In the G1 Transformers cartoon, we meet Marissa Faireborn, a member of the Earth Defense Command. We learn that she has family in the military.
Both the Transformers and GI Joe are made by Hasbro, and both TV shows were made by the same animation studios.
Marissa Faireborn shares a last name with Dashiell Faireborn, aka Flint, one of the members of GI Joe. Flint is often depicted as having a romantic relationship with Lady Jaye, another member of the team.
Has there been any official statement linking the characters?
