Factual error: The announcer says that it will be the 53rd Army-Navy game, but the game has been played every year since 1890, with no games in the years 1894-98, 1909, 1917-18, and 1928-29, so this game would be number 51. Additionally, at the end of the episode we find out the result was Navy 42 - Army 36. While Navy won all three games during the Korean conflict, none of those games ended with such a score. The score in the 1950 game was 14-2.
Factual error: When Klinger's walking with Captain Allen and the Stars and Stripes photographer, just before their introductions to "Ben" they pass an empty corrugated box with its flap open, and the recycling symbol can be seen on the flap. Recycling symbols were not in use until about 20 years later.
