Lone Survivor

Factual error: When the seals are tumbling down the mountain one of them almost lands on a rattlesnake. There are no rattlesnakes native to Afghanistan or any other part of Asia. They occur only in the western hemisphere.

Factual error: In many shots we see a Marc Lee memorial patch. Marc Lee was killed August 2, 2006. Operation Redwing was June 28, 2005, more than a year earlier.

Factual error: During the final attack on the village by Apache helicopters, they are shown with front-mounted machine guns instead of the 30mm cannon. Apaches are not armed with a front machine gun.

Factual error: Throughout the film, the SEALs are seen wearing Mechanix gloves, but the type seen are the current type. What distinguishes them from older models is the velcro wrist strap. The older models had an elastic, velcro strap, while the newer ones have a reinforced, rubberized velcro strap. The newer type as seen in the film is inaccurate for the time period.
