Just looked those up; they weren't them. From what I vaguely remember about the plot, it was a LT or LCDR who was the original protagonist, with his dutiful housewife, and he suddenly dies in an accident and from what I remember, a more senior officer, a CDR or CAPT, someone he considered a mentor gets to the bottom of it for his wife's sake and improves safety within the Navy. I remember them almost exclusively wearing SDB's in the film.
You got me stumped...but I want to find it and watch it.

This is not directly about the tactical elements of warfare but hits heavy on the ideational side of things. Wadja, I think, really encapsulates the convergence of the political and military in social dynamics in Poland. His most recent film before his death, Katyn, shows how far Poland has come in being able to reflect on its past.

Top Gun 2 is in production right now. No time to watch “Ashes and Diamonds” I’m waiting to see how they work Val Kilmer into the story line!!
