Arnie didn't arrange the chopper though. Phillips did, and he's clearly legit army.

Add in the CIA involvement and it doesn't seem that far fetched for the US Army to be using their kit to ferry mercenaries around.

You have to communicate with each other.  I can't be Army and call a Marine help to come get me.  For Dutch to have the freqs there had to be some sort of communication before hand.  Lots of Army units done even talk to one another even.

Well it's not like they went in without an extraction plan. The mission was always to be extracted by chopper, so of course they'd have the necessary info to contact said choppers and/or whichever base they're operating from.

Something that you don't typically give to mercs.  But maybe dutchess unit was the blackwater/xe/whateverthehelltheygobythesedays of the eighties.

What was it that Dutch asked Dillon that Dillon  replied to: 'no such thing old buddy'? something about backup?

or maybe i am just remembering wrong. then Dutch said something to the tune of: "this gets better by the minute"

they were still on the chopper.

Dutch asks Dillon what their backup is should anything go wrong once their over the border. Dillon says they have none.

In the chopper, Dillon shows his lighter and stated that Dutch also has one. It has the screaming eagle logo on it from the U.S. Army Airborne. He mentioned the city of Hue, which had the 2nd Brigade of the 101st Airborne operating in that battle. Obviously, that is Dutch and Dillon's previous unit but would be interesting to know what typical assignments ex-U.S. Army personnel accepted in the 80s.
