On several occasions, Captain Keyes refers to individual Marines as "Soldier." Navy personnel do not address each other or Marines as "Soldier." While anyone serving in the armed forces could be considered to be a soldier, only Army personnel would be addressed in this manner.

In the game, the UNSC are heavily based off the US military. So assuming this is true, Echo 419 is the incorrect way of identification for herself. She says "Pelican Echo Four-Ninetenn" when she should be saying Papa Echo Four One Niner. Same applies to the other Pelicans.

Captain Keyes appears to be wearing the rank insignia of a Navy Lieutenant (two silver bars). While the officer in charge of any Naval ship is the "Captain," it seems unlikely that someone with Keyes' age and experience would only have progressed to Lieutenant. A Navy officer who holds the rank of Captain would wear a silver eagle, not two silver bars. It seems that the developer confused the rank insignia of a Captain in the Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps with that of a Captain in the Navy.
