    On Veterans day I took the family to see Mel Gibson's "Hacksaw Ridge" about the 96th and the 77th fight on Kakazu ridge Okinawa. The boys in the 77th are marching to the battle front. trucks stacked with the body of the boys from the 96th drive past, my heart sank. I was born in the 96th, the boys held and kissed me, many would never have a son. Doss saved a lot more than 75, he blessed his company many times and they didn't loose a boy. they delayed attacks to be blessed. read the true story. . Mel didn't have time to tell the whole story. a month of battle. 3 mortar burst a second. 70 machine gun cross fire. crawling in a mire of blood, shit and guts. about 25 medal of honor on Okinawa and many hundred more deserved. My father came home wounded. Grandmothers lover Erne Pyle was killed. I joined UDT (SEALS) at 17 how stupid. I have stopped so many boys from going. My own grandson wouldn't listen and lost a leg. it's in a mans dna to fight, how will we ever be able to stop war?
