Synopsis
Wade Collins is having a flashback of Vietnam. Sean wants to join the army, Wade tells him to write a letter to Snake-Eyes. In the letter, Sean states he wants glory and honor. Snake-Eyes explains the story of Ramon Escobedo. Stalker was there to get away from the gangs. Storm Shadow was sent to further training of his ninja skills. Snake-Eyes wasn't sure why he was there himself. Snake-Eyes explained that there is no glory in war. There is great inhumanity in war, also bravery, compassion, honor and dignity. Sean realizes he wants to think about it before becoming a soldier.

Indexer Notes

This issue pretty much ends the saga for Hasbro's Joe line at Marvel, as the toy line was cancelled as well by 1995 (a result of their purchase of Kenner toys, which merged both brands together).

The series would later be revived in 2004-2008 by Devil's Due as one alternative future w/out Larry Hama; the 2nd alternative future now being done by Larry Hama in 2010 for IDW, the current Joe comic licensee.
