I have considered this as

I have considered this as well. From my admittedly limited view of the military I have concluded that the mid and lower level leadership would role over to the most unconstitutional, illegal orders from the higher leadership. Basically I have lost all faith in military leadership and the sheep to vastily out number the liberty minded people that I would only be putting myself at risk of jail for sticking to my beliefs. I have concluded that it is impossible to "support and defend the Constitution from all enemies" while in the military because the people who attack freedom and the constitution are the ones we take orders from. I am certainly open to objection or critiques of my conclusions though because I only know what I know.

Someone with your (ROTC) background is just who I was hoping to find. So was the CO willing to disenroll the student without doing the consciencious objector route? Did it take long? I may be getting in touch with you vie PM here shortly. Thanks for the input.
