Being Precise.

March 26, 2013

Being precise is an important part of life. When talking to people, you want to get the message across clearly. When making calculations, you want to be as close as possible to the correct amount. Precision relates to land navigation in ROTC. When plotting points (using a protractor and map to identify points on a map when given coordinates), it is very important to be precise. If you do not plot your points precisely, you could be off on your distances and directions by a large amount. Simple things like not adding/subtracting the magnetic angle to the gird angle, making too large of a pencil mark on the map, or using the protractor incorrectly could distort your sense of direction immensely.
