Antiwar US Marine sentenced to prison, bad discharge
A prisoner of conscience. A modern-day Franz Jägerstatter? I wonder if he knew what Bishop John-Michael (Botean) wrote about the war. Comments: his claimed homosexuality is irrelevant (to be fair to his accusers, it could be just a dodge to try to get out), and to give the other side credit, joining the military not expecting to be deployed wasn't very smart of him. Then again, if the US government did what it was supposed to and used the military to defend America, deployment wouldn't have been a conscience problem!
