In 1917, the pacifist and socialist Norman Thomas described conscientious objectors in this way:
"He may believe in dying for one's country, or for ideals; but not in killing for them."

How does this quotation help explain the role that many conscientious objectors played overseas during the war?
They supported their country and wanted to help in a non-combat role.
They were dissenters and worked behind the scenes to secretly help the enemy.
They were dissenters and worked to convince American soldiers to leave the army.
They were supporters but wanted to convert American soldiers to their religion.
