Factual errors 

Early in the film the Captain Salbo character wears a tropical Army Class A uniform, without decorations; decorations are mandatory on this uniform, especially with his service record described in the dialogue. Elvis' lieutenant character also wears Air Force service dress (Combo 1) with pilot wings but no decorations. USAF officers in 1964 would have at least the National Defense Service Medal. Also, military creases are not allowed in USAF uniform shirts, as Elvis' character wore.

Captain Salbo tells one of his men, "Get me SAC Headquarters in the Pentagon" SAC has been headquartered at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska since 1948, well before the time frame of this story.
