Taking Chance, pt. 2

The original memo that is the basis of the HBO movie "Taking Chance" is posted here. It's long but worth the effort.

I've been sitting here for five minutes trying to put my thoughts about that article into words.
I can't.
It would do well for anyone who has no idea of what the honor of serving in the military is all about to read
Thank you for posting it.
I hope the movie is on DVD.

Oh no. Sorry, heard about it and am not subjecting myself to that. The only way I am watching something like that is if I am ALONE and nobody is going to know. Like Dirty Harry says, "a man's got to know his limitations" I know mine.

I'll watch it when I am ALONE and nobody knows...which means sometime tomorrow home...with a full box of Kleenex.

The movie will be on DVD in May. I thought the Col.'s account was riveting. I understand the movie is virtually the same with a few minor exceptions.

I guess it was riveting. Like a good book, I didn't want it to be over.
