Sergeant Carter Dates a Pyle - S2-E20

Factual error: U.S. marine utility uniforms have the Marine Corp Emblem and USMC printed in black ink on the left shirt pocket. Private Duke Slater's uniform does not have it printed on his left pocket. His uniform also doesn't have the proper pocket flaps. (00:07:00)

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.

They were optional when I was in from 1967 to 1970.

Nope. Marine order c-52178 states they must be marked.

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)

Sergeant Carter Dates a Pyle - S2-E20

Other mistake: Private Duke Slater's utility uniform shirt is different from the other Marines. Duke's uniform has square pocket flaps with the button exposed, an exposed button front shirt and the sleeves do not have button cuffs. The other Marines' uniforms have tapered pocket flaps with a hidden button, a hidden button front shirt and the sleeves have button cuffs. (00:05:00 - 00:06:00)

Sgt. Carter: Pyle. My old grandmother could do better than that.

More trivia for Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

Answer: There's no indication they were meeting for the first time, in fact they seem to know each other as Sgt. Carter addresses Andy only as "Sheriff". Gomer Pyle just says his two favorite people are "meeting face to face", and obviously in the pilot episode Sgt. Carter wasn't one of Pyle's favorite people yet.
