped coffins in DC.
