Bio: Well-versed in anti-armor weapons, Salvo doesn't trust high-tech, electronics-assisted weapons systems, believing their complexity just leads to an unreliable weapon. He prefers using large amounts of conventional firepower to overwhelm an enemy. After years in the Army, Salvo joined the G.I. Joe team.
On his first mission, he fought in the Battle of Benzheen, the Joes largest operation to date. He served on several other missions, including the defense of the Pit in Utah from a Cobra assault, before the Joe team was shut down in 1994.
Some time after the team was later reinstated, Salvo took part in the Joes' battle against a revived Serpentor on Cobra Island.
