Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

PFC Gomer Pyle - S2-E1

Factual error: Sgt. Carter is wearing a plain belt buckle with his dress blues uniform. Since Sgt. Carter is Gunnery Sgt, he is a staff NCO so his buckle should have the USMC emblem on the buckle. (00:24:00)

Sergeant Carter Dates a Pyle - S2-E20

Factual error: U.S. marine utility uniforms have the Marine Corp Emblem and USMC printed in black ink on the left shirt pocket. Private Duke Slater's uniform does not have it printed on his left pocket. (00:07:00)

Suggested correction: The EGA's were stenciled iron-on's from a company called Ken Nolan. Their use was optional.

When were they optional? They weren't the first 5 years I was in prior to changing to name tapes in the early 90's.

My Buddy, the War Hero - S1-E25

Factual error: Gunnery Sgt Jim Mason "Jimbo" only has rifle marksmanship badge and no pistol marksmanship badge on his uniform. As a Marine senior non-commissioned officer he should have both on his uniform like Gunnery Sgt. Carter. (00:21:00)

Question: How can Andy meet Sergeant Carter in Opie Joins the Marines if they met on the pilot episode of Gomer Pyle, USMC?

Chosen answer: There's no indication they were meeting for the first time, in fact they seem to know each other as Sgt. Carter addresses Andy only as "Sheriff". Gomer Pyle just says his two favorite people are "meeting face to face", and obviously in the pilot episode Sgt. Carter wasn't one of Pyle's favorite people yet.
