“Taking Chance” is on HBO starting this weekend. It is the portrayal of LtCol Strobel’s story of bringing PFC Chance Phelps home from the war.
It reminds me of an earlier post I did last year regarding the Pulitzer Prize winning coverage of a Marine Corps Casualty Assistance Calls Officer in Colorado. You can read the entire article here and I encourage you to. It contains some of the most powerful images of this solemn tradition that you will ever see.
So, take some time out of your day.
Watch the show on HBO, and read the story from the Rocky Mountain News.
And remember those who have fallen, for in our memories they will live forever.
