True Story

03 Sep

Mel Gibson’s movie–Hacksaw Ridge–is coming out this November.  It’s the story of Desmond Doss–a Conscientious Objector–who served in WWII but refused to carry a rifle and refused to kill others.  He saved 75 lives during one battle in the Battle of Okinawa in the Pacific. The Army postponed a second battle until Desmond could finish praying.  Medal of Honor.  If this guy’s not saved, I don’t know who is.

    I actually had the movie rights to this story for a while. Met Doss. It’s an amazing, true story of true faith.

    As I age it seems more difficult to watch the depiction of suffering in ‘war movies’. So many of these films were so good and so realistic they are still vivid in my memory. Since, however, it is a Mel Gibson film this will probably be enough impetus to watch it despite all. Thank you for the always interesting and valued information~~.

      Apparently this one is even gorier and more graphic than the past Mel movies he directed. But a worthy cause.
