Goofs

Nicholas Brody's rank changes from Sergeant (E5) to Gunnery Sergeant (E7) and back within the series. However, his service stripes also change on his uniforms. When he is wearing a Gunnery Sergeant's uniform he has three service stripes on his uniform indicating a minimum of 15 years of service in the Marine Corps. While on his uniform as a Sergeant in the episode Achilles Heel he has only one service stripe indicating a minimum of 5 years in the Marine Corps. but less than 10. This is not possible though because he spent 8 years as a POW and was a Sergeant before this time, so he would have to have been in the Marine Corps for about 4-5 years before becoming a POW.
