Movies, movies, movies

Here's the trailer for the movie "Taking Chance" starring the Marine Corps family.
Well, and Kevin Bacon.

I worked with this lieutenant colonel who escorted a Marine who had died in Iraq from the DC area to Hawaii. I asked if he was at all uncomfortable wearing his alphas (jacket, tie, long-sleeved shirt, and trousers) all the way there on that long plane ride, and he answered evoking the sentiment this movie conveys.
"No, it's an honor."
