Did You Know?


During a confrontation the visiting vice admiral threatens to take away Chegwidden's "bars on his sleeves", but that's not a correct expression. Naval officers do not wear BARS on their sleeves; they wear STRIPES on the sleeves of their dress blues. In the real world of the US Navy, the visitor would threaten either his stripes or his stars (the stars of a flag officer). See more »


Admiral Hercules Elgin: You want to cross swords with me, Chegwidden? Cause if we get into this, you might just find yourself fighting to keep the bars on your sleeve.
Admiral Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Well, I never meet a Seal yet who didn't like a good bar fight, sir.
