Boot camp Training Day 1 R&D Department.
Felix looked up from his sketchbook just as Silver finished his speech. Once again, he started to feel nervous at the thought of showing his idea. Looking down at his plans, Felix realized that his plan was starting to look more like a report. Next to his sketches was a written passage explaining his reasoning for this project. He mentally read this passage one last time.     
My plan is to create a wooden cane that would be suited for veterans or disabled military personnel. Most people upon hearing they need to use a cane are reluctant to do so. They tend to see it as a sign of weakness or old age. This cane is made to change that idea. 

The cane will feature an interchangeable handle and scalloped finger grips on the wooden shaft. Two handles will be made with this cane, a Derby handle and a handle with a hand-carved wolf design. The Derby handle offers less strain on the wrists and is more suited for long use. The wolf handle, while not suited for long use, is stylish and has a sophistication vibe that will promote more use during special events. 

The scalloped finger grips could be considered a non-lethal self-defense feature. The extra grip will help keep the cane from being snatched from the user’s hands while providing an uneven surface that can cause welts upon impact. This will be carved at the base of the handles and at the end of the cane. This feature would give the user the sense that the cane is a tool rather than a hindrance.        

Felix sighed as he stood up. He started to wonder if his idea was too simple. Looking at the line of recruits forming in front of Silver only further promoted that idea. A quick glance at  the parts the recruits were carrying to Sliver showed that they had more mechanical and better schemes planned.

As the line started to move, Felix lightly bit down on a finger on his left paw. The slight pain pulled his thoughts away from his negative thoughts. The wolf didn’t have the time to start doubting himself. With a quick breath, he started to gather the materials he would need for his build. Bolts, hanger bolts, a tool box, the Ohia dowel and some planks were slowly placed in front of Sliver’s table. Some of the items had to be carried one at the time since he was one handed. 

After a while, it was his turn to show his plans to the Doctor.

“D-Doctor Silver, here are my notes for my idea. If there are any problems, I am willing to start over.” said the wolf as he placed his plans on his desk and pointed to the pile of items he collected earlier.
Keep moving forward! No matter what! That's my creed.
