Pfc. Desmond Doss was not wounded and evacuated in a daylight assault at Hacksaw Ridge. He was wounded a couple of weeks later in the Okinawan Campaign during a night attack near Shuri. As per his Medal of Honor citation, he was wounded in the legs by a grenade but had to wait 5 hours before stretcher bearers could reach him, during which time he dressed his own wounds. While being carried back to safety by three stretcher bearers, they were attacked by a Japanese tank. At which time Doss crawled off the stretcher to a more seriously wounded man and insisted the others evacuate that soldier and then return for himself. While waiting for the stretcher to return, he was shot by a sniper as he was being carried by another soldier. Thus causing a compound fracture on his arm, for which he improvised a splint using a rifle stock. He then crawled 300 yards to an Aid Station for treatment.
