Notable People From Grand Junction

There are a few notable people from Grand Junction like former Denver Broncos wide receiver Vance Johnson. But, do you know the story of Lt Colonel Michael R. Strobl, USMC (Ret)? He was born in Grand Junction in 1966. Strobl escorted home PFC Chance Phelps, a Marine who was killed in the Iraq War. Phelps actually lived in Clifton, Colorado during his senior year of high school.

Strobl wrote an essay from the diary of his experience and feelings during that journey of bringing this marine home. That essay was the basis for the 2009 movie Taking Chance, starring Kevin Bacon who portrayed Strobl in the HBO film. Now that I've learned about the story, I want to see the movie.
