As with virtually all SPARTAN-IIIs, the members of Team India were recruited voluntarily from orphans of Covenant attacks on human colonies. Initiated into Beta Company circa 2539,[Note 1] they were trained under Lieutenant Commander Kurt Ambrose and Senior Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez on the planet Onyx. During Operation: TORPEDO in 2545, all members of Team India, along with most of Beta Company, were killed in action.
