%%* SemperFi: And how.

%%* * SemperFi: And how.The series primarily focuses on the exploits of the 1st Marine division, as well as the 5th Marine division during the Battle of Iwo Jima. The fact that "Chesty" Puller gets focus in the first few episodes should cement this.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Chesty Puller looks pretty amused by the fact that [[spoiler: John Basilone nearly threw up on his Medal of Honor citation.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Averted. When one of the Marines arrives home in Mississippi at a train station, there are segregated signs visible due to the Jim Crow laws the state had in the 1940s.

* BlackComedy: When Jake narrowly escapes being murdered by a Japanese Soldier (as Jake was running away with his pants around his knees), several marines have a laugh at his expense immediately after. [[DeadpanSnarker Snafu]] even suggest Jake was in a sack race, and pantomimes accordingly.
** Crowning this moment is when Jake, [[{{Adorkable}} with pathetic chagrin and shame]], admits to everyone that [[BringMeMyBrownPants he just had an accident]]. The marines not already laughing lose it (except Ack Ack).

Added DiffLines:

* AluminumChristmasTrees: First episode: Guadalcanal, Tenaru. The literal mountains of Japanese dead seems ridiculously excessive, like an action movie. But it really happened just like that. The Japanese lost over 700 men at night, in that one sandbar. The Marines only lost 44.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassGrandpa: See the entry on Gunny Haney above. His real-life counterpart was 48... probably not a grandpa yet, but certainly much older than the average marine. But age hasn't slowed him down... he's still as badass as they come.
