Added DiffLines:

* DressingToDie: Frank dons his full "dress blues", i.e. ceremonial military uniform complete with all his rank insignia and medals [[spoiler:before his suicide attempt]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Frank is instructing Charlie to help him pack for their trip to New York, he makes a point that Charlie include his dress blues and shoulder pads. It's very subtle, but if you think about it why would Lt. Col Slade, who the next day has tailor-made suits fitted for himself and Charlie as part of what he calls an "upscale urban assignment" and proceeds to wear this throughout their stay in the capital, have needed his full dress uniform?
