Desmond Doss, what a guy! What a legacy! ... y-43214893

If you want to be inspired, if you mightily need inspiration this is probably it. The story is about a hero who went in as an unarmed and very geeky rescuer.

Lowering wounded men (75) down a forty foot cliff may seem at first, a little bit overblown and perhaps disingenuous for Hollywood but try not to let this unfolding drama become obscured by plenty of realistic war graphics and loud noise. Doss's dad plays the most critical role in excellent acting by portraying a grieving man who always felt he might have left friends and loved ones behind. Feeling he was maybe caught-up during the heat of battle but wanted to do more.

His father's lifetime of genuine grieving and despair displayed itself perfectly with a constructive imprinting onto his one son who chooses to save. Doss is bullied and belittled until his shining winning moment.
