Lt. Falcon is a second-generation Green Beret, his father having served with the 10th SFGA (Special Forces Group Airborne) from its very beginnings at Fort Bragg's Smoke Bomb Hill. Falcon was cross-trained in demolitions and served briefly with the 5th SFGA "Blue Light" counter-terrorist unit as an "A" Team XO*. He is proficient in Spanish, French, Arabic and Swahili and a qualified expert with NATO and Warsaw Pact small-arms.

"Green Berets are specialists in training and leading native insurgents. Native insurgents are usually primitive tribal peoples who respond to two types of leadership: You can bully and overwhelm them with superior firepower and technology...Or you can bite the head off a snake, chug-a-lug the local beverage and yell, 'Follow me!' Falcon is a snake-biter if I ever saw one."

*Executive Officer


Falcon has been found with thick or thin camouflage. Neither version is harder to find than the other.

The 1992 G.I.Joe Convention release came with a black rifle and black flare gun.
