2017 HONORARY VETTY
Hacksaw Ridge not only vividly captured the tragedy of war and a soldier’s determination to serve for his country, but it expressed the humanity, love and forgiveness of Veterans as well. The portrayal of Pfc. Edmond T. Doss, who chose to fight for our freedom and care for his brothers is a feeling all too familiar that every Veteran in our community is able to resonate with. The number of Veterans that have forever been positively touched through Hacksaw Ridge, is immeasurable. Hacksaw Ridge depicted every emotion, thought and concern a soldier undergoes, in the most exceptional manner, and for that, the project's excellence was acclaimed with the Honorary VETTY Award.
