These commercials fueled a young boy’s dreams… my dreams. My era of G.I. JOE was all about adventure. War was something that everybody wished to forget. This my explain a bit of the “extreme” sports that my generation got into as we grew older.

I LOVED the Adventure Team when I was a kid. I had only one Joe (still have him… he’s had some rough play over the years) and various outfits. I remember playing with the neighbor who had several Joes, the copter, the Secret of the Mummy’s Tomb set, and others.
