  • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas reply Hey, Daniel, great video! Sometimes simple is best just to get out the information. I can see you are good at explaining things in a clear and concise manner, providing just enough detail to inform and hold my interest. You made the ROTC look competent and I'm sure they would appreciate that. Is journalism the career you look to pursue? You've already got a great head start here.
    • [ – ] danielamann parent reply Hey! Thanks!!! Sorry I am just getting back to your comment. I definitely try to be informative, yet simple, clear and concise. I'm glad that you feel that is how I present my stuff. The ROTC men and women were fantastic and did such a good job. We did what they were calling 'dead reckoning' which was essentially as straight a line as possible through the woods and up small cliffs and basically through ponds and the like and it was unbelievable how well we were able to find out way -- absolutely impressive. For now I intend on pursuing my career in golf, but I am majoring in journalism at my university and think it would be a great fallback or on the side option
      • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas parent reply I've only ever played miniature golf, so I don't know the thrill of being out on a large green. Following your passion is awesome!
        • [ – ] danielamann parent reply Not much is better than being out on the course on a day when you're striking it well and seeing puts drop. I think the thing that I love the most about golf is that it never stops being a challenge, and the better you get the more challenging it becomes. Not to mention the fact that it is never the same, even if you play the same course over and over. The other thing that I love about it is the relationships that are built through golf. It is a game that is surrounded by people, played by people, and meant to be played with other people
          • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas parent reply And you get lots of fresh air, sunshine and exercise. Healthy mix.
            • [ – ] danielamann parent reply And wind burn =C My poor face. Yesterday we had 25-50 mph winds most the day and I think I played somewhere between 36-45 holes of golf, and I am feeling it today. I played another 18 this morning and my cheeks burned any time they caught any bit of moving air
              • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas parent reply You are a serious golfer. How are the competitions going?
                • [ – ] danielamann parent reply Season has just started, snow only melted off a while back, and with going to school I won't be in anything serious at least til May. Hitting the ball well though and feeling confident. Shot 4 over par today in very cold, windy, rainy conditions from the back tees. I was extremely happy with that for only playing very limited golf so far
  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply Orienteering is fun. I was a big map nerd and when I was in Army JROTC in high school some of the most fun days we had were with topographical maps. I didn't join the Ranger program (at my high school they were called Raiders) but I did the Military Drill Team which is precision marching and the Military Color Guard which is a lot different from waving a flag around with the marching band. Those were some good memories.
    • danielamann parent reply Wow that's really cool to hear man! Some of the ROTC men and women complained about these maps a bit as they were from the 1960's and I don't know a lot about topographical maps but from they way they made it sound they have changed and are more reliable if you can get your hands on more modern ones. It was fairly cool to have a general idea, however, about how close we could come (about 10-30 meters) from a checkpoint that was half a mile away over some of the most ridiculous terrain ever. I was really impressed to say the least
  • [ – ] JustHypeVibe reply This is a great video explaining about the Program.
  • [ – ] Calibri_Funtimes reply This was fascinating. Thank you for sharing, Daniel!
