    Traditionally this show and its' predecessor, JAG, have always gotten the navy part right. The production team does a really fine job in not making mistakes. This episode was surprising in that the story has an Operations Specialist Chief Petty Officer serving onboard a submarine. I was an OS for eight years. I was thrilled to see the OS insignia on the chief as the story opened. But OS's do not serve onboard submarines. I was scheduled to go out on a submarine as a guest to observe what they do in order to improve my skills as an Anti-Submarine Air Controller, but I would not call that being assigned to a submarine. That fell thru and never happened, but NCIS missed the boat on this one.
