This book is a compendium of the attitude of the United States Armed Forces toward the conscientious objector (C.O.). It includes the portions of US military and Selective Service regulations that deal with the C.O. Included is the procedure for the C.O. to acquire a release from military service and what he should expect in the process. Also in case of a future conscription, the procedure to acquire an exemption as a C.O. is provided along with the requirement of alternative service. Also provided are a sample copy of the US Army and Selective Service forms that deal with acquiring an exemption or discharge from military service. The author, Daniel H. Shubin, has been an advisor 25 years for young people facing the decision of military service. He was a conscientious objector during the Viet-Nam War and performed alternative service. Shubin has also written several books on Christian church history, Bible interpretation, and a book on Christian pacifism.
