[show]Caje's full name and rank was Pfc. Paul Lemay, Kirby's was Pvt. William G. Kirby, Nelson's was Pvt. Billy Nelson. Littlejohn's first name was never given, and while Saunders on a few occasions was called "Chip" by soldiers who had known him in the past, including Lt. Hanley--who was in the same unit with him when both were NCOs--it was apparently a nickname and his real first name was never given. In season 1, "A Day in June", the D-Day invasion is told in flashback. Then Sgt. Hanley is addressed by a young lady with whom he was keeping company as "Gil" when the men are ordered back to their posts.
- Series was budgeted at $150,000.00 per episode.
