A film that keeps Memorial Day real is Taking Chance. A 2009 docudrama starring Kevin Bacon, and directed by Ross Katz (available on Netflix, and can be streamed on Amazon Prime), tells the story of Lt. Col. Michael Strobl, a volunteer military escort who accompanies the body of Lance Cpl. Chance Phelps to his hometown in Wyoming.
Also to note, is that this film won the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, and just broke our hearts. Watching this gave us a perspective on Memorial Day that we never had before.
A profound thank-you to all who serve.
