Re: who told you that it was supported by the armed forces?
The only way NCIS and JAG can ever have any access whatsoever to the US military, its facilities and hardware, is for that institution to support those productions, fully.
The caveat of course is for that institution, no matter what the plot, to come up smelling like roses throughout and in the end to have been proved to have had all its marbles in order (including PC straight down the line), ie, no rogue sub officers, no General Jack D Rippers, no Fail Safe failing and launching Vindicator bombers to the USSR and no driven destroyer captains exclaiming within earshot of a traumatised Danno, "If he fires one, I'll fire one".
The US military officially on the big and small screens has its act together.
first and foremost- it's TELEVISION. It's SOLE purpose is to get people to watch the commercials in between. The WRITERS come up with the shows. How do they keep doing it? watch old episodes of OTHER crime dramas, and put a sailor suit on the characters.....
