Cargo nets at Hacksaw Ridge

The Cargo Nets That Scale 'Hacksaw Ridge.'

400 ft. of rope cargo beauty! Would you climb?

Here is an excellent article about World War II Army Pfc. Desmond Doss. I thought I would share this article because it does talk about one of the last campaigns in the Pacific and how using cargo nets, Doss’ battalion climbed a treacherous, 400-foot-high jagged cliff, nicknamed Hacksaw Ridge, to get to a plateau. Climbing a net of that caliber is an incredible feat in itself.

A whole new world of danger sat atop that ridge. Read more about it here: MoH Monday: The Unlikely Hero Behind 'Hacksaw Ridge.'
