Corrected entry: In the scene where Forrest and Bubba meet Lt. Dan, Lt. Dan asks where Forrest and Bubba are from. They both reply that they are from Alabama. Moments later, Lt. Dan says, "So Arkansas huh?"

Correction: I think that this was intentional. Lt. Dan wasn't really listening to them when they said where they were from. He goes on to tell them that he'd been through Little Rock once. I am sure that the writers knew that Little Rock is not in Alabama, and I am sure that they remembered that Gump was not from Arkansas.

Factual error: During the 1972 New Year's Eve celebration, Forrest drinks a Dr. Pepper with a logo that wasn't devised until around the mid 80s.

Forrest Gump: Bit me directly in the but-tocks. They said it was a million dollar wound, but the Army must keep that money, 'cause I still ain't seen a nickel of that million dollars.

Trivia: Disabled U.S. veterans would tell Gary Sinise that they were inspired by his portrayal of Lt. Dan in this film. Feeling humbled because he himself was neither a veteran or disabled, he established the Gary Sinise Foundation in order to help disabled veterans adjust to their new lives. https://www.garysinisefoundation.org.
