Goofs

Tom Doss never asked his former commander to write a letter that stopped Desmond T. Doss from being court-martialed. He did, though, contact the chairman of the church's War Service Commission in Washington, Carlyle B. Haynes, who in turn contacted the regimental commander, Colonel Stephen S. Hamilton, who straightened the things out and gave Desmond a three-day pass to go home and see his brother Harold before Harold returned to the Navy to go overseas.
