The Passing of a Hero

Just a bit of fluff, but it would seem the world lost a true hero. Desmond T. Doss Sr. was a conscientious objector during WWII. Refusing to carry a gun he served as a medic in the pacific where he was the only conscientious objector to win The Congressional Medal of Honor in Okinawa for carrying 75 wounded soldiers to safety. Doss died March 23rd.
