This letter from Richard Booth to Local Board #1 of Olathe, Kansas, is similar to many other letters from conscientious objectors during World War II. In the letter, Booth argues that being drafted into the armed forces against one's beliefs, is in "direct violation" of the Constitution, as well as his beliefs as a Jehovah's Witness.
