If one is a conscientious objector he would not enlist in the first place.
How sad it is that a few men (and women) only want the benefits the service provides but refuse to honor their commitment when called upon.
Perhaps there should be a clause in the sign-up agreement that states that they will accept all pay, benefits, etc. the government offers but will only follow orders and serve their country when it pleases them!
