Joe, return to base

For a brief time - near the end of elementary school - my bedroom had a G.I. Joe action figure and a Kiss album.

The music was ascending and my devotion to Joe was in the decline.

Yet, in its prime a G.I. Joe was an it toy for most boys in the 1970s. I'd have to check with my parents to see if old Joe is stashed away in the attic; I'm pretty sure the Kiss albums are long-gone.

With a new G.I. Joe movie opening this weekend, The Star's Escapes section is looking for people willing to share their memories of G.I. Joe.
