Hollywood to the Navy (HTTN) is an outreach program designed to introduce writers, producers, directors and production executives to the personnel and capabilities of the United States Naval Service to foster more accurate representations of the Navy in works of fiction. The program takes groups on tours of bases, ships, submarines and specific units, including EOD, in an effort to introduce entertainment industry leaders to Navy war-fighting assets.
Tours are scheduled every 6-8 weeks. Please email email@example.com with any questions, or to sign-up for an upcoming tour.
