Birthplace: St. Louis, MO
Primary Specialty: Airborne Infantryman
Secondary Specialty: Artillery
Although not one of the original Joes, Duke quickly rose to the task of being the G.I. Joe team's first sergeant and field commander. Duke is, at his core, a man of action and a highly educated and experienced soldier. He speaks five languages, graduated top of his class at airborne school at Fort Benning, and joined the Special Forces not long after. He served overseas in several areas of Southeast Asia. Duke commands by winning respect and by understanding his team as well as making sure they follow procedure. He's tough as nails, but not so unyielding that he is unable to work with the unusual diversity of a group such as the G.I. Joe team. Duke has turned down several commissions over the years so he could stay in the field. He has absolutely no interest in an officer's rank or a desk job. He wants to be out there with his troops kicking Cobra around wherever they appear.
From General Hawk's File: "One of the best additions this outfit has ever had is Duke. The man is the perfect field commander, adaptive to any situation while maintaining control. I can't think of a better soldier to have in the field, watching over the troops and getting the job done. If the Joes are the 'best of the best', then Duke is one of them."
No variations of Duke (v7) are known to exist.
Note that the figure's head only turns left and right - it does not allow the head to look up and down.
