"My first years in the Army were extremely valuable, because they served as the foundation upon which my G.I. Joe career would be built. Every G.I. Joe worth his weight in ammo received training at one of the U.S. military branches, although no training can replace field experience when it comes to raw combat. When the shells start exploding and the bullets start to fly, you'd better know how to react with split-second reflexes. As a G.I. Joe, you not only learn when to stand and fight, but when to take cover as well!"
Variations: The five-pack figure's accessories were black instead of brown.
