Private Benjamin

Factual error: When the unit is preparing for the Jump, they follow none of the correct procedure for a jump, but the most glaring mistake is that none of the Parachutes are equipped with a static line (the bright yellow nylon strap, that the parachutist hooks to a cable inside the plane to deploy his chute automatically.) Airborne infantry units always make static line jumps, so the line should have been visible on every chute.

Factual error: The Australian style "bush hat" worn by Capt. Lewis is only worn by a female drill Sgt. ie. Non-commissioned officers, never a commissioned officer (a.r 670-1).
