The Making of the Film "13 Days"

During May 2000, members of Tin Can Sailors assisted in filming of a new Kevin Costner movie about the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Entitled "13 Days," the movie is expected to be released in November 2000.

Here are a few photos of our members, the USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. (DD-850) playing herself, and the same ship playing the USS John R. Pierce (DD-753).
