OCC creates special fund to assist Travis Bishop’s appellate defense

OCC has set up a fund for the appellate defense costs of Travis Bishop, a conscientious objector who received a 12 month prison sentence (later reduced to 9 months) for refusing to deploy to Afghanistan. Travis hopes on appeal to have his conviction overturned, as well as to see the courts recognize that all soldiers have the right to be informed that they can apply for C.O. status.
