A movie that I recommend is "Taking Chance."

Is is based on the true story, staring Kevin Bacon, of escorting fallen Marine PFC Chance Phelps on his last journey home to his birthplace in Wyoming.

Very dignified movie and as a Marine, even tougher to watch.

Thanks for the suggestion. It was quite touching indeed, I'm also an ex Marine (Vietnam, approx 1966). I came very close to being a casualty. Many whom I knew never made it out alive. I returned home without a scratch. It still amazes me how that even happened.

One movie that I think is very much worth getting on DVD is called 'Danny Deck Chair' It's romantic, fun and will boost your immune system after so much enjoyment.

Truly have enjoyed reading this thread of MOVIE favorites. I have seen about all but two. I did not see anything about Christine Bale -Actor in the western "Hostiles" made in 2017. I still do not know why I kept returning to watch it over and over some 6-times or more. Came across it on Netflix, no longer showing. About a small group of Military 1866-union Soldiers-Calvery escorting an Indian Chief and his family to the Decota hills to die. For myself, a very moving movie well done, acting as they fight off PTSD for prior conflicts, and save a woman who lost her family.


2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van, showing six tires down, 3400XD, V6, 7-Speed Automatic 24FL, 170-WB, 24'-3", Coachmen Galleria w/Li3, "Next ROAD TRIP" to where?

Memorial Day with James Cromwell.

A story about a boy and his grandfather.
Two generations of soldiers, two generations of war.

I remember when I was about 13, I asked my father about the rifle and the sword with the funny character inscriptions(Japanese lettering)on them that he stored in our basement back home. It was the only time I saw him well up about the war.

If you watch the movie you'll know what I mean.
