How this stereotype arose is uncertain, but it is not merely trope but a {{cliche}}. {{Truth in Television}} in the sense that it is a RealLife stereotype, stemming from the fact that there are many military bases in the South, as well as the abundance of Southerners in the military and their penchant for firearms and anything military-related. Compared to fiction, however, it isn't as prevalent due to the fact that doing such behavior could get his squad captured or even killed or even worse, get him court-martialed for his antics.

* Denver 'Bull' Randleman from ''BandOfBrothers'', to a certain degree. The other [=NCOs=] tease him for his "folksy wisdom," but when the replacements laugh along, they make it explicitly clear that he is one of the most intelligent men in the company. ** TruthInTelevision

Added DiffLines:
* ''Literature/CassandraKresnov: Breakaway'' has Captain Reichardt of the Federation starship ''Mekong'', a fellow with a written-out Texas drawl who gives the protagonist some much-needed help at the climax of the book.

Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Webcomics]] * At least one ''Webcomic/TerminalLance'' strip on [[NewMeat boots (i.e. fresh Marine recruits)]] complains about how there's ''always'' that one guy with a ten-gallon hat and a Texas drawl. [[/folder]]

* Corporal Dunn of ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: ModernWarfare 2'' has a southern accent, and is a bit less serious about the Rangers' situation than [[SergeantRock Foley]], at least when not under fire. He also has something of a sarcastic streak and displays some disdain towards General Shephard and his "prima donna unit".

Even if this character is written as an officer, it is important to remember that this is a class-specific trope. A military officer with southern accent, a good education and a genteel matter is not usually a SouthernFriedPrivate, but an attempt by the writer to provide some variety among a group of characters who might otherwise speak and dress pretty much the same. Good examples of this type would be [[TheMcCoy "Bones" McCoy]] ([=DeForest=] Kelley) on ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Surgeon Wilkins (Chill Wills) in the JohnWayne cavalry classic ''Rio Grande'', and Chief Engineer "Trip" Tucker on ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''.
