The Major is anything but "really nice." The boys in the Long Walk, as well as the citizens of this future, dystopian America, essentially worship the Major. The second to last time we see the Major, there are only a few dozen walkers left and yet, despite their anger toward the Major (i.e. many blame him for their impending deaths), many of the walkers still cheer when he arrives on his Jeep.
