GMU Economics Student's Journal Becomes Hollywood Movie

In April 2004, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl, USMC, came across the name of 19-year-old Lance Corporal Chance Phelps, a young Marine who had been killed by hostile fire in Al Anbar Province, Iraq. Strobl, a Desert Storm veteran with 17 years of military service, requested that he be assigned for military escort duty to accompany Chance’s remains to his family in Dubois, Wyoming. Strobl, who is now a PhD student in Mason’s economics program, recently had his journal turned into a movie called “Taking Chance.”
