Overview and metadata sections

The Pacific Counseling Service, founded in Monterey, California in 1969, assisted military service personnel in trying to make the United States Armed Forces adhere to regulations concerning G.I. rights and conscientious objector discharges. Eventually there were five Califoria locations, one in Washington State, and others in the Philippines, Japan and Okinawa. Staff consisted of clergymen, ex-servicemen, Vietnam veterans, and civilian conscientious objectors. The legal staff was provided by the National Lawyers Guild.

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is not the official repository for the records of this organization.
