I agree. Another option for Quakers who felt that they could not directly serve in the military was to supply the armies with various things that they might need like food, etc. This sometimes can be found in order books from various localities such as counties during the revolution or shortly afterwards. The DAR (an example) does grant membership for those who provided such things as well as for those who actually served. I have a great great something who did that.
