The reality of the war in Vietnam is about to test his training and his faith in the American dream.

He quickly forms a bond with Ragman, who isn't as hard on him as Junior or Hoss. He largely pretends to ignore Hoss' racism and Junior's complaining. Though when the two argue, he is often the one trying to break them apart.
