Please read this excerpt from Josephine Arrowood’s story, “Keeping the peace: A conscientious objector reflects,” which appeared in the Glen Arbor Sun in May 2009:

Pottery artist John Huston of Interlochen (and manager of the Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor) confronted the choices of going to war as a youngster during the Vietnam War. As the son of a career Navy officer, his family was firmly rooted in the armed forces tradition. John grew up all around the country, living on or near bases and attending school with kids in the close-knit military community.

“My older brother and I just assumed that we would go into the military. It was kind of glamorous and exciting, and of course, we lived that life; it was really a part of the culture,” he recalls. His brother did join the Navy as a bomber pilot, and served three tours of duty in Vietnam.
