    They could draft you, send you to war, but they can’t force you to kill. They usually become the medics.

    I’ve often seen WWII news footage of GIs with bullhorns directing convoy traffic or supplies movement on invasion beaches. In fact, the TV show Pawn Stars recently showed someone trying to sell a WWII portable loudspeaker system used by beachmasters.

    As for the draft, it’s elimination is one of the greatest advances in American freedom since the Civil War. A free country doesn’t have to force people to defend it. (This assumes the war is really in our defense and the politicians don’t prevent the generals from winning it.)

    To my mind, one of the most interesting, but least known, stories to come out of WWII is Desmond Doss, a Seventh-Day Adventist who was a conscientious objector and became a combat medic in the Pacific. He won a Medal of Honor for his actions on Okinawa April-May 1945.

    How many countries would give their highest award for bravery in combat to a conscientious objector, someone who refused to kill, or even carry a weapon?
