Taking Chance

Our fallen heroes and their families have been political pawns in Washington’s latest power plays. While the political class cares little for the military and their families, this HBO documentary shows that the American people do. Taking Chance was released in 2009. It is a powerful story describing how our military – and the American people – honor those who die in combat while protecting our country. The movie is available on DVD and some of the streaming services. You can also read Lt. Col. Strobl’s story at the Chicago Tribune.
