Taking Chance was just released on dvd this past week. It originally aired as an original film on HBO on 2-21-09.

It is the chronicle of Chance Phelps, a Marine who died in Iraq on 4-9-04, and his military escort, Lieutenant Colonel Strobl, who escorted his remains back to Dubois, WY. It vividly portrays the respect, honor and dignity the Marines and all military give one another in life and in this case, in death. It is touching, sad and will make you proud to be an American. The movie is based on the after action report Strobl wrote after doing his volunteer escort duty for Chance.

I recommend this movie and story to everyone.
