   StephaniePlum posted on Main Page The Lobby  In the wake of Gen. Kelly’s remarks yesterday regarding the sacred nature of honoring the military’s fallen heroes, I want to strongly recommend the movie that he made passing reference to: Taking Chance starring Kevin Bacon. It’s the true story of a U.S. Marine who volunteers to escort the body of a Marine home to his family for burial. I wasn’t aware at the time I watched it, but Gen. Kelly served as technical advisor to HBO in producing the film. It presents in precise detail the care and respect shown to every KIA military member and their families. Knowing now that Gen. Kelly was a part of its production makes it even more meaningful to me. Wonderful, wonderful depiction of a very personal and painful part of our military establishment.

   StephaniePlum  This was meant to show up on the Movies and Reviews page !! Oops. I’ll try to repost it there. Then again, maybe this recommendation will reach a wider audience of Connection folks by being here. I strongly encourage you and family members to watch it.

   Escaped commieny  thanks for the heads up, I just watched it, very touching. It is available to stream for free if you have Amazon Prime, more than worth the time.
