It might seem paradoxical to have a general infantry trooper in a special missions force, but Grunt is no ordinary soldier. Even in an army of thousands, General Hawk took notice and saw in Grunt the consummate soldier. Grunt was always the backbone of every unit to which he was assigned and exceeded expectations in countless operations. This type of outstanding service record led to Grunt being chosen as one of the original members during the formation of the G.I. Joe team. On Duke’s advisement, he left the service to pursue a degree in electrical engineering, and tried his hand at life in the mundane business world. However, when it became clear the evil menace was stronger than ever, he reenlisted to get back to fighting Cobra.
Grunt believes that constant training and education are the keys to staying one step ahead of the enemy, and he constantly qualifies with the latest infantry weapons and equipment. To that end, on rare occasions he will strap on a personal winged glider backpack for silent attacks into enemy territory, though he prefers to keep boots in the mud.
“You have to lead your troops by setting the example right on the battlefield, not by barking out orders from behind them!”
