Sweetwater's self-description from the Manual
"My name is Private Terrence Sweetwater. I don't mind telling you that all this soldiering crap really freaks me out. I'm not cut out for this. An army tour seemed like an easy way to get the scholarship I needed. But with my skills and knowledge I figured I wouldn't have to do any fighting.
"Turns out I was wrong, 'cause here I am - in Bad Company. And, boy, did they get that name right! In fact, the company is so bad that sometimes I think I'm more likely to get killed by my own squad than by the enemy. That kinda sucks. But, still, we do get some good toys. Did you see that new laser designator? Pretty cool, huh?"
