One character that effected Billy’s conflict was Ronald Weary. “Weary looked like Tweedledum or Tweedledee, all bundled up for battle. He was short and thick. He had every piece of equipment he had ever been issued…(50).” Ronald Weary was an eighteen years old and appeared to have psychological problems. He believed that well they were running from the Germans behind lines, that the other two men were part of the Three Musketeers. Nobody else saw them that way but rather Weary and Pilgrim were alone. Weary wanted to be a hero and was absorbed in the war which made him an antagonist to Billy. Billy didn’t like being in the war and was conflicted by his time travel taking back to the war. After Weary died, he was able to convince some army men to try and make Billy pay for supposedly killing Weary. This made it even more difficult whenever Billy traveled in time to wartimes. He is always confronted by some Americans that want to kill him.
