During basic training, Air Force recruit Michael Thurman began to have misgivings about the war in Iraq — and all war. By the time he was assigned to his first duty station, he realized that he could not continue working for the war machine. He applied for conscientious objector status, and after working with Courage to Resist, he was discharged from the Air Force eight months later.
