The Fightin’ Tiger Clemson Army ROTC battalion met for a Land Navigation

On October 3, 2013 the Fightin’ Tiger Battalion conducted land navigation training for the ML Is (freshman) and ML IIs (sophomores), while the ML IIIs conducted land navigation at Fants Grove. The area of operations for this lab was the rugby field and crew hill. The following write up was provided by Cadet David Spearman. “The Fightin’ Tiger Clemson Army ROTC battalion met for a Land Navigation or LandNav, for short, crash course. The ML1 and 2 cadets were led through various and diverse exercises including; but not limited to; taking wooded and trail pace counts, finding azimuths and back azimuths, finding points that aren’t visible from the apparent destination, and map reading. The course began in the woods of Crew Hill where cadets participated in wooded LandNav events and concluded in nearby rugby field where ML4 cadets ensured that the younger cadets were up to scratch on the more theoretical aspects of LandNav.”
