    Movie "Taking Chance"
    Just watched this movie about a Marine (Kevin Bacon) who escorts another Marine's body that was killed in combat back to his family. The honor shown to Chance (the dead Marine)is almost overwhelming. I recommend the movie and recommend you have Kleenex.

    Netflix; Taking Chance

    Based on an article by Marine Lt. Col. Michael Strobl, this HBO original film tells the story of Strobl's emotional experience traveling across America as a volunteer escort officer for the body of fallen 19-year-old marine Chance Phelps. Along the 2004 journey to Phelps' hometown in Wyoming, Strobl (portrayed by Golden Globe winner Kevin Bacon) witnesses -- and is moved by -- acts of respect by everyday Americans.
