CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) Dosmond Doss Jr., 19, a Seventh-day Seventh-day Seventh-day Seventh-day Adventist, is entering the army as a conscientious objector objector following the example of his father who was credited with helping save the lives of 75 men on Okinawa in World War II. Doss Sr. won the Medal of Honor for crawling among the wounded on Okinawa to give them aid and then, although wounded himself, helping bring them back from behind enemy lines. The younger Doss lives in Chattanooga, Tenn., and works as a hospital attendant. He said he plans to ask for hospital duty in the Army.
