There's a blatant mistake at the beginning of the episode... Agent Barker (Patrick Swayze) is looking at the files of two Iraq war veterans who have been murdered, identifying one as a Marine Lance Corporal; the other as a PFC in the Army. But the two photos in his hand both show men in U.S. Army uniforms. A bit later, Agent Ellis Dove, who is supposed to be a Marine vet, refers to his decision not to re-enlist by saying he didn't "re-up." That's an Army term. Re-enlisting in the Navy or Marine Corps is referred to as "shipping over." Additionally, two characters refer to the dead Marine as "corporal." That's just not done. A corporal is a non-commissioned officer; a lance corporal is not. You NEVER address, nor refer to a lance corporal as "corporal."
