Becoming a Conscientious Objector (Clip 3 of 6)

In the third clip associated with the Soldiers of Conscience lesson plan, Aidan Delgado, an Iraq War veteran, talks about becoming a conscientious objector and its repercussions. Meanwhile, veteran Jaime Isom says that when one joins the military, one has made an agreement to put their country first. Students should discuss why so many people in Aidan's company reacted with hostility when they learned that he was seeking to become a conscientious objector.
