3 3/4 Club Exclusive FSS 8.0 Drop 2, Infantry Officer Captain Grid-Iron (1 pc)
Captain Grid-Iron was quarterback of the West Point football team and graduated in the top ten of his class. It can be said in his favor that he passed up an appointment to the U.S. Army War College for a conventional infantry command at the company level. It was this determination to be "where the action is" that brought him to the attention of the G.I. Joe team. He quickly impressed General Hawk with his battlefield strategies and unconventional use of weaponry, such as a football grenade.
Although some of his teammates were a bit put off by this West Pointer when he first showed up, he turned out to be bearable to the point that nobody tried to "lose" him on his first mission. In fact, if he would only stop trying so hard to be a likable officer and put a halt to his John Wayne (classic Hollywood tough guy) imitation, they might let him play quarterback at the annual Fish Fry Football Game.
