ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE follows three individuals--a salsa-dancing Marine, an ordnance seaman on the verge of becoming a new father, and a fighter pilot with a soft heart--who all serve on the USS Nimitz, one of the largest warships on the planet. The PBS special offers a glimpse into the servicemen's lives, in an attempt to humanize the many courageous individuals who stand ready to protect the U.S. from danger.
Description by PBS Video:
More than 5,000 sailors live onboard the USS Nimitz, a nuclear aircraft carrier. All have been forced to leave friends, family and loved ones behind for a six-month deployment to the Persian Gulf, during which they'll face confining quarters, harsh temperatures, extreme work conditions and conflicts over faith and duty. ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE focuses on a pilot, Marine and sailor in different phases of fatherhood, and impending fatherhood, as they struggle with family issues while serving their country in the high-stakes, dangerous environment of an aircraft carrier.
