He fought in Korea and Vietnam wars in fact. In 1983, Gunny is assigned a task: he has to transform a bunch of lazy guys into real soldiers. Despite the frequent contrasts, Gunny has to complete this task because during the war he has lost many buddies and he knows very well that soldiers must be ready to fight.
