    Sure next years LDAC will have a lot of "precautions".

    I failed my first night land nav. Why? B/c I was a "good cadet", and while I found all of my points, I was walking back to the TOC, had about 20 minutes left. While walking back, I start hearing a whistle. I'm like "FUCK", so I'm rushing to see what is happening. The whistle is about 1500m off the road to the left.

    Turns out a cadet that had never seen woods, let alone done real land nav, got lost, got frustrated, sat down on an ant hill, and then started freaking out when they attacked her. She threw her flash light, her map, compass, everything and start running. Ended up falling into a hole and broke her ankle.

    There was a medic HMMWV posted at one of the intersections. I walked her over to it. The SPC told me he'd make sure I was given an exemption on the time due to the situation. I get back, and this LT was like "nope, fail"
     
  12. Oh I will, I've read enough of your OPSEC stuff. I also can't PM since I don't have a sub so none of that either.
     
  13. This story actually made me angry. My compass and flashlight actually broke on my third point and the LT at the checkpoint gave me his key chain flashlight thing, thank God.

    You can look him up on Facebook. His profile reveals an interesting character. Seemed pretty religious, but overly critical of himself. Who knows what was going through his mind. I know some other LT's here at BOLC think there was some foul play involved.
