Add comment on:"Sergeant York"
Ted Rudow III, MA
This is something was one of the greatest problems in the military at that time, during WWII, with all these boys who didn't really want to kill, but who knew they were being trained to kill. The story about the famous Sergeant York of WW1. During the First World War they didn't have any allowance for Conscientious Objectors at all and he was a C.O., refusing to kill people because of his convictions against it. So they drafted him and under the threat of Court Martial or begin shot, they sent him to France.
