TOLLBOOTH. The code name used by U.S. Army Sergeant Chuck X. (for nothing) Goren. Tollbooth grew up in Boise, Idaho, and at age six his parents gave him a construction set for Christmas. He wore that out before he was seven and came to love building. Every year his sets got bigger and more complicated until he outgrew them all. He started building for real and enevtually received his Master degree in engineering from MIT. When he decided he wanted a bigger challenge, he joined the Army and became a combat engineer, hoping to be part of the G.I. Joe team. He eventually did just that, signing on to drive the Joes' Bridge-Layer He joined the Joes some time before the team's invasion of the Cobra-controlled town of Springfield. He was one of the few Joes who stayed behind to guard Joe headquarters during that invasion and keep watch over an imprisoned Zartan. Some time later, after the Pit was destroyed, Tollbooth put his engineering skills to good use as he helped build the new Pit III in the Utah desert. His many other missions for the team included the Cobra Island civil war, where he was part of a convoy of reinforcements.
