Captain Koons states that he and Butch's Coolidge's father were in a North Vietnamese prison camp for five years and that Coolidge has spoken often about his son. As the Viet Nam War ended in April of 1975, and assuming that Butch is between six and ten years old, this means that Koons and Coolidge were in the prison camp together starting no later than 1970. The Clutch Cargo show on the television was produced in 1959 with a total of 52 episodes and it appeared in reruns for through the late sixties. U.S. combat forces were not deployed in Viet Nam until 1965. Assuming that Koon's visit was shortly after his release, which would have been in 1975, this would mean that the adult Butch is between 26 and 30 years old, which is young for a prize fighter whose abilities are in natural decline. At the time of filming, Bruce Willis was 39 years old.
