CO-Twin, that was the name of the ship USS Nathan James.  And my son did yell out when they didn't have their covers on.  I thought that was so funny.

Most of the wrong things in the Last ship are like when it is right or not right to salute and when to have your cover on or not.

The movie, Crimson Tide, takes place on the USS Alabama - which was my son's first boat.  Sometimes, the guys would play it on movie night and make rude remarks while it ran (like folks do with Rocky Horror...)!!

I have been watching as well and my son home on leave watched also and pointed out things that were 'Hollywood"

It is on the USS Nathan James, which is a destroyer. I got interested as my other son is on a destroyer. I got to tour his ship and on the show I know the parts. I say Hey I know where that is on the ship.

Kaye444 thanks for the article!! Makes you kinda proud that OUR boys are part of this select group of sailors!!

If you want to see a cheesy sub movie, Atomic Submarine is a 1950's era black and white B horror movie. It's a silly movie, especially in today's high tech special effect era. However, it's interesting to see a diesel boat in operation

hello all!!

my husband and I also watch "the last ship".  we think its good. I watch it also because it has to do with the navy.  I am glad I don't really know what is done right or wrong.  sometimes it is nice being oblivious!LOL

I am wondering if there are any moms on here who have sons on USS Virginia in Groton? I rode up Sunday to visit my son at the house he is renting with a bunch of other USS Virginia guys and i have been thinking about the moms group and wondering if i just met any of your sons?! All such wonderful nice polite guys. I made them a big dinner before i headed home.

LoriM, my husband & I watch the show as well, & we do enjoy it, probably for the same reason both you & your husband do, because our sons are in the Navy. I do love the situations they get themselves into though. It's good entertainment & am sorry that last Sunday was the season finally already.

I don't know if anyone has watched the show "The Last Ship" it is on TNT on Sundays. It started this summer.  My son was home and got to see a couple of the episodes.  It takes place on the USS St. James(?).  It is a Navy carrier doing research.  My son would just laugh at half the things they were doing wrong. It was ok.  I think my husband and I liked watching it because it had to do with the Navy.  There were things that we even knew don't really happen.
