Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
Sal was originally written as an Italian-American with a heavy Queens accent. Bryan Cranston suggested, with Linklater's blessing, to perform the character as half-Irish.
If you could just see yourself right now. You look like you just had a lobotomy. What's wrong with you?
O'Toole: This is reality.
Sal Nealon: Reality? My ass. It's all made-up. Let me ask you this, huh, how many times on this show have you seen the cops arrest, you know...
Colonel Wilits is wearing silver jump wings with a star above it. Only the army wears this badge, the Marines wear basic silver jump wings if they have fewer than 10 jumps or no combat jumps. Otherwise, they have gold wings.
