D-Day is the code name used by U.S. Army Sergeant David Brewi. He is one of six Screaming Eagles under the command of Sgt. Savage.
Brewi was born in Bayshore [sic], New York. Not much is known of his life before Sgt. Savage took command of Brewi and five other highly-trained, undisciplined sergeants. Brewi and the other Screaming Eagles have since helped stop NASA from unwittingly deploying a cyber doomsday device, protect a nuclear facility, served with distinction on maneuvers in the arctic before moving to reserve status.
Under Savage, Brewi was assigned to a search-and-rescue operation in South America. In addition to the jungle heat, he was forced to fight off an onslaught of hostile, indigenous rebels to reach the crashed plane he was looking for. After locating the pilot and attending to his wounds, he camouflaged himself and the pilot, and carried the pilot up a sheer rock face with a customized cliff climber.
According to Savage, the most dangerous weapon in Brewi's arsenal is "the way he shoots off his mouth."
A Real American Hero continuity
Hasbro Comics continuity
Although only identifiable in one panel, Brewi, along with the other Screaming Eagles, appear in the Sgt. Savage vs. Gen. Blitz mini-comics packed with select toys. In the comic, the Eagles defend a nuclear facility from the I.R.O.N. Army, drawing the enemy into a trap by hiding under the dirt of their bunker before attacking and driving back General Blitz's forces.
On each figure's card-back were short comics, akin to newspaper comic strips. In one Brewi wins a bar fight against some men disrespecting the uniform. Another details his escape from the rebels during his South American assignment.
Devil's Due Comics continuity
During the conflict now known as World War III, Brewi was stationed in Algeria, North Africa.
Brewi's only known appearance in cartoon form is the single Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles episode, Old Soldiers Never Die. Along with the other Eagles, Brewi helps stop NASA from unwittingly deploying a cyber doomsday device.
There were two D-Day toys released as part of the Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles toyline.
D-Day (v1) was dressed in olive drabs and included a M1 Garand, Thompson SMG, what looks like a MP 40 SMG (which is a WWII weapon, but a Nazi weapon), Colt M1900, helmet, and missile launcher and missile.
Jungle Camo D-Day (v2) had a US Woodland camouflage pattern applied to his ODs and included a helmet, Thompson SMG, Colt M1900, face paint, and equiptment necessary to build the cliff climber (missile launcher backpack, grappling missile, string, pole and bases).
- Brewi's assignment to North Africa during WWIII could be a reference to Operation Torch, due to the Sgt. Savage toyline's roots in WWII. Though, because of his name, north-western France would have been more appropriate.
- On the packaging of some Sgt. Savage toys was a secret code, which could be deciphered using a decoder ring included with Urban Attack Dynamite. The code included with Jungle Camp D-Day, when translated, reads: Sgt. Savage’s favorite foods are hamburgers, french fries, cola, and ice cream.
