Remembering and honoring Americans who have protected our country
Today is Memorial Day, the day we have established as a nation to honor our veterans and our armed forces of today and yesterday. There have been hundreds of thousands of 'ordinary' service-people who deserve honor and recognition. But there have also been soldiers that deserve a higher recognition for their bravery and self-sacrifice for the cause of saving others. The excellent WW2 film "Hacksaw Ridge" portrays a superior example of such a soldier, Desmond Doss, who was Christ-like in several ways. The 2016 film, "Hacksaw Ridge" was made to celebrate his example.
