A Green Beret like his father, Vincent “Falcon” Falcone spent his boyhood emulating his dad and becoming tough enough to complete the grueling Q-Course. Scaling mountain, parachuting from planes, rappelling down sheer cliffs, and crawling through dense jungle – it’s all a walk in the park for Falcon. leading a covert team at night in poor visibility conditions and under strict noise discipline seems impossible, but Falcon does it by establishing a solid rapport with his team and earning their respect.

Lt. Falcon is a second generation Green Beret and cross-trained in demolitions. He served with the 5th Special Forces Group Airborne “Blue Lightning” counter-terrorist unit as an “A” Team XO (executive officer). He’s also proficient in Spanish, French, Arabic and Swahili, and he’s a qualified expert with most NATO and Warsaw small arms. All of the details of Lt. Falcon’s military background make him a qualified leader on paper. But it is his dedication to his team and willingness to put his own life on the line for them that earn his fellow soldiers respect, and made him a natural choice for the G.I. Joe Team.
Over the years, Lt. Falcon has honed his skills from brash, impetuous fighter to cool, calculated tactician. He leads his troops with the same enthusiasm as always, but knows his years of knowledge are too valuable to waist on the battlefield – though he will not hesitate to head for the front lines if his team needs his personal support. His additional training in covert ops and cutting edge technology makes him the perfect leader of Night Force, a team specializing in night-time surveillance and defensive operations.
“Respect is not given…. it’s earned!”
