Question: At the beginning of the movie when Lt. Kaffee and Lt. Weinberg are first being assigned to the case by "Division" they both have on 1st LT bars on their right collar. Shouldn't they be wearing Captain bars as the equivalent of Navy Lt is a Captain in all other branches? The Sr. officer in the room is a Captain in the Navy or Col. in other branches and wears the "full bird" on his collar.
Question: Why did the Judge tell Col. Jessup that he did not need to answer the question about ordering the Code Red? Essentially the same question was posed to Lt. Kendrick, and he had to answer.
Question: While questioning the doctor on the witness stand, Kaffee asks him if a heart condition could have caused the fatal lactic acidosis rather than a mysterious poison on the rag stuffed in his mouth. Under the circumstances of the Marine's death, wouldn't a complete autopsy have been performed to positively determine the cause of death? And if an autopsy were performed, wouldn't the heart condition have easily been discovered?
Question: In the scene where Jessep, Markinson, and Kendrick are discussing what to do with Private Santiago, Jessep says he wants Santiago to make 4-6-4-6 on his next proficiency report. What does this score mean?

Question: Kaffee is explaining the plea deal where they would only spend six months in prison. Dawson explains that they won't accept the deal because that would mean they would be pleading guilty and would likely be dishonorably discharged. Even if the "conduct unbecoming" charge were dropped, as per the deal, wouldn't the judge likely order a DD anyway because their actions resulted in the death of a Marine? And wouldn't a smart lawyer, like Kaffee, know this and explain it to them?
