*Absolutely love all the Sierra Gordo stuff! Great chase through the jungle featuring the good old Desert Fox, one of my all time favorite vehicles - so cool when Flint takes it for the jump across the ravine! Also Larry creates some great tension with Flint not wanting to go back for the Oktober Guard when their vehicle was taken out. Meeting up with the Tucaros is also very cool!
*Millville revolution - very fun, seeing the Joes having to get creative to fight back against Cobra - luring the BUGG into the trap with the safe in the alley - ouch!
*Scarlett getting the life support pulled - another great cliffhanger!
#102 is a really good read - a step up from #101, I think.

"Duke is the First Shirt, Flint is X.O. and Lt. Falcon is S-2 and S-3 and S-4 slots rotate. The Joes aren't set up as a normal unit or they wouldn't rate a 2-star C.O. instead of a company-grade honcho. Although they function as a microcosm of a Division, in that they have their own integral support groups, air transport, engineers, signalmen and artillery, the Joes are actually a resource pool for specific missions. A temporary chain of command for each individual mission might be more appropriate!" -Larry
I've never been in the military, so I'm not even sure what some of this means, but I thought I'd go ahead and post it anyway
