The last three months of filming for America's Navy have been a wild ride. And for Pathfinder, the 4th of July marks the symbolic conclusion of production for #ForgedByTheSea.
During production, we went underway with two warships, an aircraft carrier in the Atlantic and a missile destroyer in the Pacific, and filmed at over a half dozen different bases.

Did you know that when a sailor goes on deployment with a ship that they could be at sea for up to 9 months, working 7 days a week? Or that America's 13 nuclear-powered carriers only have to refuel once every 25 years?
At every turn we soaked new experiences that made us proud to be American, proud to be filmmakers, and honored to work with the Navy.
But nothing could beat getting to meet many of the dedicated sailors that serve our country each and every day.
To celebrate the trip, we put together a photo blog from our first leg of production including filming aboard the aircraft carrier CVN 77 USS Bush in the Atlantic and on base in Norfolk, Virginia.
