Although the film takes place in 1942-1943, Camp Pendleton is flying the fifty star (post 1959) flag, not the forty-eight star design, which would have been correct.

The TWA airliner that is shown flying the men around the country is a Martin 404, which was not introduced into TWA's fleet until July 1951, six years after the war ended.

Continuity 

Defending the riverbank, Jack's machine gun jams and he leaves it for a rifle. Moments later he's back shooting the Browning. Really poor editing.
