comment
Major Benson Winifred Payne (Damon Wayans) is being discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps. Payne is a killin' machine, but the wars of the world are no longer fought on the battlefield. A career Marine, he struggles with civilian life, which results in an assault charge.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })However, his commander finds him a job that gets him back into the military: Commanding officer of Madison Preparatory Academy's JROTC program, consisting a bunch of ragtag losers and misfits with no hope.Using such teaching tools as live grenades and real bullets, Payne starts to instill the Corps with some hope. But when Payne is recalled to fight in Bosnia, will he leave the recruits who have just started to believe in him, or will he find out that killin' ain't much of a livin'?

comment
Badass Biker: The kids hire one to intimidate Payne. He's tall, beefy, leather-clad, and bald, and since he's played by wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow, said bald dome comes complete with a tattooed flame covering it.

comment
Abusive Parents: Alex's step-dad punches him for perceived slights and treats him like property. He makes Payne look like a Reasonable Authority Figure. This becomes explicit when Payne makes him back off.

comment
The Ace: Stone is the closest to this among the cadets. Despite appearing Brilliant, but Lazy in his first scene, he's the most talented of any of them at just about everything, and a natural leader. Payne recognizes this, which is why he promotes Stone to squad leader after his most recent plan to get rid of him failed and he owned up to it.
