"this just in" piece featuring an interview in question-and-answer format with Peaks Island native Perry O'Brien, who last year was granted an honorable discharge as a conscientious objector (CO) to war. O'Brien served three years in the army, including a tour of duty in Afghanistan where the sight of wounded children forced him to question the effectiveness of war. He spent five months lobbying for CO status, and is now active with the national group Veterans for Peace. In January, he and other conscientious objectors from around the country launched www.peace-out.com. This fall, O'Brien will attend Cornell University to study philosophy and political science.
