Well this wraps up a month of G.I. Joe drawings (and gives me a whole bunch of cards to sell if I get a table at Fallcon!). The plan was to swing into September and continue the trend by doing a character from the X-Men each day… Not sure if I will be doing that for sure or not. Feeling a little wore down today and thinking I might take a day or two off. Guess you will have to tune in tomorrow to find out for sure!
Day 31 is Bazooka
Bazooka is my all time favorite Joe. After all he is a hometown boy from the Iron Range of MN.
On a little side note, While he himself does not show up in the live action GI Joe movies, his Shirt does in the background of one of the scenes…
File Name: Katzenbogen, David L.
Birthplace: Hibbing, Minnesota
Primary Specialty: Armor Defeating Weapons Systems
Secondary Specialty: Tank Driver
Bazooka was driving an Abrams tank in the “Third Horde” (Third Armored Div.) when he came to the realization that an illiterate farmer armed with a $200 disposable rocket launcher could knock out a million dollar tank with less than two weeks training. He put in for a transfer immediately.
Training: Advanced Infantry School. Fort Benning: Armor School, Fort Knox. Qualified expert: Dragon Anti-Tank Missle, Milan System, LAW rocket, Recoilless rifle, LAW System and all Warsaw Pact RPG systems. Subject is also EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) qualified up to the tac-op category.
Subject is a decisive fast-thinker with all the instincts of a natural survivor.
