Throughout the movie, the lowest ranking personnel are referred to as Privates and Corporals. But when the Air Force became a separate service in 1947 (about 10 years before the time depicted in the movie), the names of the ranks below Staff Sergeant were changed to Airman Basic, Airman Third Class, Airman Second Class, and Airman First Class. The general term Airman is appropriate for all of these, and should have been used instead of Private and Corporal. See more

During a ceremony to Will Stockdale and Benjamin Whitledge, a radio announcer mentions Operation Prometheus, (that Will Stockdale jumped out of and pulled Ben Whitledge out with him, to parachute to the ground) mentions privates Stockdale and Whitledge's names. Stockdale and Whitledge (in unison) each ask saying their last-name Stockdale and Whitledge? The radio announcer answers back "Yes, Stockdale and Whitledge." See more
