Okay, I have 5 greenshirts from Firefly vs. Greenshirts pack. My extra from trade, I put Hawk's head (comic version) on the body. I see these guys as my Recuit squad.
So Option A) realistic names since they have not made final joe team cut.
RECUIT: SPC. JOHNSON
RECUIT: CPL. MICHEALS
RECUIT: CPL. JONES
RECUIT: SGT. STONE
RECUIT: SGT. DAWKINS

Option B) Nick names/Code names
TEX/Ranch hand
SHOOTER/Snipes
RED/Merk
MAD DOG/Outrage
NIGHT OWL/Nightwatch

Option C) Names that Beachhead would most likely to be yelling at the recuits on the training field..
PVT. Pyle
Dirtbag
Grease head
Slacker
Maggot

You could always borrow names from marvel issue 82 where Gi Joe was auditioning New recruits.

but i like option C the best. Some one needs to put those rawhides in their place

Yeah, this.


You ever read the DDP America's Elite Special Missions issue where Beachhead leads a group of greenshirt recruits? It's told from the point of view of one of the greenshirts. He's thinking that they'll get some cool codenames during training, like he's heard some other squads do. But no, not Beachhead.

He calls them: one, two, three, four and five.

Option C is usually how nicknames or "code" names get established. Through that or by doing something extremely good/ or stupid/ or bad. Sometimes a combination.

Write some back stories and see where it takes you.

LOL! I read that! Beachhead really knew how to dampen their self-esteem! No wonder Blackout went with COBRA.

By the end of the issue, they had a grudging respect for Beach Head.

And it was actually a G.I.Joe: Frontline issue.


Black Out had Mirage as his trainer.

Go with all three. A) Real Names, then C) Beachhead's pet names until they earn B) their code names.

You had it. You didn't need our help! :)

I can only think of one name..."too much time on hands". It probably won't work though it's too long of a name. TMTOH. that's much better!
