Mel Gibson promotes his World War II film 'Hacksaw Ridge' in Times Square
Mel Gibson was in Times Square Tuesday morning to talk about his new movie Hacksaw Ridge.
Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Hacksaw Ridge opens in theaters November 3rd.
