Factual error: In the entire movie it's quite obvious Sean Penn has a digital watch on, even though the face is on the inside of his wrist it is occasionally visible, and the modern rubber watch band also gives it away, especially in his close-ups.

Factual error: When Woody Harroldson pulls the pin on the grenade on his belt, it sits there by the spoon. A grenade is charged by the spoon flying off and the blast cap striking the top of the grenade lighting the fuse. If the spoon is still attached, it shouldn't go off.

Alex Fulle

Factual error: When reading the dear John letter, his wife is asking for a divorce, saying she fell in love with an Air Force Captain. At that point in history, it was the Army Air Corps. The Air Force was not an entity yet.
