From the middle of the flat dusty Snake River Plain where Alpine was born he could see the mounains on the horizon in almost every direction like a physical barrier between him and the world he wanted. He took up mountain climibing during college and continued as a recreational clmiber during his brief tenure as an accountant for a large publishing firm. The G.I Joe team gave Alpine the most hazardous of all conditions: With Cobra shooting at him!
Graduated Ranger School, Fort Benning. Qualified Expert: M-16; M-14; M-60; M-1911A1.
"Every time Alpine scales a sheer cliff face piton by piton, overcoming granite and gravity with muscle and persistance, he is symbolically climbing out of the quagmire of his past. That's why we send him first on vertical assaults. He doesn't take to being knocked down too easily." *Source: Filecard on package.
