Taking Chance 2009


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 soldier Chance Phelps. The 2004 journey was made especially significant by the fact that both Strobl and Phelps share the same hometown of Dubois, Wyo., with a population of less than 1,000.

Taking Chance Movie Review by Chris (8/1/2010)

Taking Chance Movie Review by Movie Addict (2/28/2009)

I never had the honor to do escort duty. I was in the Honor Guard at several funerals during Vietnam. This film shows people at their very best honoring those who have fallen. It does not take a position on the war, and it doesn't matter whether you are pro-war or anti-war, it is the soldiers, sailors, and marines that...
