Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge, a film that will debut November 4, 2016, will spark discussion about war, PTSD, faith and combat.

One of our certified members, Chaplain Ronald J. Ringo Jr. who has served with the Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, and who designed the original Marine Corps “Warrior Transition Program”, provided technical assistance to the director, Mel Gibson, and the producers of this film.

The film is based on the true story about US Army medic Desmond T. Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist conscientious objector who refused to bear arms, yet was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Harry S. Truman for single-handedly saving the lives of over 75 of his comrades while under constant enemy fire during the Battle of Okinawa in World War II.
