Joshua Crimmins was probably the funniest member of the platoon.
He was always acting up and apparently required a lot of attention. He told everyone that he had attended a thespian academy in New York City and that could have very well been the truth. He was very good at facial expressions and voice changes.
The more I think of it the more it appears to be the case, for Joshua also had a flare for style. He liked his fancy hats and vests. He was definitely a diversion from the worries of armed conflict.
I believe that is why Lieutenant MacAdam allowed Joshua to wear his strange cloths – – – in the afterlife.
