One of the most powerful scenes of Hacksaw Ridge is when Desmond Doss prays, “Help me get just one more, Lord.”
Desmond Doss tackled unconquerable battles with an unwavering faith.
From a family perspective how does one raise a child with the faith, character and values of Doss?
You can’t help but be inspired, moved and challenged as you read Hero of Hacksaw Ridge.
You may be wondering exactly what Desmond Doss did to deserve the Medal of Honour.
Desmond Doss’ actions at Okinawa and beyond earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor – but what exactly does that mean?
The unwavering faith and conviction Desmond demonstrated on the battlefield was not new – he showed those traits his whole life, even in his earliest years.
For two years, the Army labeled him a worthless liability – but Doss knew otherwise.
The men were ordered to withdraw but Doss refused – instead, he single-handedly dragged 75 wounded and dying soldiers to the ledge before lowering them to safety.
For his heroic actions on the battlefield, this conscientious objector received the US Army’s highest honour.
