Cole Tubbs's insight:

I'm finding more imformation on Conscientious Objectors. Objectors are people who are trying to get out of a draft. This took place in Nebraska. The objectors were not wanting to go to WWII battle. Some Objectors were put in jail or they had to work at their homes on national stuff. Durring this time FDR's new deal program "Civilian conservation corps camps". This is what I have come to know about this Website.

Conscientious objector Joe Glenton on being jailed for refusing to fight | Conscientious Objectors | Scoop.it
Today is Conscientious Objectors Day, marking the refusal of servicemen and women around the world to perform military service. Metro talks to a former British soldier turned anti-war campaigner who was jailed for not fighting in Afghanistan.
Cole Tubbs's insight:

This is one of my sites I found that tells us about Conscientious Objectors today. This soldier is refeusing to go to war. He was jailed for not fighting in afghanistan. This story was from 1/29/14 at 11:04 AM. This will help me understand a little more about Conscientious Objectors. This war is still going on.
