Yes, it is very difficult to go against the crowd and stand up for what you believe in. They loved their country and served in this way and we remember them and honour them too.
What a well-deserved honor for these men and women!
Many thanks to all who solved the puzzle and read the marker. You are correct, Morris. Those who were concientious objectors believed thou shalt not kill, and wanted to serve their country in a peaceful way.
Thanks Suzy, it is good to think of that people too.
Thank you pumpkin for this post.
Thou shalt not kill.
We needed all the help we could get. A boy named Sue and a pumpkin named Francine? The world is getting stranger every day.
good one Francine
Thank you for this puzzle. I don't think I ever knew about this group. We have much to thank them for too.
A good reminder, Punkinhaid. Thanx.
Never thought about people like this PKH, thanks for the reminder, they certainly were brave.
Thanks so much for posting.
Thanks Suzy. They played an important role also in a time when the country was united even if they disagreed.
Thank you for this post today punkie.
Ooooh, thank you, Suzy, for bringing these people to our attention! I really feel for those objectors! I could hardly argue with them!
You are quite welcomed, toto. Those who were concientious objectors were brave men as well, and did much to help the country with their civic assignments.
Thank you for this post. My father's family is Church of the Brethern and while my father joined the Army, two of his brothers served with the Red Cross in Europe. I am glad that their service is recognized.
