The story of Easy Company of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division, and their mission in World War II Europe, from Operation Overlord, through V-J Day.
During the actors' ten-day "Basic Training" they were required to stay in character at all times. The only exception was the "officers", who were treated just as poorly as the "enlisted men" by the training corps.
Now just think... if you had any class or style like me, somebody might've mistaken you for somebody.
Sgt. Martin: Oh, like your fuckin' Sergeant?
Frank Perconte: I'm just kiddin'.
In "Currahee", Robert Strayer is (correctly) wearing the rank insignia of a major when Easy Company is celebrating its paratrooper qualification. Strayer was promoted to lieutenant colonel in January or February of 1943, and Winters refers to him as such during his explanation to Sobel about the latrine inspection incident. On D-Day (in episode 2) just prior to the attack on the 105mm guns at Brecourt Manor, Winters and another officer refer to Strayer as a major. He had been an LTC long enough (16 or 17 months) to rule out a slip of the tongue, especially by two different officers.
