Several people suggested movies and books that tell the USMA story; can anyone suggest something similar for USNA?
You mean MAKING it.sorry, there is not a lot of Navy books. We're too busy living history to have time to write about it.
Actually, it was the greatest recruiting effort of all time with which the Navy has ever been associated. Talking about envy. Oh, never mind. I guess Top Tank would never hack it, unless they were making a comedy.Really - I mean - I read once that most Naval Aviators claim that watching the movie "Top Gun" "made me what I am".
You're not kidding. I went in as part of that wave.Actually, it was the greatest recruiting effort of all time with which the Navy has ever been associated.
A lot of people think that "Hunt for Red October" did good things for the submarine force. But most submariners, myself included, thought it was a lousy movie.You're not kidding. I went in as part of that wave.
If they could do movies like that about SWO and subs, it would REALLY be cool. Unfortunately, having CPA's of 5 miles in three hours just isn't as exciting.
