Study Military Conscientiously BEFORE You Join

Sadly, this fellow merely accepted the public relations tales:
In December 2013 he was deployed to Camp Hovey in South Korea, 10 miles from the border with North Korea. He was attached as a medic to the 4-7 Cavalry. He began to hear disturbing stories about the wars in the Middle East, not the glorified stories spun out by recruiters, the media or the entertainment industry, but stories about whole families being blown up or gunned down by U.S. troops in the streets of Iraq and Afghanistan. He lived among soldiers who were suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Many were drinking heavily. He listened to them talk about being prescribed anti-depressants by Army doctors and then being redeployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. He may have been a medic, but he was required to carry a weapon and to use it in combat. He knew that for him, to do so would be impossible. 
I was told by a naval officer who exited the military when he realized standing military was not tenable he told his superior office he wanted out, and in turn as told to keep it a secret and he could get out, but if he told anyone outside the process he would be held in and made an example of.

The USA military truly feat conscientious objectors.
