In a conversation with Klink, Hogan mentions having been assigned to duties "...at the Pentagon..." However, the dating of events in the series indicate that Hogan was an inmate of Stalag 13 from February of 1942 (the date given for events in the pilot) through the end of the war. The Pentagon was not dedicated until 15 January 1943 (but was partially occupied as of 1 April 1942). Since Hogan was already in Stalag 13 by February of 1942, he could only have been employed at the Pentagon as a construction worker, not an officer. See more
