Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

PFC Gomer Pyle - S2-E1

Factual error: Sgt. Carter is wearing a plain belt buckle with his dress blues uniform. Since Sgt. Carter is Gunnery Sgt, he is a staff NCO so his buckle should have the USMC emblem on the buckle. (00:24:00)

My Buddy, the War Hero - S1-E25

Factual error: Gunnery Sgt Jim Mason "Jimbo" only has rifle marksmanship badge and no pistol marksmanship badge on his uniform. As a Marine senior non-commissioned officer he should have both on his uniform like Gunnery Sgt. Carter. (00:21:00)

Suggested correction: The EGA's were stenciled iron-on's from a company called Ken Nolan. Their use was optional.

When were they optional? They weren't the first 5 years I was in prior to changing to name tapes in the early 90's.

Gomer and the Queen of Burlesque - S4-E21

Factual error: Gomer is a Private First Class and has one stripe. In his utility uniform Gomer doesn't have metal rank insignia on his collar. All Marines wear their rank on their utility uniforms. (00:06:00)
