On today’s program, we cover the story of an unusual young man who served as a United States soldier in World War II. He read the Bible, and he believed the Sixth Commandment, Thou shalt not kill. He refused to pick up a gun. But he managed to get a job as a medic, and served in multiple actions in the Pacific theater.

This is a story of a man who overcame terrible opposition and persecution, but remained committed to trying to serve his fellow soldiers by tending to their wounds.

It’s a story of remarkable selflessness—and courage, both on the battlefield and off.

It’s the story of the only conscientious objector in America’s history who received the Congressional Medal of Honor.
