This movie could be about one of the WW2 Vets, that I interviewed, PFC Finney who was a medic in Okinawa. Finney did not want to "kill" at basic training, so they made a medic out of him. A difference was that Finney carried a gun, and said he would use it to protect his Brothers in Arms, if he had to. It turned out he was too busy saving soldiers life to use his gun. He does not understand how a medic could get through the battles without getting wounded "climbing from foxhole to foxhole" stopping the bleeding of his comrades. PFC Finney was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze star for his heroics.
