A soldier mentions the Outpost and the men's relationships to be a "band of brothers". Band of Brothers is highly acclaimed mini-series about the 101st Airborne, whose leader, Capt. Winters, led a successful assault on a fixed position of German outposts; the attack is now taught at West Point. In this film, the Americans are forced to defend their outpost from a similar - but a far more highly out-manned - attack.
First Lt Benjamin Keating:
So how do we do our jobs and stay safe? We need to keep a good relationship with the locals. Respect keeps us safe.
When SSG Romesha is using the machine gun on the generator, and it is hit by the RPG, it would not leap as shown - the commercial generators are extremely heavy and an RPG warhead only has a few pounds of explosives.
After the ending credit song starts, the pictures of the KIA soldiers are shown along with a clip of the actor that played every one of them in the movie. After the song ends, there are various clips and interviews with the real soldiers and some of the actors, including two clips from the TV show "An Unlikely Hero" with Ty Carter and some words from him at the very end.
