    In the military the CO is the commanding officer.

    Doesn't fit the context here though.

    I know. I racked my brain trying to think of something that CO stands for, but ...

    What happened to the picture of the girl? Who was she?

    Isn't there a CO box on the form or something?

    no its a long process and i only know a handful things you have to do to become one. i come from a family of ministers and a strong moral background. my uncle helped his sons become a CO but he passed this year at 52 😞. he helped his sons through the steps but they don't remember how to become one.

    This site gives what seems to be some reasonable advice.

    It sounds like you have to bend over backwards to qualify.

    "Technically, you can't register as a CO unless you receive an induction notice. If you do receive an induction notice, you would have to appear before a local board to explain your beliefs. You would be asked to provide a written statement and/or personal references that help explain how you arrived at your beliefs and how they affect your life. The local board would make a decision based upon the evidence you present."

    i'm learning of all of that. it is very strict. they have gone from accepting 75% of people who apply for it and now the ratio is about 25%.
