Bernie Sanders applied for 'conscientious objector' status during Vietnam, campaign confirms

Bernie Sanders Applied for 'Conscientious Objector' Status During Vietnam, Campaign Confirms“As a college student in the 1960s he was a pacifist,” Michael Briggs, campaign spokesman added in an email. “My question as a Vietnam veteran is: How on earth could a person claiming to be a conscientious objector become the commander in chief of the most powerful military in the world?” questioned the column author Steve Wikert.
