Factual error: At the end of the movie when Gunny Highway and his men land at what is supposed to be Cherry Point, the band playing the music should be the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band, but is in fact the 1st Marine Division band as can be seen by the 1st Marine Division insignia on the drummer's drum.

More quotes from Heartbreak Ridge

Question: Why was the platoon making such a big deal about wearing shirts during their exercises? I would think they would be better off wearing shirts so they would not get a sunburn. So what was the big deal?

Chosen answer: Gunny Highway insisted that they all wear the same shirts as he himself was wearing. If they showed up in a different one, he made them go shirtless. The reasons for this were 1) to break through their rebellious attitudes and teach them to follow his orders, 2) to make them look and feel unified, and 3) to develop resourcefulness and adaptability in them.
