The Conscientious Objector

A documentary that tells the remarkable true story of Desmond T. Doss, the only American soldier ever to be awarded the Medal of Honor despite refusing to carry a weapon. Doss, a devout Seventh Day Adventist, did not consider himself a conscientious objector but rather "a conscientious cooperator." As the film relates, Doss's entire life was shaped by an illustration of the Ten Commandments that hung on the wall of his childhood home. As a boy, he walked six miles to donate blood to an accident victim when he heard a call for donors announced on the radio. He held life to be a precious gift from God, and took very seriously the admonition "Thou shall not kill." (On the illustration that hung on the wall, that commandment was represented by an image of Cain standing over the body of his slain brother Abel. In the film, Doss speaks of being horrified by the idea that anyone would kill his own brother.) When President Roosevelt declared war on Japan, Doss, who was offered a deferment, signed up for duty. He expected he would be allowed to serve as an Army medic--his goal was to save life rather than take it--but, as Doss says in the film, he quickly learned that the Army was rather uninterested in what he wanted to do. Desmond T. Doss may be the most amazing American hero of World War II you've never heard of.
