Conscientious Objector  -  Source: http:/www.sss.gov/classif.htm

    Men are not classified now. Classification is the process of determining who is available for
    military service and who is deferred or exempted. Classifications are based on each individual
    registrant's circumstances and beliefs. A classification program would go into effect when
    Congress and the President decide to resume a draft. Then, men who are qualified for induction
    would have the opportunity to file a claim for exemptions, deferments, and postponements
    from military service. Here is a list of some, though not all, classifications and what they mean:

    1-A - available immediately for military service.
    1-O Conscientious Objector- conscientiously opposed to both types (combatant and non-
    combatant) of military training and service - fulfills his service obligation as a civilian
    alternative service worker.
    1-A-O Conscientious Objector - conscientiously opposed to training and military service
    requiring the use of arms - fulfills his service obligation in a noncombatant position within the
    2-D Ministerial Students - deferred from military service.
    3-A Hardship Deferment - deferred from military service because service would cause hardship
    upon his family.
    4-C Alien or Dual National - sometimes exempt from military service.
    4-D Ministers of Religion - exempted from military service.
    Student Postponements - a college student may have his induction postponed until he
    finishes the current semester or, if a senior, the end of the academic year. A high school student
    may have his induction postponed until he graduates or until he reaches age 20. Appealing a
    Classification - A man may appeal his classification to a Selective Service Appeal Board.

Salvation Army Founder's Day

April 10 is the day on which William Booth (1829-1912), founder of the international religious and charitable movement known as The Salvation Army, was born in Nottingham, England. With the help of his wife, Catherine, he established the East London Revival Society, which soon became known as the Christian Mission and, later, The Salvation Army. Although Booth's birthday is observed to varying degrees at Salvation Army outposts around the world, a major celebration was held on the organization's centennial in 1965. More...
