-->'"'Mr. Thompson just said some impressive things about me, but they're not true. I'm no one's idea of a hero, least of all mine. When people ask me what I did [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne over there]], what I tell them is 'I made it back'. We fought for the idea that democracy was worth saving. We fought for our mothers, for our sons, for our wives. We fought for America, and I believe it was worth it. (pauses for applause, then holds up the list of names) These are all brave men."''

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Averts it just as much as ''MadMen''. Casual domestic abuse, racial slurs, midget boxing, and [[UncleTomfoolery a band in blackface]] feature just in the pilot. A black man shooting a white one in self defense still faces a lynching no matter how well connected he might be.
