"We don't know the meaning of the word 'quit' and we never will. If you want to be one of us, then burn this word into your brain: victory."

G.I. JOE infantry troopers are a top-notch part of the G.I. JOE team. Dubbed "Greenshirts" by G.I. JOE veterans, they're the backbone of any mission, slamming COBRA forces with solid muscle and overwhelming firepower. To be part of this infantry force, each trooper studies how COBRA fights so he can anticipate and counteract the enemy's moves. Providing essential ground and air support, G.I. JOE troopers help ensure a mission's success with their superior skill and ferocious determination to win.

OOC Notes

Greenshirts counter Cobra Troopers the same way Steel Brigade are counterparts to Cobra's Vipers. While most Greenshirts are Army Rangers, there are representatives from every branch of the military, as well as personnel from the CIA, DEA, FBI, Homeland Security, and other American organizations with an interest in counter-terrorism and national security.

One jeep was lost to the Decepticons' initial attack, and Greenshirts 34 'Waffles', 62 'Smooth Talk' and 145 'Rocksteady' all suffered minor to moderate injuries from the blast, while 910 was allegedly pinned down and interrogated-slash-injured by the Decepticon before backup could arrive from the nearby military base.

Aug 17 - Missing Evac Team

A large scale battle ensued, involving Autobots and Decepticons against the Quintesson combiner called 'Piranacon' Most of the convoy returned, but several soldiers, among them Cpl Matthew Kane 'Rhino', are MIA. Army Doctor Michel Miller is also reported MIA.

9/3 - "Sewer Demolition"

The people of Earth have had enough of the Quintessons. The Bellum, warship of the Quintesson fleet, still dominates the ruined terrain of Los Angeles. The combined forces of Earth's defenders have concocted a daring plan to end the invasion once and for all. To prepare, a demolitions team has been sent in to weaken the foundation around the Spiral's anchor points.
