In the beginning of the novel, Wilson is appropriately dubbed the "loud soldier." Having no lack of self-esteem, the others are put off by his arrogance and opinionated conversation. He's seen as argumentative and bragadocious. None-the-less, as the novel progresses, all of this changes, as does our opinion of Wilson as a man. He's loyal to Henry and his other fellow soldiers and learns to work as a team, rather than like an individual. He is protective of his comrades and learns humility.
