Beach Head's enthusiasm for Law didn't last. His first exercise consisted of locating and disposing a bomb hidden somewhere in a mock-up village within 5 minutes. To assist him, Law whistled in his partner, Order. The German shepherd was pleased to meet Beach Head, who didn't return the feeling, demanding to know why he was brought along. Law explained they were a tag-team; Order found the bombs while Law disposed of them. With a wink, he added that they attempted reversing roles with little success.Order's search eventually led him into a house, and found the bomb under an orange blanket with 89 seconds until detonation. Upon return, Beach Head quickly grabbed the bomb from his mouth and threw it across the village, only for Order to give chase and catch it in mid-air. As the timer reached 9 seconds, Order was not so willing to hand the bomb over to Beach-Head again. With seconds to spare, Law calmly asked Order to give it to him, slowly withdrew the bomb from his jaws, patted the dog, and threw it into the air where it exploded harmlessly.
Law defended Order's misbehavior, claiming he thought they were playing, and how he's usually more obedient. Beach Head muttered his desire for both to catch fleas.

- It was common practice at Hasbro among the toy makers to sculpt action figures to look like real life individuals - including employees of Hasbro. Law was sculpted to resemble Kirk Bozigian - a Hasbro executive who was one of the driving forces behind G.I. Joe's return in 1982 as The Real American Hero.
- The 1993 version of Law would have been part of the Drug Elimination Force subseries if it hadn't been cancelled. Strangely enough, Law saw release in Australia (of all places) that same year as figure #1 of the DEF's second wave.
- Law's 1991 filecard was written in-house at Hasbro, then sent to Larry Hama for editing. The original reads:
|“||Law's been pounding a beast as head of security of G.I. joe for a mighty long time. He's stubborn, mule-headed and won't give up a fight, no matter how outnumbered or outgunned he might be. So when the Sonic Fighters Division was looking for someone to protect the most expensive and highly classified equipment in the entire G.I. Joe arsenal, Law was the first man on the roster. A trained martial arts expert, Law is also Airborne qualified.||”|
