Fighter Pilot

Code Name: ACE

File Name: Armbruster, Brad J.
SN: AF335986725
Primary Military Specialty: Fixed Wing Pilot, Single and Multiple Engine
Secondary Military Specialty: Intelligence Operations
Birthplace: Providence, RI

Ace would rather fly than do anything else. During high school he worked after school and weekends to pay for flying lessons. Spent one year flying pipelines in Alaska and two years stunt flying for movies. Enlisted USAF at age 22. Duty most previous to G.I.Joe assignment: senior instructor USAF Fighter Weapons Squadron "The Aggressors" (pilot combat training school). Qualified Expert: F-5E, F-15, F-16, XP-14/F.

Ace has one major character flaw; cutthroat poker. A predilection for gambling would ordinarily disqualify an applicant for the G.I.Joe team but in Armbruster's case you can hardly call it gambling since he NEVER LOSES. That's why we call him Ace!


My Personal Notes: Ace I got along with my SkyStriker from my cousin when I was a kid.  I loved them, and they were one of the best things I got handed over.  Unfortunately, he came to me without his helmet, and has been that way over the years.  I recently ( January 2012) found an Ace with helmet and a Cobra Commmander gun (also needed) cheap from eBay.  Picked it up, and the Ace I got is probably a little nicer than the one I already had.  My old Ace is now unfortunately relegated to hole filler....
