SIR! NO SIR! -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
I was brought into the Company office and I was told by a major that I would be brought up on charges of leading and conspiring to mutiny against the United States government, because there were three of us who were refusing to go on combat operations.
And that I would be facing a 20-to-life sentence. And so I walked out of there in shock thinking, well, I'm going to jail for a long time. I didn't know there was a GI Movement. I just had this strong moral sense of something not being right.
Then they sent me to see the quote, "Company Shrink." He said, "Well, what are you really concerned about?" And I said, "I don't care about prison time, I just want to have some connection with my home." I didn't want to be ostracized from American culture and society. And he said, "Well, let me show you something." And he reached into some drawer that he had, and he pulled out this New York Times newspaper. And there was a full page ad that had all these signatures of all these people who were opposed to the war.
