Kyle Vogel and Lt Tripp have a playful argument over whether corn is a vegetable or a grain but never arrive at an answer. In fact, both are correct. Corn is a vegetable because it is cultivated for its edible parts but it is also a grain because it is the dry seed of a grass species. See more »
The Soldiers in the film are shown wearing a newer version of the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) that was not yet available in 2005. The IR tabs on their shoulders are always shown to be folded under the pocket, but the original ACU had the IR tab itself on the outside of the pocket and had to be covered when not being used.

Lieutenant Bud Vogel:
[letter to parents]
Although it's a danger we all willing face, so soldier wishes to meet his end on the field of battle. Yet offered two paths, would gladly choose death in the name of justice on the last day before victory, over life in the grip of tyranny. Your son could not choose his time to die, but rest assured on his life, he chose to server the cause of justice. Justice will prevail.

I really enjoyed the movie, and appreciate a war film thats family friendly and sparks conversation. Memorial Day gave a touching portrayal of how serving our country touches us all... The men and women who serve, the ones waiting at home, the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, kids, grand kids, and friends. As a fan of James Cromwell, what a treat to see his son - a spitting image- play him as a young man (great actor too). Great to Finally watch a war movie that goes beyond the battlefield scenes. As someone who has family who are Veterans of WWII, Korean, Vietnam, and Iraq (big family), I plan to go back and ask those still living about what's in their footlocker. Maybe the answers will help us in a way that provides insight, healing, and connection. Great movie, and not just for war-buffs or Veterans. Well done!
