Dusty knows that the very thought of desert training induces terminal belly aching in even the most seasoned troopers. The blistering heat during the day, freezing cold at night, snakes, scorpions, sheet lightning, dust storms and dry, gritty sand - none of these things faze Dusty and his Coyote Sandstorm because they are natural trappings of what they consider to be their home. Fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, Dusty is also conversant in Kazakh and Khalkha (Eastern Mongolian).

"Dusty can track like a hungry wolf, go to ground like a spooked prairie dog and fight like a wounded bobcat. He's got the patience of a Diamondback rattler, the social garces of a gila monster and the taste buds of a coyote. In short, he's not much use anything except sneaking up behind bad guys in the desert and popping a can of firefight."
