I am a paid firefighter and also a licensed funeral director in NY. I attended a funeral directors convention this past week. During these conventions, we can sit in on lectures to give us education credits. After reading the days events, I had one more class I could take out of 3 left. I chose to sit in on one called Taking Chance. I was not really sure what it was going to be about. I found out that the speaker is the Chief of Mortuary Operations on Dover Air Force Base. He was also the Technical adviser for the movie Takin Chance ( and also the person using the vacuum to remove the water from the ice inside the shipping container). He said on a couple of occasions he stopped the filming to correct the way things were being done. ie: Gently placing the ice with the remains not just tossing it in. He wanted the story of how our men and woman are cared for to be shown in the correct manor. I was very impressed with the way things are done. During the 2 hr lecture, we watched this 1.5 hr movie.
This movie, I think was done with that I call detailed.
I think that more movies like this should be made. The Fallen Men and Women of our Military. need to have more said about them
As I'm one of the Many PEASE GREETERS. that meet each and every flight either going overseas or coming home. I know that
the Fallen Heroes need more said about them. For you that so not know what Pease Greeters are... go to www.peasegreeters.org.
Pease was a SAC AIR FORCE BASE up until a few years ago. Now it is Pease International Trade Port, Portsmouth, NH.
I have already lent this movie out to my friends.

To anyone who is looking at this DVD and wondering whether or not you should buy it, let me save you some time - PLEASE buy this movie! My friends, both male and female, who have seen "Taking Chance" have been deeply moved by it and thank me for recommending it. I watched it twice on HBO, but it's one for my movie collection so I bought it, and it will be watched again and again.
God bless our troops!
I loved this movie..My brother was a marine and was killed in a traning mission in CA and as I watched this movie I saw what my family went threw lokkin from the otside in. It fits almost perfect to my family situation. The young man in the movie was killed when he was 20 and on his day off his family was notified on sat. And for my family my brother was 19 when he was killed and on the day he was supposed to be off and they informed us on sat night. We went to the air port to pick his body up and threre were people suluting him. they are very respectfuff and as we drove through our home town the streets we lined with friends and family members holding candels and AMERICAN and TEXAS flags. It was amazing to see the respect and honor, my brother would have been so proud!!!!!!!
