There was an actual ridge with netting on the side to where the U.S. soldiers could climb into or out of combat and on top was treacherous, rocky terrain. Desmond Doss legitimately saved 75 soldiers at Hacksaw Ridge without using a single weapon. Desmond kept praying to himself, “Lord, please help me get one more.” (Blair).

This program put a larger number of Soldiers in close contact with local recruiters due to the amount of participation the program received. Participation in the program was high because this was the first time Soldiers had the opportunity to earn money for bringing leads to a recruiter.
