Just like war movies

As a kid I played army and watched war movies. Then I spent two years "serving" my country during a war where the young men and women of the lower classes of society protected the privileged young men and women of society from having to be involved (but that's another story).

Anyway, after my time, no war movies were very real or authentic having been trained in two combat MOSs. I could pick apart all the BS very easily in the infantry movies. But I still watched them. So being a life long sailor who has had a life long history of errors and omissions, I will enjoy the movie anyway.
