Honoring Our Fallen Heroes

Just finished watching ‘Taking Chance‘, an HBO film based on the experiences of Lt. Col. Michael Strobl escorting the body of LCpl Chance Phelps back to his hometown from the Iraq War. The film chronicles one of the silent, virtually unseen journeys that takes place every day across America, bearing witness to the fallen and all those who, literally and figuratively, carry them home. A uniquely non-political film about the war in Iraq, the film pays tribute to the men and women who gave their lives in military service.

Here’s the trailer for the film:

This would be
as good a
time as any
to honor
fallen
heroes.
An uncle,
a stranger,
a friend.
