The year is 1967. The British Invasion of the Beatles is going strong, Hippies and Flower children are marching and protesting the War in Vietnam and I, a 20 year old conscientious objector am facing the F.B.I., my Draft Board, a District Judge and up to Six Years in Federal prison! It all began with me as a non-religious teenager with a best friend who was one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Little by little I attended their Kingdom Hall and watched and listened. The next thing you know I'm in the county jail on my way to prison. How it happened and why it happened is the first half of my book. The second half explores the history of conscientious objectors from ancient Rome to the end of the Vietnam war. Not for the squeamish or the faint of heart, this is how it was in vivid detail. There are moments of humor and sadness as well as violence along the way.
After you read my book you'll know the answer to the question: WHY did this happen?
