If you have not seen this movie by HBO, it is playing again over this Memorial Day weekend in tribute to our fallen heroes - Taking Chance

Taking Chance

In April 2004, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl, USMC, came across the name of 19-year-old Lance Corporal Chance Phelps, a young Marine who had been killed by hostile fire in Al Anbar Province, Iraq. Strobl, a Desert Storm veteran with 17 years of military service, requested that he be assigned for military escort duty to accompany Chance's remains to his family in Dubois, Wyo. 

Witnessing the spontaneous outpouring of support and respect for the fallen Marine - from the groundskeepers he passed along the road to the cargo handlers at the airport - Strobl was moved to capture the experience in his personal journal, writing Taking Chance. 



To all of the brave men and women who have served, are currently serving and who will serve in the future - you have the thanks of a grateful nation.  Your dedication and sacrifice for the freedoms we have are never forgotten and never taken for granted.  God Bless You All.
