A/N: This is a tongue-in-cheek response to a real-life article by Martha Groves in the Los Angeles Times on 07/30/11 entitled "Shops want Navy on board." Hilariously, the article mentions Mark Harmon and the NCIS television series.


"Hey, Sam, check this out." Callen held up his copy of the LA Times.

"What, you read?" Sam joked.

Callen rolled his eyes. "NCIS gave the sailors on the Abraham Lincoln maps telling them to avoid parts of San Pedro during Navy Week."

"They do that sort of thing all the time, G." Sam grabbed the article and looked it over. "See, says right here: 'The Navy routinely briefs sailors about crime and other conditions in foreign and stateside ports.'"

"I always thought they were telling you where to find the fun," Callen quipped.
