Poetic license, Dave. It happens all the time. For instance, in the song,"Reuben James" the writer said 'twas the last day of October" No, it was the 30th of October, and no where near 500 men went down. Destroyers never had that many crew members.
We don't look to Hollywood for the facts, we shouldn't look to songs for them either.
