Character mistake: When Moss is arguing with the border guard at the Eagle Pass international bridge, he claims that he is a veteran of the "12th Infantry Battalion." There has never been such a thing as the 12th Infantry Battalion in either the Army or the Marines. Rather, they are based on a structure of 3-4 battalions per numbered regiment (i.e., 1st Battalion, 3rd Infantry Regiment/2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, etc). The film takes this seriously, as the guard, a veteran himself, buys Moss' story.
Trivia: After burning and exploding a car, Anton Chigurh enters a pharmacy called Mike Zoss Pharmacy, to steal syringes, antibiotics and other stuff. The Coen brothers hung out at the real "Mike Zoss Drugs" located in a small shopping center call Texa Tonka, in St. Louis Park, a first ring suburb west of Minneapolis, Minnesota, when they were growing up and named it after him in the film as an homage. Mike Zoss Productions is the name of their production company (also named after the same man). "Mr. Zoss never asked us to leave," the brothers told Vanity Fair in 2011. "Out of gratitude we named our production company after him." The drugstore, founded in 1950, was later run by Mike's son Barry.Ingabritzen
