    This is an HBO special movie about a true story of a fallen Marine being escorted home. It stars Kevin Bacon. You can watch a trailer on the following site:

    HBO Films: Taking Chance

    No matter you view on the ongoing military engagements around the world, you might consider this movie. It's based on a true story, it's not political, and it's not about war... It's about the sacrifice that one Marine paid and his journey back home.

    Michael Medved reviewed it on the radio yesterday, and gave it a rare (for him) 4-star rating. He points out that although it is about a Marine, it is representative of the great respect that all branches show to their fallen comrades.

    There are few honors greater than escorting and remembering fallen comrades.

    As I have a strong speaking voice, I was often asked to conduct memorial announcements and services while I was in the military. It is very difficult, because you are honoring men or woman that are your relatives, as we were all brothers and sisters.

    Not allowing grief to overcome you is the hardest part, especially if any media is present.

    God bless our fallen and those who stand the watch.
