Eric Dane Accepts Navy Medals Earned By His Late Father

Eric Dane shows off a shadow box containing his father’s Navy medals at a screening for his series The Last Ship on Friday (June 12) at The Newseum in Washington, D.C.

The 42-year-old actor also accepted a flag in honor of his late father.

Eric was just seven when his father died of a gunshot wound.

“He was a Navy man and ended up becoming an architect and interior designer. He was a troubled soul,” Eric said last year. “He died of a gunshot wound. My grandmother thinks it was an accident. Everybody’s got a different opinion on it. My mother raised two kids.”

The two-hour season two premiere of The Last Ship will air on Sunday, June 21 on TNT.
