US Army Spc. Fort Drum, New York public affairs specialist and photojournalist from West Palm Beach, Florida. Applied for conscientious objector status in January 2003 and spoke out at the February 15, 2003 anti-war rally in New York City.
“I love the Army, and I love the lifestyle. But I can’t see the justification in this.”
“I’m opposed to taking the life of another human being. I understand there are situations where we react to human instincts and in self-defense, but to aggressively and collectively destroy another human life, my conscience won’t allow me to do it.”
