When U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Mike Strobl volunteered to escort the body of a fellow Marine on a final journey home, he had no idea how the mission would affect him and the many people he would meet along the way.

Pfc. Chance Phelps, posthumously promoted to lance corporal, was killed in a firefight in Al Anbar Province, Iraq, in April 2004. Strobl, a Desert Storm veteran with 17 years of military service, requested that he be assigned military escort duty to accompany Phelps’ remains from Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to the Phelps family in Dubois, Wyo.
