|Steam-Roller worked heavy cranes on the Great Lakes' docks, earth-movers in the strip mines of Appalachia, and graders on the four-lane blacktops of a half dozen states. He was driving an M-15A2, 50 ton transporter when he was picked up for the Joe Team. He may only be an E-5, but no matter who's ranked above him on his Mobile Command Center, Steam-Roller's gut instincts are the ones in charge. Qualified expert with all NATO small-arms and explosives.|
"He's a moose. He considers a Peterbilt 10 wheel tractor a personal vehicle and a .44 Magnum a pocket pistol. He gets barred from bowling alleys for damaging the pins. He's stubborn, ornery, mean-tempered, bad-humored, and uncouth. Has he got any good points? Well, he's on our side . . . "
