Orr: shares tent with Yossarian, practices crashing every mission- eventually crashes and escapes; good with his hands

Doc Daneeka: depressed, dies figuratively (dies on paper, so he is considered dead); doctor for the squadron; self-pitying hypochondriac; refuses to ground Yossarian because Doc is selfish
