** In the book, it was more of a BatmanGambit: The Major who confronted Encino Man was a Marine aviator assigned to the unit to coordinate air strikes, and had no actual authority over Encino Man and his men, despite outranking them. So seeing Encino Man confusedly shouting into a radio handset, he instead orders the Captain to give him all of his radios. Encino Man complied without understanding, and a few moments later figured out a much more direct solution to their problem than what he was trying to do before.

* Despite being a general fuck up elsewhere, Captain Encino Man gets a cool moment on the second attempt to cross the bridge. With one of their Humvee stuck in the bridge, Major Eckloff gives the Captain an american football style pep talk, which results in the Captain gathering a few men and manhandling the 2,500kg vehicle out of the hole.
** That moment is also an awesome moment for the Major, who manages to shut up Captain America with a death glare.

* During the bridge ambush, Fick jumps out of his Humvee to get shit unfucked, but after telling the last vehicle in the line to stop engaging and back the hell up, he runs up to Rudy and immediately asks how they can best get everyone out of there. He's in command, but he knows to trust people with more experience than him.

* That part where Recon crossed the whole country in about three days and blew through the Iraqi Army so fast they outran their supply lines. That was pretty cool.

* Kocher threatening to "fuck up" Captain America to his face if he doesn't stop firing AK's at things. The Captain is obviously shaken and later in the day buries all his AK's.
** Even better when Captain America tries to bayonet a prisoner Kocher flat out slugs him.
