  • Acceptable Targets: Several strips referenced the fact that Italians seemed especially eager to pilfer any US Army property that wasn't nailed down, and pry loose any that was. This seems to have been Truth in Television.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "My future is sealed, Willie. I'm gonna be a perfessor on types o' European soil." maybe forty years too late, but...doesn't that sound like the perfect rebuttal to modern "be all you can be" commercials?"
    • Also borders on Genius Bonus because after the war, the GI Bill gave returning veterans the opportunity to go to college and study up to become professors...
  • Values Dissonance: Some might question the need to make jokes about war...
