D.T. Doss and the True Miracles of Faith at Hacksaw Ridge and throughout his WWII years–Our Kind of National and Global Hero!!!


By Kevin Stoda
Wow!  I am amazed that this new movie about the real life war experiences of conscientious objector Desmond T. Doss has got an 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  The movie is entitled HACKSAW RIDGE. It is directed by Mel Gibson, whose father moved to Australia from the USA in the Vietnam War era rather than serve in a war he did not believe in.
Through Desmond, soldiers on both sides of the war saw Jesus’ view on the world and its wars.  He just wanted to save people.

+HOPELESS ENTERTAINMENT  says, “[T]hey kept what Doss did after the rescue of the 75. When he kicked the grenade, he was wounded and lay there for 5 hours waiting for his own rescue. While he was being carried away on a litter, he say a man get shot in the head. He rolled off the litter, crawled over to the man, bandaged his wound, and insisted that wounded man be borne on the litter, while Doss waited. Mel left that out because he thought no one would believe it, but it is true, and in the documentary Concientious Objector.
