Yes, the six boy in the novel represent America and its people. The author presents biographies early on the novel, and in essence brings them back to life. These boys were representative of of soldiers, they each had their own stories, and yet, because of a picture they will forever be linked together as a unit. American soldiers represented every social class and every area of the United States; out military is a blend of everything American, and it seves a common cause.
