** The Marines, Navy and Air Force have never had a draft. And even then, less than 1000 Marines were drafted in Vietnam or WorldWarTwo, something which amounted to a recruiter "[[GotVolunteered volunteering]]" Army draftees to meet quotas in both wars. So he enlisted, he wasn't drafted.

* The book the movie is based on is careful to describe Pyle as a very innocent soul. He also isn't out of shape, and is actually described as being skinny. He's just 'slow' and needs to be reminded to do everything. His breakdown is also clearly depicted as a psychotic break: he believed his rifle was talking to him and he shoots the drill sergeant because he looked at 'her' in a way he didn't like. This theory can still make sense within context of the movie though.
