Shipwreck has earned a reputation as being one of the more rambunctious members of the G.I. Joe Team. It's not that he is in any way disobedient or disrespectful of higher up officers. His arrogant, brash personality and stereotypical sailor attitude has gotten him in trouble so many times. He prefers to take up his own actions and fight the enemy in his own way. He also has a reputation for telling tall tales and for his poor culinary skills. It seems he is the only one who can stomach his own cooking. His superiors have had enough and shipped him to Navy S.E.A.L. School in the hopes the training there would make him a better man. It made him better alright... a better fighter only.
Shipwreck grew up just by the side of the sprawling San Diego Navy Yards. He enlisted at the youngest possible age with his parents' permission and then served with distinction in the Mekong Delta where he contended with river pirates, smugglers and insurgents. He also spent time at several naval bases and on carrier-initiated operations in the Middle East.
Combat Heroes Edit
Shipwreck has not currently appeared in the Combat Heroes line, but he was expected to appear once:
- He was supposed to appear in his classic sailor costume with his parrot in the Shipwreck and Crimson Guard 2-Pack, but it was never released in the US, it was only available in Canada
