How can Bernie Sanders be commander in chief when he was a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War? Why was it OK to draft thousands of American men into war, where many died and came back disabled? I’m sure they were scared, too.
My husband had to serve his country; why not Sanders? Is this the man who will make the final decision about sending our children and grandchildren into battle if the occasion arises?

Editor’s note: According to a story on ABC News’ website, Bernie Sanders’ application for conscientious-objector status eventually was rejected. By then, he was too old to serve.
