Conscientious Objector

I recently stumbled across the amazing story of a man named Desmond Doss. It told of his service during WW II. It really doesn't seem possible any of it's true. Yet eyewitnesses, newspaper articles, a TV program, and film footage of him receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor from President Harry Truman, says it is. I couldn't help but wonder why I hadn't heard or read anything about this man before. There was a documentary made about him in 2004, but (alas) we all know how popular documentaries are. Thankfully, a movie titled "Hacksaw Ridge" will be released this November. I don't think you need to wait that long to learn of this extraordinary man. Google him.
