Other mistake: During the big protest march scene which is supposed to have taken place in the early '70's, one Vietnam vet who is sitting in a wheelchair is clearly wearing a pair of high top Reebok sneakers introduced in the late '80's.
Continuity mistake: When Tom Cruise is lying in his hospital bed and begins freaking out, he knocks over a pitcher from the small table next to him. In the next shot the pitcher is back on top of the table. (00:57:00)
Visible crew/equipment: When the guys walk from the deli, talking about which girl they are taking to the prom, you see a reflection in the cars parked along the side, of a crew member walking with a boom mic.
Factual error: During the closing credits, two songs appear misspelled: "Hace un ano": The correct spelling is "Hace un año" - okay, not all keyboards have the Spanish "ñ" - , and Meleguena. This one is waaaay wrong: The correct spelling is Malagueña.
Factual error: In the opening scene when the kids are playing "War" in the woods, Ron Kovic as a child is carrying a replica of a Beretta M9 handgun. However, Beretta M9's weren't even designed until the 1980s.
Continuity mistake: After Kovic is walking with his crutches, falls and his bone breaks, the crutches keep changing positions between shots.
