CHANCE PHELPS MADE the final trip home to Dubois, Wyoming last week as part of a procuedure that I remember well from my days as a C-141 aircraft commander. It was never joyful accompanying the remains of a serviceman home. But I will never forget the glowing testimonies that percolated out of the funerals and wakes. You didn't have to attend the burial of Chance Phelps to be affected by intense feeling of respect surrounding his journey home. And you don't have to be pro-American to recognise respect for the fallen.
