Motto: "May the wings of freedom, never lose a feather."
In his childhood, Hawk always looked to the sky. He was fascinated by the man-made objects streaking over his head with such speed and power. He joined the military and graduated from Officers Candidate School at West Point. Served on cadre with the North Atlantic Command and USA ENG COM EVR missile and Radar training station. He held the position of Missile Commander until he received his General's start and was offered command over G.I. JOE operations. His list of credits are as long as his arm, most of his experience comes from where it counts - on the battlefield. General HAWK is the type of commander who goes out and gets shot at like everyone else. Troops respect that. They know he won't ask them to do anything he isn't willing to do himself. When the government closed down the G.I. JOE program, he was forced to work behind a desk. Using this as a forum, all his efforts wen to prove terrorist organizations, such as COBRA, were still a threat and required a special unit to combat them. It didn't take long for the results to be shown, as enemy forces were once again on the rise. The call to arms and return of the G.I. JOE Team was all General Hawk needed. You can find him standing on top of the MAULER Battle Tank as it rolls into battle. His confidence stems from his knowledge and the abilities of the team he leads.
FILE EXCERPT from the JOINT-CHIEFS-OF-STAFF: "General Hawk is keenly intelligent and perceptive, quite capable of selfless acts in support of his team. An excellent leader!"
