Character error 

The medical officer is repeatedly referred to as Commander. This could be short for Lieutenant Commander (which would be 2 1/2 stripes on his uniform), or full Commander (3 stripes on his Navy blues). He is repeatedly shown with the 2 stripes of a Navy Lieutenant. Plus, the murdered CO and the star Marine lawyer's haircut were not appropriate for USMC officers.

Marines not wearing their "covers' (cap, hat) never saw that happening. More than likely cover would mess up his (Actor's) "hair do", never saw a Marine without a "high and tidy" either.

Female Marine mentioned "latrine" which is a bathroom term commonly used by US Army personnel, not by Sailors and Marines. The correct term is "head" or "the head" which comes from the days of sailing ships when the place for the crew to relieve themselves was all the way forward on either side of the bowsprit, the integral part of the hull to which the figurehead was fastened.

Sniper, Mortar, Rocket attacks at Secure Bases like Joint U.S. Camp Leatherneck British Camp Baston of Task Force Southwest Afghanistan that Judge Advocate General Corps Officers were at, never happened, as the area between the Wall and the open area (kill zones) of Kilometers were greater than the range of known sniper rifles, rockets, mortars, just like that Democrat Hillary Clinton Lies of Sniper fire "she landed "under sniper fire" during a 1996 trip to Bosnia".

Someone mentioned this in the User Reviews section, but Commander Noah Hewitt is wearing the uniform of a Navy Lieutenant (O-3) where a Commander (O-5) should have three gold stripes on his/her sleeve. Anyone who has been in the American military would likely know this.

Revealing mistakes 

There is an A-10 Thunderbolt parked outside the hanger identified as MacDill AFB. It is extremely unlikely an A-10 Thunderbolt would be at MacDill AFB least of all outside a CENTCOM hanger.
