(Team America#12 (fb))- Serving under Elsie Carson, Ralph Sanzetti was one of her top agents. During Christmas time, Elsie would often personally send Sanzetti’s children chocolate Santas, a gift the Sanzetti family enjoyed.

(Team America#12) – Issued orders to terminate Carson, he waited outside her home. When she finally arrived, he calmly gave her the chance to say goodbye to her family. After five minutes, he escorted her outside. Before her could shoot her, Team America rushed the scene and attacked the Hydra squad. In the confusion, Sanzetti rushed back inside, with the intent to kill the entire Carson family. Wolf followed him inside and fought with him. In the struggle, Sanzetti’s gun was turned against him and went off. Sanzetti died instantly as his men were routed.
