    If anyone has HBO and hasn't seen it, I highly recommend you do watch it. It's one of the most touching movies i've ever seen. It follows a Marine Escort, Lt. Col Strobl as he escorts PFC Chance Phelps home after he is killed in action. It really brings everything home about the War in Iraq and its one of the most emotional movies i've seen.

    If you want to know the back story, here it is

    Now then, I do not want to be a critic here, as this is a very good Movie.

    IMO…………..

    If you are going to go to great length’s to portray this as a Military Tradition from start to finish, there is one important piece of the puzzle that is missing.

    Did anyone else pick up on it?
