The Medal of Honor: Robert Maxwell’s Story
New Christian Video Released May 1st.
Just released on May 1st. the new Christian video, “The Medal of Honor: Robert Maxwell’s Story” is now available free for your ministry and for congregations to use.
Robert Maxwell is our nation’s oldest living recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor and has a great story to share. He’s also a committed Christian and will tell you that although he wears the Medal of Honor around his neck, the most important thing he ever did was to accept Christ as his Savior and Lord.
As you’ll hear him tell it, Bob was a part of some of the most important campaigns of World War II, but on September 7, 1944, at about 2:00 A. M. when a live German hand grenade landed at his feet, Bob had only about 3 seconds to make a choice that would change his life forever.
In this video you’ll hear him tell that amazing story, but more important, you’ll also hear him share his faith in Christ. You’ll clearly see how the video was specifically designed to be an evangelical tool Christians can use to lovingly challenge their non-Christian friends, family, military vets and others to consider the reality of God and the necessity for a Savior.
In the video, Bob discusses that although he had faith in God, he came to find out that wasn’t enough to get him to Heaven, because he was still missing the connection to Jesus and the salvation found only in Him.
There’s nothing quite like it out there and God can use it to bring many to Him. This is a tool Christians should have in their Christian toolbox.
Here are some ways ministries and congregations are using the video.
- Post an article about it with the link on your Church or ministry website. Encourage people to watch and share it.
- Share it through your Church or ministry’s social media and encourage your folks to do the same on their own social media.
- Make copies of it to give out to veterans during a special event in their honor.
- Design a business sized witness card with the URL on it and hand those cards out to various people like a bank teller, the person next to you on a plane, the plumber who comes to your house or the people in line with you at the grocery store. If you just put a card in someone’s hands, The Lord can use it.

You’re invited to be a part of a growing number of people seeing it and sharing it with others.
Some comments from pastors about the video.
“In a time when the word “hero” suffers from over-usage and inflated application, meet a real American hero in every sense of the word, Bob Maxwell, World War II Medal of Honor recipient. Yet, he is quick to point out that the true hero in his life is the risen Lord Jesus, who died to grant eternal life. This is a poignant and powerful message for all to hear!”
Dr. Bob Jack, Pastor Charlotte, N. C.
“Bob Maxwell’s story is inspiring and amazing. His courage in serving his country as a young man defies description. And his personal faith and character shine like a bright beacon. How desperately our society needs to be reminded of the values of this man and his ‘Greatest Generation’!”
Dr. Doug Pratt, Pastor, Bonita Springs, Florida.
