Filecard Information

File Name: Shannon, Carl G.
SN: 247-5540-ZY09
Grade: E-4
Birthplace: Blackduck, Minnesota
Primary Specialty: Flame Weapons Specialist
Secondary Specialty: Small Arms Armorer

As a childhood chore, CHARBROIL had to heat the water pipes in the family basement with a blowtorch to keep them from freezing and bursting in the winter. As a teenager, he worked in the mills on the Great Lakes, feeding coal into blast furnaces. When the Army recruiting sergeant asked him what type of job he was interested in, he replied, "What have you got with open flames?" Since then, he has become one of the premiere flame weapons specialists on the team.

From LT. FALCON's Files:
"CHARBROIL knows how fast his flamethrower weapon can ignite everything around him. Why do you think he wears a custom suit of flame resistant polymer fiber? He's the only one on the NIGHT FORCE squad who enjoys wearing a full tank of jellied gasoline on his back. It's great for defoliating jungles and persuading entrenched enemies to leave, but would you want to be standing next to him if a hot tracer round hits that? For a flamethrower specialist, he's a pretty nice guy, but with that thing on his back, he isn't going to win a popularity contest in the middle of a firefight."

Variations

Charbroil was available both boxed and bagged.
