Taking Chance

Taking Chance is a wonderful movie we watched last Saturday evening. Auntie K, Hubbie and myself all had our moments of blubbering and sniffing, and through the entire film felt pride and honor. This movie is a must see!


It has Kevin Bacon in it, and along with the cast, it is one of the best acted movies I have seen in a long time. You feel you are outside looking in, and it makes one feel very good at the actions of many wonderful Americans with heart. As a veteran, I give my complete approval!

Again, this is a must see....

In April, 2004, casualties mount in Iraq. At Quantico, choices focus on increasing troop strength or only replacing casualties. Lt. Col. Mike Strobl crunches numbers. Stung by his superior's rejection of his recommendation because he lacks recent combat experience, Strobl volunteers for escort duty, accompanying the remains Pfc. Chance Phelps, killed at 19. From Dover to Philadelphia by hearse, from there to Minneapolis and on to Billings by plane, and then by car to Phelps' Wyoming home - person after person pays respects. Kind words, small gifts, and gratitude are given Strobl to deliver to the family on this soul-searching journey.
