Factual error: When the Ranger trainees first meet Samuel L. Jackson, he's wearing the rank of a Specialist on his collars even though he's a Master Sergeant. Title 18, Chapter 33 of the US code prevents the unauthorized wear of a military uniform (among other things), however this does not automatically correct the mistake since a common misconception is that one slight alteration is sufficient to make the uniform legal. Having the wrong rank on is too obvious of an alteration, especially for anybody who has spent more than a day in or around the Army and would still be punishable by law, if he was dressed in an attempt to fool your average citizen outside of a movie.

You each have one rifle, one side arm, and one white phosphorous grenade. This is a live E&E, so please keep those weapons safetied, so you are not to shoot off your nonexistent dicks.
Sgt. Nathan West: I do not care that you are triple volunteers. I do not care that you think you are hard. And I especially don't give a rat's fuck what 4-star general's dick you sucked to get the privilege of being able to stand before me today.
Question: Why did the REAL Pike pick Kapler up and take him out? Was it a plan of Section 8 or what?
