Oh man, it took me three tries to get through reading LtCol Strobl's article.
Thank you. Respect. Always.

Very well done movie...simple, straightforward, with a lot to say that went unsaid...Chance Phelps touched many lives in his journey as a kid, in the Corps, and as the film shows, in his journey home...he will continue to touch many more lives with this film, and the Foundation that serves as his legacy...a rare film, indeed...

For a detailed account of returning the first casualty, some of you may find of interest "Shane Comes Home" by Rinker Buck which can be had on Amazon or perhaps your local library. The author was a year behind me in high school and left-leaning at the time so to see how this story changed his view of the military was very gratifying.
I just wanted to say I just got to see this movie. It made it to AFN(Armed Forces Network) in only one month. As a Marine a few tears came to my eyes. I wish that all Americans would watch this movie and see the way you should act to a man or woman that dies for the defense of our country.

Thanks for this post. I don't have HBO, but I added this movie to my Netflix queue. Can't wait to watch it.
Heartfelt thanks for all those that have served, and all those that are currently serving. May God bless you and your families.
