This is a list of unnamed military personnel with spoken lines and/or credited actors seen on 24.
Day 1 Edit
Coast Guard officer Edit
As part of her undercover deception, Nina Myers falsely informed Jack Bauer that his daughter Kim had been found dead in the water, prompting him to vengefully wipe out the Drazens and their men. Afterwards, outside the dock, Jack approached a member of the Coast Guard and asked him if he could claim Kim's body, but that officer was confused and called the harbormaster. He was informed that neither the Coast Guard nor the harbormaster found a body that night.
Day 2 Edit
Officer in Oregon Edit
An officer at the Northwest Regional Operations Complex briefed President David Palmer and his assembled officials about likely terrorist targets. His presentation focused on the effects of a detonation within the Port of Los Angeles. Lynne Kresge interrupted Palmer during the officer's briefing to inform him that NSA Director Roger Stanton had arrived.
Coral Snake leader Edit
A Coral Snake unit, led by this commando, arrived at the crash site of the plane with the instructions of killing any survivor to prevent the intelligence agencies from knowing Roger Stanton's involvement in the conspiracy. The leader found one survivor – Rick Phillips – and executed him, but was alerted when another survivor shot one of his soldiers and a gunfight ensued. The leader and all members of his unit were later wiped out by Jack and the CTU search and rescue team.
- The Coral Snake leader appeared in "4:00pm-5:00pm."
Officer in DC Edit
An officer in Washington, D.C. told President James Prescott that the military actions planned against the Middle East still had the element of surprise. Many targets were unguarded, according to his satellite photos which were only ten minutes old.
Day 3 Edit
Delta team medic Edit
A Delta Force team led by Captain Reiss was sent into Mexico near Las Nieves to capture the dangerous Cordilla virus. Among them was a soldier who tended to the gunshot wound in the hand of Chase Edmunds, who had been tortured by Hector Salazar and his men Eduardo and Emilio. Chase abruptly left the medic before being fully treated to speak with Reiss.
Delta team pilot Edit
A transport plane from Delta Force's Aviation Squadron was sent to Mexico by Captain Mike Murphy to pick up Jack Bauer, Chase Edmunds, some Delta operators, and prisoner Nina Myers. As they flew to Los Angeles, Tony Almeida called the plane's pilot directly and ordered him to return to Mexico according to Nina's demands, since her computer worm was causing havoc inside CTU's computers. Jack threatened the pilot with a weapon, and told him to ignore Tony. They spoke briefly until Chloe O'Brian neutralized the computer worm, and Jack left the pilot to fly to LA, telling him to report the threat if he wished.
Day 5 Edit
Marine Commander Edit
After Jack had Scott Evans successfully land Flight 520, he was picked up by Curtis Manning and few other CTU agents. They reached a roadblock due to the martial law, and the commanding Marine told the agents in the car to put their hands up. Curtis told him they were federal agents who were also looking for Bauer and couldn't waste any time. The Marine reluctantly let them through and did not realize that Jack was in the car.
Russian officer Edit
The ranking Russian officer aboard the submarine Natalia was notified by Lt. Southern that terrorists had targeted the sub for its weapons. He scrambled to give orders to his subordinates. As the ship was being locked down, Southern opened a hatch but was shot; Vladimir Bierko and his last group of Dawn Brigade separatists gassed the sub with Sentox. Except for Petty Officer Tim Rooney, who was unharmed, the gas wiped out both American and Russian crews.
After Jack Bauer subdued the last of the Dawn Brigade terrorists on board the Natalia, a Naval squadron confronted him and the Lieutenant ordered Jack to drop his weapon. After Jack had identified himself, the lieutenant told him to get in contact with Bill Buchanan, and ordered one of the petty officers to get Jack a car.
Day 6 Edit

Escort guard Edit
At the Anacostia Detention Facility, a soldier named Tuers struck Walid Al-Rezani at 8:37am, and then told a nearby escort guard to prepare Walid for interrogation. The guard later took Walid to an outdoor area and gave Walid's name to another soldier there. Salim, another detainee, overheard Walid's name spoken by the escort guard and, in appreciation for Walid's earlier show of support for him, befriended him at about 9:28am.
