If you’ve not seen ‘Taking Chance’, I highly recommend it. Very powerful movie.
I’ll have to see that Todd.
A picture that stayed with me – actually a series – was of Lt Jim Cathey – the picture of his wife sleeping by his casket with the Marine Guard – the passengers looking out the plane windows as they are unloading his casket – as powerful a picture – series – as Rosenthal’s Iwo Jima picture (and there is quite a story behind that)
Ditto on the movie. Kevin Bacon is not a favorite actor of mine, but this movie does justice to the story and to the event and to the sacrifice made by our fighting men and women and their families. I tear up just reading the title, because it immediately brings back the emotions I felt on reading and watching the story of taking Chance home. The respect with which our honored dead are treated, by military and civilians alike, is extraordinarily touching.
