Factual error: Murtagh's picture shows him with a 173rd Airborne patch on his sleeve, and he later says his friend Hunsaker was wounded in 1965 in the Ia Drang in Vietnam. However, the 173rd Airborne was fighting at Bien Hoa at the time, which is hundreds of miles south of the Ia Drang. Although Murtagh may have been transferred before the picture was taken, it is highly unlikely that someone who "took a bayonet to the lung" would return to active duty so fast.
