It's worth noting that CMH winner Sgt. Alvin York was also a conscientious objector, originally. Although he did eventually pick up a rifle and proceed to kill more human beings than smallpox, but he sure did save a lot of US soldiers' lives, too.

Wow. Just read his entry on wikipedia and am ashamed I never knew of him before. Quite the man. I haven't been to a theater in years, probably since Flags of our Fathers, but it may be time to see a movie come November.

I never knew this story. My family's history intersected with Private Eddie Slovik. Sadly, his story ended much, much differently.

Looking foreward to it.

Many people do not know that the Seventh Day Adventists have a long history of providing combat medics.

The Medical Cadet Corps lives on as a civilian disaster preparedness and relief agency in some areas. My son and daughter have both been active in it and in the younger versions of it (similar to cub and boy scouts) all their lives.

My grandson and granddaughter (7 & 12) are both active members of the youth organization.

Needless to say, we are all Seventh Day Adventists.
