Joe Team Ripcord has one of the most dangerous assignments among members of the G.I. Joe Team. HALO Jumper (High Altitude Low Opening) What he does is jump from a plane so high up in a sky that you need an oxygen mask just to breathe. He then falls like a dead rock for thousands of feet and, at the last possible moment, open his parachute. The margin for error is way too small for any corrections. All this is to avoid visual and electronic detection. It takes a man who more than really loves skydiving to take that assignment. Ripcord has great confidence in his skills, experience and coolness under pressure.
