When the GI JOE Team is on a mission, it is crucial that they keep in contact with each other and with their base operations. Vital information, delivered and transmitted clearly and quickly, can make the difference between a success mission against COBRA, and one that ends badly. Communications specialists are there to operate and repair every piece of equipment that gathers, transmits and relays information, including radios, computers and more. Communication specialist recruits study the "guts" of these machines to know how they work, learn their optimal uses in various situations, and develop their skills to patch them up and rig them for unconventional scenarios that require unique solutions.
