Trivia: The makers of the show did a pre-screening of the pilot with active duty troops and veterans. The audience spotted so many military errors that Fox did a "spot-the-error" contest so people would write in what was wrong with the show.


Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: While the brothers were fighting with each other, they were interrupted by the flag being raised and stopped fighting to salute the flag. The wrong song was playing when the flag was being hoisted. On real Army bases, Reveille is supposed to play during the raising of the flag, but the show had the end of "To the Colors" (what is played when the flag is being lowered in the evening) playing instead.
