Even though the Joes had seen sometimes Sergeant Craig, a cadre non-commissioned officer at the chaplain's assistant school, they didn't know she also was Shooter, a secret member of their own team. General Flagg and Sparks sent her to help Rock 'n Roll, Stalker and Steeler in Sierra Gordo. Captain Brad Ambruster transported her from New Jersey to Cuba, where she boarded an helicopter piloted by William Hardy that left her at Sierra Gordo with her orders. There, she remained hidden shooting many soldiers who tried to kill the Joes. She then shot a prisoner Stalker was carrying to allow them escape, since Stalker would never leave the prisoner behind.
Weeks later, during Operation: Lady Doomsday, Shooter had to get rid of the Cobra Troopers who tried to shoot the Joes' escape helicopter, but she blew her cover when she saw Cobra was using civilians as ammo-bearers. Thanks to her, the ammo-bearers could escape, but the Cobra Troopers killed Shooter.
- Shooter was first mentioned in the very first issue of the Marvel series. In a scene where the dossiers of all G.I. Joe members were displayed on a computer screen and as well as the original team seen in the issue several additional members were alluded to. The only clear name was "Shooter", named after then Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter.
