MOUT and obstacle course architects and engineers

Context

These notes relate to my 2015 article for KCET's Artbound, "Machines for Training: Military Performance and Embodied Knowledge". I'm thinking of some kind of follow up piece that looks at the architecture of training structures, and I'm thinking that one way into that piece might be to profile some of the architects and engineers who design and build these structures.
