| Errors in Military Uniforms
Having spent 22 years in the U.S. Army and the USAR, I like to pay attention to the Army uniforms worn in movies. The LTC Ironhorse is supposed to be a Special Forces officer. In one scene in hangar 15, his left shoulder unit patch depicts an unknown "leg" unit. In the next scene his left shoulder patch is properly depicted by the Special Forces arrowhead and Airborne tab.

The two doctors are wearing insignia on their "Army" uniforms that make absolutely no sense to me. The LTC's branch insignia on his left collar is incorrectly placed, and it is an insignia I have never seen before.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the acting. The special effects were adequate for 20 years ago. It is too bad the producers have not released the second season, and from what I have read, they do not plan to.

One part of the story I failed to comprehend is that in a scene the LTC has in his hands an M60 machine gun. He discards the M60 and instead relies on his 7 shot, M1911a1, .45 caliber pistol. He's much braver than I would have been.
