Suggested correction: Strayer didn't become a Lt. Colonel until 1945. In fact, Winters took over leading 2nd battalion of the 506th from Major Strayer when he became a Major and Strayer was promoted to lead the regiment.

Day of Days - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Easy are attacking the 88 battery, in the scene where Buck scouts out what's ahead of him before throwing grenades, you can see a soldier holding an MP40 (machine pistol), who fires one shot with the sound effect of a Kar98 rifle. (00:31:50)

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Trivia: 40 members of the cast had to go through a ten day bootcamp in which they were called by their roles in the series.

Answer: To mess with him. A lot of the "regular" soldiers didn't respect or even like Webster early on because he was a college boy. That dislike and lack of respect was deepened when Webster took what they perceived to be an extended stay in hospital after being wounded when many of their other comrades - Popeye for example - left hospital early to get back with their friends to fight.
