My father said the army makes all men one, but you never know which one. He didn't know Roland Bozz.
The soldiers in this movie are being trained for combat in Vietnam. The current issue weapon of that time period was the M-16A1 rifle. This is different from the weapon seen on the movie poster as that is an older US Air Force M-16. This can be noted as the Air Force model has a three prong flash hider but the M-16A1 has a bird cage style flash hider which was the weapon used throughout the movie.
