* TheDreaded: A place as opposed to a person, spoken of with obvious dread and respect by the veteran members of the squad, with one expressing his outright fear of it. When one of the replacements asks "What's the A Shau?" he only gets a cold stare as a reply.

* StrawCivilian: Inept, naive, or downright hostile. Multiple characters have their relationships ruined by the anti-war movement at home, and at least one ''goes back'' to Vietnam after coming home to nothing but hostility from young hippies and college kids that have a Jane Fonda-like attitude toward the NVA (even calling them "heroic" and the US soldiers "evil"), to the point where they harass a bartender that had a son in Vietnam after he died.

** Despite popular belief, statistical breakdown of American casualties in Vietnam shows that black troops were actually ''less'' likely to be killed or wounded than whites or hispanics. Doesn't mean they didn't have legitimate grievances against racism, of course.

** '''Sgt. Frantz:''' Some of you think you have problems because you're against the war. You demonstrated in school, you wear peace symbols on your steel, and you have attitudes. I'm orphan, my brother's queer, the city of Chicago got the clap from my sister, Mom drinks, Dad coughs blood, I have ringworm, immersion foot, the incurable crud and the draft ruined my chances of being a brain surgeon. People, you are in Vietnam. You have no problems. Except me. And him.

* ScareEmStraight: When showing the fresh troops how silent and deadly the NVA are vs the VC, the instructor specifically tells them to forget about "(Victor) Charlie" and worry about "Nathaniel Victor".
%%* SoundtrackDissonance: Averted. The Animals' song "We Gotta Get out of This Place" used to great effect. {{Truth in Television}}.
