Chief of Naval Operations Tom Chandler is the former captain and commanding officer of the USS Nathan James. Responsible for the mission that brought the cure for the Red Flu to the world, Chandler was hailed a national hero, and promoted to Chief of Naval Operations on his return to the USA with the cure. However, a harrowing mission to Asia which wrought devastating personal and professional consequences led to Chandler’s resignation. Season four will address his story after leaving the Nathan James for the last time.

Tom Chandler is played by Eric Dane, best known for “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Marley & Me” and “Charmed”. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Rebecca Gayheart, and their two daughters.
