Taking Chance

By lex, on February 14, 2009

Most of you have probably read Lt. Col. Michael Strobl’s story of bringing Marine Private First Class Chance Phelps home to Dubois, Montana from Dover, Delaware. If you haven’t please set a side a moment to read it here. We learn a little bit about PFC Phelps, how he died returning fire to protect his convoy. But we learn a great deal more about ourselves, who we are, what we honor. How much we all share.

HBO has made a television movie of the story, the trailer is here.

And if you’ve got  a moment on the evening of 21 February 2009, join me wherever you are, and watch Taking Chance.
