One source we have seen ( lists Sgt. Brian Muldoon as a character who appears in this issue, but all other sources we have seen do not mention this character. After carefully reading this issue for ourselves, we have concluded that it is not Muldoon who appears, but rather it is the desk sergeant who was seen previously (in Captain America volume 1 #153). Muldoon was unmasked as the "Cowled Commander," and he would probably still be in prison for his times. He certainly would regained his previous position with the 47th Precinct. Moreover, the man who "rookie Steve Rogers" addresses as "Sarge" in this issue looks like Brian Muldoon.
