There are several scenes in the movie where there are continuity problems with the helmet chin straps. For example, near the beginning of the movie, when Doc and Iggy are in the shell crater from which Iggy disappears, Doc's chin strap is tight, then loose. Similarly, when Ira Hayes comes out of his tent at the training camp, his chin strap is fastened, then unfastened. There are other examples.
There is an additional short sequence after the credits have ended.
