"A SPECIAL FORCES ENGINEER . . .
. . . should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, con a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly.”
- Robert A. Heinlein
This piece of wisdom was included in a class on Bridge Design, part of the academic phase of the Special Forces "Q" Course for 18C (Engineer).
