Taking Chance

Looking for a good movie to rent? (It seems like there are very few out there right now!) I highly recommend "Taking Chance". Put out by HBO last year, it's based on the true story of a marine Lt. Colonel who chooses to escort the body of a fallen soldier home from Iraq. It's very powerful and emotional to see the care and honor that is given to these brave men and women who give their lives so selflessly. Warning: have your kleenex handy. I don't know if it was since Mark was in the Air Force for 14 years or if I'm just a crybaby, but I found myself crying through the whole thing. Whether you have family ties to the military or not, I think all Americans will be touched this movie.
