I watched this on the couch with the Pink 6. I've never seen a movie that made me cry yet be proud to an American. I don't think most Americans understand what happens to fallen servicemembers when they come home. This should be required viewing for every person that claims to be a patriot.
If you're not busy tonight, or even if you are, HBO has a movie you shouldn't miss. Taking Chance, the true story of Chance Phelps, killed in Iraq on Good Friday, 2004.

I've watched this a couple of times, and I can almost keep my eyes dry. Almost. I figure I'll have a box of kleenex handy when I watch the movie tonight.
Taking Chance, tonight on HBO at 7pm central.
