a small request for my blobbies....

Lovee and I watched a movie last night on HBO. I have no words to describe my feelings through it all. To say I had the dreaded 'throat lump' all the way through it comes close though.

It's called "Taking Chance".

It's a must see even if you do cry and feel horrible....because afterwards you'll feel humble and in awe and you will never be the same. Seriously.

It's a story about a Marine Colonel who volunteers to escort a fallen Marine home and his journey getting there.

I'm a Marine wife. I had one son in the Army and another in the Marines. My brother was killed in 67 in Viet Nam.
I had no clue that there was such a process.
Not a clue.

Please watch it. In my humble opinion it's a must see for the entire country.

Semper Fi

Yea TT I am so going to see that one.. but alone.. because no one ever gets to see me cry...well, once in a while.. but not over movies..

I cry when Princess and baby leave to go home after a too short visit..

but other than that.. no crying allowed unless I'm really pissed.

If you see me crying.. run... I'm about to blow!!!

I saw this movie advertised when it first came out.. I'll watch for it on HBO

OH TT, I didn't know about your brother! I have read about this movie and it sounds good.

Okay, I'll have to find it. Those soul tugging tear jerkers are so hard on me.

I heart the military. And, the Marines are super awesome!

I have respect for everyone who enlists and serves their duty so that I can live in my castle and raise my angel children.

I saw the listing for that show and made a mental note to watch then missed - I'll keep my eyes peeled - I do want to see it - even more so now!

I don't get HBO, but if it ever comes on reg'lar tv, I'll be sure to watch.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My uncle died in WWII and it's still raw for my aunts and mother.
