FORT RILEY, Kan. -- The 16th Infantry Regiment here boasts a long and distinguished combat record. It fought at Manassas and Gettysburg. It was the first unit to hit Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944. It has earned its motto: "Always Ready."But the 16th's storied history is in the process of adding an embarrassing footnote. For the last week, a small army of FBI agents has swarmed over the tree-lined, campus-like setting of Fort Riley, interviewing soldiers about a former sergeant who is the prime suspect in the worst civilian bombing in American history.

FORT RILEY, Kan. -- For seven years George Morse has been a good soldier. Now he is refusing an order. He says he will not go to the Middle East.The 25-year-old sergeant says he is a conscientious objector to war. He is one of a few active-duty servicemen and a handful of reservists who have publicly claimed a moral unwillingness to serve since the Persian Gulf crisis began. His court-martial is to begin tomorrow.What others see as an act of cowardice, he sees as courage. It is tougher to say no -- to face ridicule, prosecution, and maybe prison -- than to go, he says.
