Corrected entry: When we see the gravestone of Wilson, it doesn't match that he was 19 years old when killed. According to his headstone, he was born in November of 1948 and killed in October of 1967 so he would have been 18, not 19 as stated by his father.
Ron Kovic: We went to Vietnam to stop communism... We shell women and children.
Mrs. Kovic: You didn't shoot women and children! What are you saying?

Mrs. Kovic: Yes, yes that's what they told us.
Ron Kovic: Thou shalt not kill, Mom. Thou shalt not kill women and children! Thou shalt not kill! Remember? Isn't that what you taught us? Isn't that what they taught us?

Trivia: After Charlie Sheen performed brilliantly in such highly-acclaimed Oliver Stone films as "Platoon" and "Wall Street," film maker Stone had a face-to-face meeting with Sheen to discuss him starring in "Born on the Fourth of July." Charlie Sheen came away from the meeting confident that the lead role belonged to him. However, after several weeks, Charlie Sheen was stunned and infuriated to learn (from his brother, Emilio Estevez) that Oliver Stone had chosen Tom Cruise for the lead role. Stone never even bothered to call Sheen with the news.
