When he was placed on academic probation after the Fall 1967 semester, he considered his options should he lose his academic deferment. Bennett arrived in South Vietnam on January 1, 1969, and was assigned to Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 14th Infantry in the Central Highlands of Vietnam.Deeply patriotic, but opposed to killing on religious grounds, he opted to enlist as a conscientious objector who was willing to serve. The unit began a series of strenuous patrols in the dense, mountainous terrain.A dormitory tower at West Virginia University's Evansdale Residential Complex is named in his honor.A medical clinic at Fort Hood is named in his honor.
