QPs,

To start with, thank you for the great information on the forum. It is totally invaluable. However, in utilizing the search function, I have come up short, so here goes.

I'm AD currently in an exclusively strategic unit. MI, and looking to make the leap. My issue is that I have roughly zero experience with Land Nav outside of Basic, and the next time I expect to see any sort of refresher is at BLC. We might occasionally have an STT to familiarize with parts of a map, but never anything hands on. I've been told that on this instillation there are no courses available to us.

Seeing that Land Nav is a huge part of Selection, is there anything that would be recommended to get more familiar with it and just be all around better prepared for the beasts to come?

I honestly have no idea how I missed that in there. I will chalk it up to serious user error. Thank you.

This looks super helpful. I'd never heard of this. Thank you.

Search the internet for local orienteering groups, that will definitely help in the practical application.

When I went to MI ANCOC in 1988, 130 NCOs in the course, 10 passed the old Army basic map reading exam (colors, symbols, plotting coordinates, intersection, resection).

Military Intelligence - the original oxymoron.
