"It's a delicate balance, to be sure, because they have plenty of other things to occupy themselves than making movies and TV shows," Mr. Strub said. "But by the same token, we want to try to get things as realistic as possible and still keep it unclassified. It's obviously very helpful to have somebody there who can provide the technical advice and to know just how much technical advice can be provided and still remain in the unclassified world."
"We have a broad criteria to evaluate whether or not we should provide support," said Philip Strub, the Pentagon's point-man for dealing with Hollywood. "It is very broadly whether we see a given production as an opportunity to inform the American public about the U.S. military and, or, if such a production might be of some benefit to recruiting and retention programs."
