** TruthInTelevision: In the 1980s, some teenage punks decided to go over to a mostly-WW2-era VFW post with the avowed purpose of "beating up the geezers." The punks ended up in the hospital with broken limbs, missing teeth, and one eye gouged out...by some guys who were collecting Social Security.

* AcePilot: Several tell their stories, including one who enlisted with the Canadians as a teenager lying about his age, got found out after scoring several kills, joined the Marines (where they didn't care how old you were as long as you could fly), shot down quite a few more Commies, then, after turning 18, joined the Kentucky Air National Guard to score still ''more'' kills flying with the Kentucky ANG...winding up with a confirmed score of 70.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When a Marine unit shoots the hell out of an ALA[[note]]American Liberation Army, i.e., US citizens who fight on the side of the Soviets; see ''Les Collaberateurs'', below[[/note]] unit that committed an atrocity, one of the members of that unit gets arrested on charges of treason, murder, arson, unlawful destruction of personal and real property, violation of civil rights under color of law...and ''violating the Clean Air Act of 1970.'' (Those Soviet combat vehicles do NOT meet federal emissions regulations, particularly after they brew up.)[[note]]This was after the platoon corpsman talked the Marine making the arrest out of shooting the guy out of hand. [[FateWorseThanDeath Shooting him might have been merciful compared to siccing the EPA attorneys on him]].[[/note]]

* DeadlyGas: Chemical weapons are used on occasion by the combatants; one infamous example given is where a TV reporter, taking a firm grasp on the IdiotBall, dismasked to prove that it was all just propaganda and there were no chemical weapons being used...as the unit she was embedded with ''was being nerve gassed''. The [[SemperFi Marines]] with her were frozen with shock, then horror at the act and its results, some of ''them'' becoming casualties when they had to [[NauseaFuel dismask to vomit]], and after the first few seconds the video of the event [[GoryDiscretionShot is classified at the highest level]] as too horrific to be viewed.

* FullFrontalAssault: A female soldier chases down and captures a Cuban soldier who took her encampment by surprise while she's wearing combat boots...and ''only'' combat boots.

* MacrossMissileMassacre: A Soviet air raid on Los Angeles makes the fatal mistake of crossing the Port of Long Beach, where the missile testing ship USS ''Norton Sound'', testing the AEGIS radar and vertical-launch SM-2 missile system, was docked...and the officer in command of the ship put the system in 'Special Auto'. [[RocksFallEveryoneDies Missiles flew, every plane died]].

* MassOhCrap: A quadruple missile launcher salvaged from a Soviet cruiser sunk in the [[NoodleIncident Battle of Puget Sound]] was mounted in front of an American Legion post in Washington state. Several years after the war, it was opened up for refurbishment...and [[OhCrap found to still be loaded]]. A U.S. Navy [[BombDisposal EOD]] squad is called in...and discovers the loading is ''nuclear''. Cue [[DefconFive SPAZCON ONE]].
* TheMutiny: ThePoliticalOfficer of ''K-236'' decides to incite a mutiny at the end of the war against the...less-politically-enthusiastic...officers. [[spoiler: He winds up being [[ThrownOutTheAirlock shot out of a torpedo tube]].]]

* LesCollaborateurs: The ALA (American Liberation Army) is a military/security force raised in the occupied states.

* LaResistance: Quite a few. Some were [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVillified heroic]], some [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized weren't]].
