Well in our military it's possible to leave your job for ethic/religious/morale at any time (of yourse you have to give reasons) - and i think it's good this way. I was suprised that it isn't possible in the US military.

So he submitted a conciencious objector application but then withdrew under advice from an unnamed individual.

Then he applied for non-combat duty but was denied. Then reapplied for conciencious objector but this time was refused because it was in opposition to a particular war.

It seems like a beurocratic fuckup with both sides responsible, he shouldn't have withdrew his first application only to retry after failing on a reassignment application, it really looks like he was trying to get out of his obligation.

Uh - right now I say that this was a mistake but I would prefer to see the full facts of the case before making any final judgement.

It is JUST NOT RIGHT to announce your retirement just when you are being deployed for a WAR.
