Hacksaw Ridge

I love movies like this. Where a kid takes a lot of shit before his true value is shown to all who thought he couldn't do it.

Why would a conscientious objector be in a regular infantry unit and not in the medical corps or some administrative job? Doesn't make sense to me.

Okay, now you just ruined it for me. He SHOULD be pushing papers, the big baby.

I had a professor in university who was in the Canadian army in WW2. He was fine with the idea of shooting people but absolutely could NOT bring himself to bayonet anyone. Couldn't even do it on the practice field with straw dummies. So they put him in the medical corps as a stretcher bearer and orderly instead.
