The film begins in Vietnam in 1972. In several scenes the term LRRP (pronounced "lurp"), which stands for Long Range Recon Patrol, is used for Rhodes missing son's unit, including a LRRP tab above his unit patch in his shadow box. In 1969 all LRRP companies, which were attached to all major Army divisions in Vietnam, were re-designated and called Ranger Companies. These companies were tasked with recon patrol for the larger division they were assigned to. See more
