Dusty loves the desert. It is clean, pure, and unforgiving. Unlike Vegas which is always willing to give you a second chance, Dusty was working as a refrigerator repairman and studying desert ecology at night when his pre-enlistment application for the G. I. Joe Team was approved. He took Basic at Fort Bliss, TX and loved every minute of it.

"It's not enough nowadays to have a rapid-reaction force responsive instantaneously to explosive situations in far flung corners of the globe. That force must be capable of surviving in a diverse array of hostile environments to accomplish its objectives. If that means having one expert for every type of environment on every team to take on survival responsibilities on that terrain, then so be it."
