My kid's dad was in the military and as a military family, we lived among the military community for many years. But long before my realtionship with their dad, I was always very patriotic, wanting to make the military a career myself. That was not to be. In April 2004, my nephew was killed in Iraq. He was also very patriotic and had wanted to serve in all 5 branches of the military. He had already served in the Navy, he was killed active duty Army. When I watched this movie, I cried - silently, then loudly, long and hard. With each step of Chance's journey home, I became more and more proud to be an American. I am honored not only by Chance's service but by the service of the many men and women who have served or are currently serving. Thank you for the blanket of freedom your service has provided. To the families that have lost their sons and daughters while they served our country, my sincere condolences and my deep felt appreciation. I have 2 children now, 1 of which's desire is join the Marines. I am so blessed to be a woman, to have felt life and to have given birth to life. As any mom would tell you, my kids are extraordinary. While watching the special features - the photo clips of the real Chance - it was as if I was looking back at the growing up years of my own son. My son is also a history buff and he too desires to become one of America's finest - an American soldier.
