Arliss Howard is the Texan Private / Sergeant "Cowboy" Evans who goes through boot camp with Joker. He becomes a rifleman and later encounters Joker in Vietnam, taking command of a rifle squad. In The Short-Timers, Joker mercifully kills Cowboy after he is severely wounded by a sniper trying to draw the squad out. In Full Metal Jacket, he quickly dies of a sucking chest wound while in Joker's arms, surrounded by the few remaining members of his squad.
