“LORD, HELP ME GET ONE MORE!” When Mel Gibson Makes a Movie, You KNOW It’ll Be Good

HacksawRidgeTeaserPoster_2016June39“Lord, help me get one more,” he prayed. “One more!” And as bullets flew through the Okinawa air on May 1, 1945, as shells burst around him, Private Desmond T. Doss, a medic in the U.S. Army’s 307th Infantry, 77th Infantry Division, lifted first one, then another of his wounded comrades and carried them to safety.

In case you missed it:  Over at the National Catholic Register, I talked about Pfc. Doss’ heroic service as a medic during World War II. A Seventh Day Adventist, Doss was a conscientious objector who did not himself fire a weapon. However, his brave rescue of his fellow soldiers earned him a Medal of Honor.

And now the action drama is coming to a theater near you. Hacksaw Ridge, directed by Mel Gibson, will be released on November 4, 2016.

If you haven’t read the story, check out my article at the Register. From there, follow the link to the official Medal of Honor citation to see the full account of his acts of courage.
