Conscientious Objector Classifications
Men are not classified now. Classification is the process of determining who is available for military service
and who is deferred or exempted. Classifications are based on each individual registrant's circumstances
and beliefs. A classification program would go into effect when Congress and the President decide to
resume a draft. Then, men who are qualified for induction would have the opportunity to file a claim for
exemptions, deferments, and postponements from military service. Here is a list of some, though not all,
classifications and what they mean:

1-A - available immediately for military service.
1-O Conscientious Objector- conscientiously opposed to both types (combatant and non-combatant) of
military training and service - fulfills his service obligation as a civilian alternative service worker.
1-A-O Conscientious Objector - conscientiously opposed to training and military service requiring the use
of arms - fulfills his service obligation in a noncombatant position within the military.
2-D Ministerial Students - deferred from military service.
3-A Hardship Deferment - deferred from military service because service would cause hardship upon his
family.
4-C Alien or Dual National - sometimes exempt from military service.
4-D Ministers of Religion - exempted from military service.
Student Postponements - a college student may have his induction postponed until he finishes the current
semester or, if a senior, the end of the academic year. A high school student may have his induction
postponed until he graduates or until he reaches age 20. Appealing a Classification - A man may appeal his
classification to a Selective Service Appeal Board.

disobedience.

    Discipline is the suppression of base desires, and is usually understood to be synonymous with self-
    control restraint and control.
    •        Discipline of the mind is a basic ingredient of genuine morality and therefore spiritual strength.

Economics
The social science that deals with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services...

  • Production:  The act or process of producing.
  • Distribution:  The process of distributing.
  • Consumption:  The act or process of consuming.
Education develops the intellect; and the intellect distinguishes man from other creatures.  Education
which ignores man's intrinsic nature, and neglects his intellect and reasoning power can not be considered
true
Education.
Education and the quest for knowledge stop only at the grave...
