Desmond Doss was a United States Army corporal who served as a combat medic with an infantry company in World War II. He became the first conscientious objector to win the US Congressional Medal of Honor because he refused to bear arms or carry a weapon during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. He saved 75 men in the midst of constant enemy fire and was unwilling to take a life or even so much as touch a weapon. He chose to fight by saving lives. He had the idea that he could serve his country at war and also obey the command: “Thou shalt not kill.” Find out the real story that inspired the movie.
