As an accountant for a large publishing firm, Alpine took up mountain climbing prior to his enlistment and assignment to the G.I. Joe team in 1986. Prior to joining the Joe team, Alpine graduated Ranger School at Fort Benning. Alpine often uses humor to lighten people's mood, but is a serious soldier when he has to be.
On Alpine's first mission as a member of G.I. Joe he was part of a team sent to Cobra Island to rescue Ripcord, a Joe who had parachuted onto the island days before. The operation also doubled as a recon mission. On that mission, Alpine showed his climbing skill when he and the other Joes scaled the volcano on the island. Shortly after that mission, Alpine was part of the Joes' invasion of the Cobra-controlled town of Springfield. After returning from Springfield, Alpine and several other Joes attempted to re-capture Zartan, a Cobra agent who had escaped G.I. Joe headquarters with the help of his siblings and the Dreadnoks. The team was caught off guard by the Thunder Machine, the Dreadnoks' assault vehicle, and Zartan escaped.
