What a PUNK! 10th.Mountaineers are one of the most prestigious Army units in the world. Why would this punk go through all that training, get deployed, and now he's a conscientious objector? Seen these guys in Viet Nam. Send him to the nastiest place in Iraq possible while you mull it over! Then let him join his PUNK brothers out there in Leavenworth.

How convenient for "Captain" Brown. After receiving his free college education courtesy of the American taxpayer he, like Paul enroute to Damascus, suddenly has an epiphany.

Simple solution:
Since Capt. Brown is no longer willing to fulfill his duties, give him an immediate General Discharge. Then bill him for the cost of his West Point education, to include tuition, room, board, uniforms, etc., and make damn sure he pays every nickel.

Hell no. The military paid for his college education. He can stick it out.

"ALL" academies are training future fighting men and women. What was this "knuckle-head" expecting? Could have left West Point within 2 years with no strings attached...
