The resident radio specialist of the Desert Rangers. A true wizard with a radio and an antenna, responsible for developing the triangulation procedure for the Californian signals. Together with the rest of Team Echo, he returned to Arizona just in time to defeat the Cochise AI for a second time. He survived the battle where general Vargas did not, and was selected by the surviving Rangers as Vargas' successor.
Following his return from Los Angeles and diligent, distinguished service, Wade Woodson became the commanding General of the Desert Rangers through a vote. Responding to the dramatic situation in Arizona, he dispatched Angela Deth (now a Colonel) as an Advance Team to Colorado Springs, responding to Saul Buchanan's - the Patriarch's - request for Ranger assistance, followed by Team November.

“I think he didn’t look for me,” she snapped. She shook her head. “He knows giving orders from the other side of a radio. What’s he know about being a soldier?”
“There was a vote,” Pete said."
