Joker is the squad leader during boot camp and is given the responsibility of training up Pyle so he doesn't bring down the squad. When Pyle continues to screw up he, along with the other recruits beat him in the middle of the night. His participation and allowing for the beating leads to Pyle killing Sgt. Hartman and taking his own life on the last night of boot camp. Joker goes on to Vietnam as a journalist, but uses his rifle far more than most writers do, and after encountering a young female sniper—who's killed his friends and has bullets all through her body—he chooses to kill her and take away her pain, fulfilling what he believes to be a responsibility to another human being, one that he didn't fulfill with Pyle.

Pyle is a recruit in Marine boot camp. He appears to be the weakest link in his squad as he continues to fail at the physical training and when Sgt. Hartman finds a jelly donut in his locker all the rest of the squad begins to be punished for his actions. Because he continues to screw up the other recruits beat him while he is sleeping which changes him. It wrecks his soul and the only thing he has left is his rifle which he uses to kill Hartman and take his own life.

Sgt. Hartman is in charge of the new recruits to the Marine boot camp and he's hard on them. He verbally abuses the men in order to beat the child out of them and molds them into soldiers by extreme physical training. He is especially hard on Pyle as he sees him as a screw up, but his way of helping him is repeatedly beating him down. Once he catches Pyle with a donut he punishes the rest of the squad which leads to them ostracizing Pyle and beating him. Pyle then flips a switch and when Hartman confronts him with the same aggression in the bathroom on the last night of boot camp, Pyle shoots and kills him in cold blood.

Rafterman is a journalist working for "Stars and Stripes" a newspaper covering the war for America. He's eager to get to the battlefield as he hasn't seen action yet. Joker wants him to hold back, but Rafterman requests to go on mission with Joker to the front lines which he is granted. Once their he kills for the first time and he begins to crave it. Instead of finding it hard to deal with he craves killing more people and we see he is very mixed up when he mows down a young female Vietnamese sniper and begins to jump and scream for joy as the other men look at the reality of the situation. The war has changed him.

Cowboy is one of Joker's friends from boot camp who goes on to lead a unit of men in Vietnam. Joker and Rafterman are assigned to Cowboy's unit in order to cover the war. When he and his men are pinned down by sniper fire he demands that they fall back, but no one listens to him and they overwhelm him and cause the unit to go after the gunman against his orders. He goes with them and is soon shot and killed by the sniper while trying to call for reinforcements.
