Taking Chance

H/T to Blackfive on this one.

HBO is going to air a new movie called "Taking Chance" about a Marine officer who escorts the body of a young Marine who died in Iraq to his hometown.

I first read the story several years ago, and it's a tear jerker. It brought back memories of the times I've been on burial detail, and it's an excellent read.

If you have HBO, I'd highly suggest you watch this, even if the acting, etc. is bad. This is a story that needs to be learned by more people.

Thanks for letting me know. Netflix is allowing people to add it to their queues, so I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD. I found it interesting because Chase is apparently from the town where my wife's father lives, Dubois, WY. I'll have to visit him next time we go to see her father
