Tactical Withdrawal From the Military

I was listening to a former Naval Officer who had left the military after experiencing conscientious objections stepping onto a nuclear submarine.   He shared an interesting observation:  if you are in the military, keep your conscientious objection secret except for the highest ranking officer you can reach on your own.  To that officer and no other express your conscientious objection.  If so, it is likely you can gain a honorable discharge from the military.

On the other hand, if you make it known with the military you want out on conscientious objection grounds, expect to be denied and a trip to prison if you push it.  The idea is the military will let you go, but they do not want anyone else in the military to know.  Can't afford too many people to catch on?
