Golden Age Origin Edit

Chase Yale was a war correspondent in both Europe and the South Pacific during WWII who joined Naval Intelligence. He later put on the costume of Commando Yank and began fighting the enemies of freedom both as a costumed hero and in his civilian identity as a reporter. He had no powers but used guns, knives, and various fighting forms to combat Axis forces such as the Black Dragon Society.

In WOW #33, he had a crossover adventure with Phantom Eagle. While they often shared the cover, this was their only meeting.
