Reinforcements have arrived...
The Vegetable Liberation Army is proud to present three new recruits to the HMRU: Placido Haricot Vert, his brother Jose Haricot Vert and Luciano Vert Pomme!
Having retired from Vegetable Service some years ago, famed Vegetable Songsters Placido, Jose and Luciano were a bit dazed and confused upon arrival at VLA Headquarters (maybe it was the polka dot chair pictured above that contributed to their condition) after having been briefed regarding the nature of their enlistment by base Kommander Killer Korn. Afterall, the Beet at the recruitment office told them that if they reenlisted they'd only have to entertain the troops in between missions this time 'round. Duped but not done in by this news, these Green Commandos dusted themselves off from their journey and have resigned themselves to the task at hand. Soon these Legume Lads will begin training and as a result will most likely lose those extra fibers around their guts that civilian life and an on again off again career in show business has imposed.
Pilgrim Tater is very excited about these new additions to the Holiday Meal Recovery Unit. Not only are these Legumes highly trained Veggie Vigilantes (once a soldier, always a soldier), but when not on a mission this Legume Legion hopes to make a little money on the side by moonlighting at the local clubs and bars in order to show off their vocal stylings with a variety of tunes that range from oldies such as Fly Me to the Moon to Mozart's fabulous The Marriage of Figaro, yes, in it's entirety.
Having recovered fully from their initial shock, the Legume Laddies are anxious to begin the Fruit and Vegetable life-saving efforts this holiday season is sure to foist upon them. The entire VLA is positive that these Green Grenades of Pure Veggie Power (both on and off the stage) will put forth 100% effort in order to make the world a safer place for all Vegetable Matter.

Yep, I think it's time for some Autumn-hued camo too...
