1 mistake in Turmoil

Turmoil - S11-E8

Factual error: When Stabler's son Dickie is trying to join the Army, Dickie's recruiter tells Stabler that he can join at 16 with parental consent. This is incorrect, you have to be at least 17 to join the U.S. Army even with parental consent. Even if you could join at 16, the consent papers that Dickie bought to Stabler at the end of the episode can't be signed without a recruiter or notary public present and signing the papers at the same time. This is to prevent cases where a parent who had a change of heart can claim they didn't sign and to prevent 17-year olds from enlisting without consent by forging their parents' signatures.
