I only purchased this dvd because the guy I'm dating is in the military. Even though he says that most of the events do not happen on military bases, I love how ABC brought the series to life. From watching the dvd, I don't think they have stretched the truth that that much. I can actually visualize some of the events taking place. Overall, I highly recommend this dvd. It gives you an inside look at some things that could possibly take place. It's great acting, drama, characters, etc. I just love it! I can't wait for the next season.
