Captain Nathan Brittles: You made a fool out of a couple of young lieutenants. That's never against Army regulations.

Factual error: in the beginning of the movie there is a shot of the flag being raised over Fort Stark and the sound of a bugle is playing. The bugler is playing "Retreat" which is only played when the flag is coming down; he should be playing "To The Colors".
