Strong language includes uses of 'f**k', 'motherf**ker' and 'c**ksucking', alongside milder terms such as 'whore', 'bitch', 'damn', 'ass', 'shit', 'balls', 'dick', 'pussy' and 'bullshit'. There is also a use of the rude middle finger gesture.

Sex

There is occasional use of discriminatory terms including 'gook' and 'raghead' as veterans discuss their experiences during the Vietnam and Iraq wars. One character also uses the discriminatory term 'retard'.

Infrequent drug references include discussions about the recreational use of morphine during wartime.
