Did You Know?


One of the fallacies of this show was when flight ops were taking place, some of the crew members were lounging on the deck of the carrier. This would be insane and dangerous, and it would be forbidden. See more »

Let me clear this up
13 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series was never filmed on a carrier. It was filmed on the USS Vandegrift FFG 48 which is a Parry class frigate. I know this because I was stationed on the Vandergrift at the time of the filming. The entire basis of the show was BS from the beginning and the "stars" and crew made our lives miserable from the moment they stepped onto the pier. The navy pulled its support for the show due to our ships captain writing a scathing letter to the secretary of the navy outlining the way in which these people conducted themselves while guests aboard our home. The way they portrayed the men and women in uniform had nothing to do with it losing support, although it should have.
