    As far as seeing the people playing Marines and how they act, dead on. Have never seen a realistic portrayal of the Marine enlisted/officer issues and what can happen with good/bad leadership. As far as how realistic the events are and some of the characters only the people that were there know.

    An interesting fact, the "actor" that plays Sgt. Rudy Reyes (Fruity Rudy) is actually Rudy Reyes, the real life Recon Marine, so that could tell you something about the accuracy.

    The week before the first episode aired, they did a "making of" and it explained that 3-4 maybe more of the actual people are playing the role of themselves for it.

    Negative, I believe only Rudy is playing himself. They brought in two other guys, but they're there as consultants.
