True or False: a "conscientious objector" is a person who refuses to participate in any war for moral reasons.
The American military only classifies one as a conscientious objector if one is opposed to all war for any reason, and only on religious grounds. In other words, if you believe a particular war is immoral, that doesn't count. If you would fight in a different war somewhere else or over a different reason, you would not be considered a conscientious objector. If you objected to a specific war or any war on any grounds except a complete religious objection to all war, you would not be considered a conscientious objector. If you were willing serve in a non-combat role, such as a support unit or as a clerk, or even as a medic, you might be able to do that. On the other hand, many documented cases exist where draft boards or military authorities have denied such requests.
