    Movie: Taking Chance

    I just re-watched a movie from 2009. It was called Taking Chance, staring Kevin Bacon. It is based on a true story, based on the journals kept by Lt. Col. Mike Strobel as he escorted the body of fallen soldier, Chance Phelps back home. It is protocol that each returning KIA is escorted to his or her home town, so they are never alone.



    If you have never seen it, the story is well told and gives a behind the scenes look at how the body is prepped, very carefully for return, and the final journey. Strobel details the people he meets along the way, and the respect he and Chance are given by all they encounter.

    Great movie, and even though I had seen the film before, I still got "something in my eyes" a few times while watching. If you have HBO, you may find the movie there.

    Thank you for the recommendation. I've never seen the movie, but I think I might make the effort to do so. Sometimes we need to see something that is real where we might just want to look away.

    I haven't seen the movie either but will try and get it from my library. I bet Kevin Bacon makes it even more special. He is such a great actor in my book.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
