"Iron Mike" McGraw, the "greatest gyrene of them all," is a two-fisted square-jawed Marine who with his best friend and "sidekick" "Gunny" Gorski wages war against Godless Communism, performing brave behind-enemy-lines missions and doing things like lobbing lit dynamite at the enemy from close range. (The war looks so easy, it's a wonder that we didn't win it in a matter of weeks.)
That's "Iron Mike," by the way, in the picture; the poor schmuck he's throwing around is "Gunny." They're fighting because a Evil Communist Lieutenant is making them fight to the death. You know, the usual kind of thing for "Iron Mike."
Note: As with a few other characters on this site, there's really
not that much I can say about "Iron Mike." He's a Marine. He hates the
Red Menace. He fights in Korea. He's just zis guy, you know?
