** There is also the very nice moment when a vet speaks to Cora Raikes and welcomes her on duty, not as a woman in "his navy," but as a destroyer crew member ready to perform with a battleship.

* One for the aliens. It may have been partially pragmatic and caused a lot of damage to our heroes, but the aliens launch what amounts to [[BigDamnHeroes a commando raid to rescue one of their own captured by the humans]].

* Also watching Canales who has literally admitted that he believes himself to be half a man and has "no will to live" slowly regain his posture and decorum as a warrior and [[spoiler:then go head to head with an advanced alien]] as a double amputee. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. By far, my favorite character and plotline of the entire movie. Watching him get his medal first choked me up a bit.
