Factual errors 

Tom Hitlz is referred to as Corporal throughout the movie. However, the insignia patch on the Class A uniform he wears at his welcome home party is Private First Class (PFC). He is neither a Specialist nor a Corporal. He was a PFC.

Tom's uniform has an 82nd Airborne patch on both shoulders. In the Army you would wear the patch you served with overseas and the other patch would be of the division or unit you are now assigned to when you came home.

Tom Hilts is constantly referred to as a corporal, which is an E-4 rank in the Army. However, he is part of the 82nd Airborne (Infantry) so the rank of E-4 is referred to as Specialist, as the correct Specialist insignia on his Class A Uniform shows.
