Lieutenant Carmen Ibanez is a pilot in the SICON fleet.
Johnny Rico joined the military just because Carmen said that she wanted to be a pilot and he blindly attempted to follow her. Carmen was smart, calm, and rarely let her emotions get in the way of her tasks. Whenever a dropship she's piloting was crash-landed due to whatever circumstances, she often helped the Roughnecks carry out their missions. While reminiscing about the past, Carmen admitted that she had a big crush on Rico during the sixth grade, but she didn't tell him. It wasn't clear if she felt the same way about Rico after Dizzy told Carmen that she's the reason Rico enlisted.