On the orders of President Wayne Palmer, the Army National Guard loaded a large number of terrorist detainees onto a plane. The President canceled the flight however, as CTU Los Angeles had determined one of the prisoners, Hasan Numair, would be a valuable terrorist asset. A Guardsman received a picture of Numair, and he boarded the plane to find him, but was unsuccessful.
Then, shortly after 9am, the Guardsman reported to Bill Buchanan from CTU that Numair had escaped with inside help sometime after the buses got onto the highway. When asked if any personnel was missing, the Guardsman said that a sergeant was unaccounted for. This sergeant had indeed permitted Numair to escape, and the Guardsman's report infuriated Buchanan.
Lt. Colonel Edit
President Wayne Palmer, in a meeting with the Cabinet and the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the White House bunker, addressed a Lt. Colonel through a live video feed concerning possible state sponsors of the terrorist Abu Fayed. The Colonel noted a CIA list of likely states, and said that after contacting the ambassadors of those states, they expressed condolences over the nuclear strike in Valencia and of course denied any connection to Fayed.
Marine sergeant Edit
A Marine sergeant was posted with another serviceman to guard the two suitcase nukes that Jack Bauer had recovered from the terrorist Abu Fayed. Bauer, who sought to steal one FB subcircuit board from one of the nukes, tried to convince the guard that the building had been compromised, and that he had direct orders from the President to retrieve the hardware. The sergeant argued with Jack briefly, but Jack asserted himself, shouting that the sergeant was being insubordinate, and threatened to call the Marine's superiors. The sergeant relented and hurriedly ordered the other guard to open the gate, and they stood watch while Jack took the component. When Mike Doyle and others entered, there was a brief standoff. Doyle revealed that Jack was a rogue agent, so the Marine turned and knocked out Bauer with the butt of his rifle.
Rebel child abductor Edit
A group of rebels in Sangala captured five young boys (among them a boy named Kabila) to be brainwashed as "little soldiers". The leader of the group was called by his superior, Iké Dubaku, who was disappointed to hear that only five were taken. The soldier kept the boys under armed guard until their truck arrived at the rebel camp.
- The rebel child abductor was played by an uncredited actor.
Dubaku's soldier Edit
A soldier that accompanied Youssou Dubaku to the Okavango School managed to knock out Jack Bauer and take him hostage. He was about to shoot Bauer but Dubaku stopped him, explaining that they would torture him to find out where the children were. The soldier and another rebel searched the buildings and reported back to Dubaku, who told them to keep looking. Jack then said that they were hidden elsewhere, and after being tortured told them that they were hidden in a hatch beyond the treeline. Dubaku ordered his soldier and two others to get them, but Carl Benton was waiting for them and shot all three dead.
- Dubaku's soldier was played by Thembaletu Tyutu.
Rebel commander Edit
Colonel Dubaku of the rebel militia in Sangala coordinated with one of his commanders regarding the movements of sixteen mortar teams and twenty forward observers.

- The rebel militant at the camp was played by an uncredited actor.
Rebel soldier by bus Edit
A militant in the rebel militia in Sangala informed Colonel Dubaku that they found the bus from the Okavango School, but it had been abandoned. Dubaku spoke with the militant over the radio because he wanted the former occupants of that bus captured, as two of them — Jack Bauer and Carl Benton — had killed his brother, Youssou. The militant told him that the river was the likely route of their targets, so Dubaku left in a chopper to find them.
- The rebel militant by the bus was played by an uncredited actor.
Rebel sergeant Edit
At 4:44pm, a rebel sergeant who was following Colonel Dubaku advised him to stop pursuing the two men (Jack Bauer and Carl Benton) who killed his brother. Dubaku was furious, and since he demanded revenge, he ignored the sergeant's advice and grabbed him. The sergeant again tried to end the search by saying that the city wasn't safe, as the government still controlled it, but additionally, one of their supporters named Udo could capture the targets for them. Dubaku again ignored him. When they found Benton, the sergeant was blown away when Benton triggered a land mine.
- The rebel sergeant was played by Didier Moestus.
Embassy marine sergeant Edit
A Marine sergeant at the United States embassy in Sangala saw Jack Bauer in the crowd of people begging to be granted entry. Jack told the sergeant to find Frank Trammell, the chief political officer, and the sergeant did so.
