Something That Describes Me
Corporal Marvin Hinton is a heavy weapons specialist, but his dream was to become a gourmet chef. Working as a bouncer to attend a prestigious cooking school in Mississippi, an Army recruiter convinced him that they could train him to be a chef. Finding the army "menus" appalling, he transferred to infantry.
"A 50 cal Browning weighs 84 lbs. Add 50 lbs for the ammo, and that's about 134 pounds generating 2930 fps muzzle velocity at a cyclic rate of 550 rpm. Anybody who can handle that doesn't need a machine gun to keep me away."
Roadblock would be fantastic at handling the M-60, M-249, or 30 cal laser tag machine guns, whether on the attack or using suppression fire to pin your enemies. www.facebook.com/conflictcolorado
Sergeant Ettienee LaFitte is a recon specialist and a Jungle Warfare Training Instructor. Born in the swamps of Louisiana, he moved to New Orleans and won a reputation as a bare knuckle brawler. Joining the Marines at 18, he graduated top of class from boot camp at Parris Island.
"All Marines are crazy, but Gung-Ho is the hairiest, scariest, craziest, jarhead that ever scratched, kicked, and bit his way our of that hole-in-the-swamp they call Parris Island.
Corporal Lance Steinberg was born in Jersey, and became a mechanic and Manny's Mean Machines. He was heavily involved in street racing, and one of the best drivers you have ever seen.
"He greases his hair with motor oil, rarely shaves, and chews on the same toothpick for months. Clutch still calls women "chicks."
Sergeant Harlan Moore is from Vermont and became an Olympic Biatholon contender. Originally he enlisted for the support that the Army gives to Olympic champions. Due to his outstanding marksmanship, he was inducted onto the GI Joe team with an expertise in all long range sniper rifles.
"You thin we call him Snow Job because he does his job on skis? Negative. He's a con artist, pure and simple, except when he picks up his rifle - sure as heck, something's gonna fall down."
Born in Wisconsin, Corporal Daniel LeClaire, Codename: Recondo, hates the cold. He is at home busting through the bush while sweating through his cammies. "The jungle is like a some single, gigantic, hostile organism," he says. "It can sense when you fear it or hate it, and it is wholly without mercy."
Corporal Albert Pine is from Idaho on the Snake River Plain. His home was surrounded by mountains on all sides, creating a physical barrier between him and what he wanted. He took up mountain climbing in college and continues climbing recreationally while we worked as a accountant for a large publishing firm. The Joe's gave Alpine the most hazardous of all conditions - With COBRA shooting at him!
"Every time Alpine scales a sheer cliff piton by piton, overcoming granite and gravity with muscle and persistence, he is symbolically climbing out of the quagmire of his past.That's why we send him up first on vertical assaults. He doesn't take to to being knocked down too easily."
Alpine would love Conflict Colorado, as many games are played in the mountains. His rifle and sub-machine gun expertise would mean that any weapon would be perfect for him to stage his attacks. www.facebook.com/conflictcolorado
Almost all of Snake Eyes history is classified. He is a master at all Nato and Warsaw pact small arms and an expert martial artist, having proficiency in no less than 12 different unarmed fighting systems. He is also highly skilled in edged weapons. He has received extensive training in mountaineering, underwater demolitions, jungle, desert, and arctic survival.
"The man is a total mystery, but he's real good at his job, heck, he's the best."
Corporal Ron Tadur is from Las Vegas where hs was a refrigerator repairman and studying desert ecology before joining the Joes. He loves the desert. To him it is clean, pure, and unforgiving, unlike Las Vegas which is always willing to give you a second chance.
"It's not enough nowadays to have a rapid reaction force responsive instantaneously to explosive situations in far flung corners of hostile environments to accomplish it objectives. If that means having one expert for every type of environment on every team to take on survival responsibilities on that terrain, so be it."
