127. conscientious objector...service still required?
Dems Will win, you speak of being a CO yourself. I've been reading all about the mandatory draft for people between the ages of 18 and 26; the mandatory two years of's all very scary. I will be 25 in 2005, supposedly not likely to be picked. My brother and sister on the other hand will be in the prime ages. My family is pacifists. We will not fight. We will not fire a gun. And yet the conscientious objector status still means we would have to serve in in the hospital wards during the war? I need to know more about this, we need information. Can you help me to clarify this?

In addition, I had read something years ago that since WWII, there is a law on file that not every child in a family can be sent to child must be left to take care of the parents. True? Where can I read up on this?
