Did anyone notice when Chris Kyle goes to the Navy recruiter to sign-up for the Navy, there was a GIANT USS Tarawa LHA-1 picture on the wall! I jumped out of my seat when I saw that.

Funny you say that Rick. When I saw that movie I pointed it out to my wife that it was an LHA or an LHD, but I wasn't sure which one.

I use to have the picture on my phone, but I can't find it. I'll look for it on my iPad. I wanted to post it to this thread.

Were you able to see the "1" in the picture from the movie?

Rick, how can you tell that this is the USS Tarawa LHA-1 from this shot?
I can tell it's an LHA or LSD, but that's about it. Just like I noticed it at the theater.

I don't remember if I saw the number 1 or not. Someone going to the movie will have to let us know. I saw the movie at a digital movie theater. The movie was very sharp. I just don't remember.

I saw the movie as well, but I was never able to see the hull number. Most all theaters are digital now.

I tried blowing the picture up, but it is too burry. I don't want to go to the movie just to find out. Someone will be able to answer it when it comes out on DVD.

I have not seen the movie yet but it is definitely on my DVD list. Will have to watch closely during that seen. I am impressed that someone picked up on that! You should be an Investigator with that attention to detail!

Yes I saw that in the movie as well. Not sure which ship but if you look hard enough you can make out the 5 in gun on the port side. Making it an LHA.
