A movie, obviously not supported by the Navy . . . and it showed. There was a lot of, gee how should I say it, wrong stuff. Yeah, that'll work for now. That extremely unfortunate accident had, and still has, caused a whole basket full of long term issues, both in the Navy and out. It's hard to believe just how much crap was slung around due to the lies and innuendo that the event brought up.
