Description

Though he hated the term "conscientious objector", Corporal Desmond Doss was the first in history to receive the Medal of Honor. He refused to shoot or even to carry a weapon, but served as a medic and saved dozens of lives in the Pacific Theatre of World War II.

His story was told in the 2017 Oscar-winning film "Hacksaw Ridge", played by actor Andrew Garfield.
