    • Apocalypse Now
      The use of the composition "Ride of the Valkyries" by Col. Bill Rawls when the raids are made is a direct reference to the 1979 Vietnam war film Apocalypse Now, directed by Francis Ford Coppolla. Robert Duvall's character, who is also named Bill and a Colonel, blasts the song from air cavalry helicopters as they attack a Viet Cong village.
