The character "Hoot," like several other's in the film was based on a compilation of real-life soldiers.

Grimes character doesnt show up in either of the print items either...
"Grimes" didn't exist, he was a made up character - but he was portraying John Stebbins.

Ranger Capt Steele:
Sarn (no one EVER prononced Sergeant in this movie!) what is this? Another tax-payer funded Delta Safari?
Delta Hoot:
Just some aerial target practice sir. Didnt want it to go to waste.
im talking about your piece. Now Delta or no Delta that's still a hot weapon. You know on base you should always have your safety on.

Airborne coordinators to McKnight:
What's the matter Danny something you dont like?

To you, circling around at 500 feet wars imperfect, but down on the ground, it's unforgiving...

Man that movie was so great. Great sayings in the movie too. Inspirational. Makes you admire those guys who went out on that day.

Oh yeah btw I've watched the movie tons of times but i never got who that guy was that was calling his wife at home but she just couldn't pick up in time.

Anyone here who still can remember the conversation between Osmann Otto and General Garrison after the former offered the latter a Cuban cigars. I missed out on that part... At that moment, he was questioning why the US forces was present at Somalia... Any kind souls out there who will help me post the quotes here???

The quotes that I want happened slightly before the below-mentioned quotes...
You shouldn't have come here. This is a civil war. This is our war, not yours.
-Osmann Otto
General Garrison: 300,000 dead and counting. That's not a war Mr. Atto. That's genocide.
-General Garrison
Thanks For Your Attention To The Above....

*Mr. Atto offers Gen Garrison a cigar*
Gen. Garrison - No thanks, i got one..
Atto - But these are cuban
Gen. Garrison- *chuckles* So's this.
Atto - Heh heh heh... Miami my friend is not cuban.

This scene always ammused me. I love his accent too.
