A Moving Film

Gentle Friends another cold day here by the Bay - and the weekend is to be a two day bone chiller.  The only thing on the agenda is to get the Christmas Tree packed up and put away.  Just about every other Christmas thing has come down and is stored away, now the tree is the last to go.

Last night I had a Netflix Disc - a documentary called "The Conscientious Objector" - 2004 - 

The film is the true story of WWII Infantryman Desmond Doss the only Conscientious Objector to win the Medal of Honor.  I had never heard of Desmond Doss or of his being awarded the MoH.  I had heard of the the 77th Infantry Battalion and the Battle of Okinawa, Codenamed "Iceberg" - it was during the assault of the jagged escarpment that he as a medic continued to help and render aid to his fallen comrades.

The film is told in the form of interviews with first person recollections - I would highly recommend the film.

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again...... have a super weekend!!

Take care,
