Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the scene when Chad comes home, he is wearing Marpat Desert Cammies without name tags and his PFC chevrons are upside down. The character is later revealed to be an impostor who isn't a member of the Marines or any other branch of the armed services, it's natural that he would not be aware that he was wearing these things incorrectly.
