Within the game's font are characters (assigned to the bytes 0x73-0x85) representing each of the major buttons on a Game Boy Advance. The L and R icons, however, are never actually seen. In-game tutorials which call out button inputs simply do so in standard text highlighted in yellow.

GAX ENGINE V3.03A Mar 5 2003 EXCEPTION. PROGRAM HALT. FUNCTION NAME:
Presumably the original European subtitle, Back to Hell, was considered too violent and/or to have upsetting religious overtones, so the North American release of the game was renamed Back in the Trenches. This only affects places the logo is seen; in game, a villain even tells the player they're "going to burn in hell!"
The third entry in the series, subtitled BioTerror, was also announced for US release with the subtitle Navy Ops, but this version was ultimately cancelled.
