Land navigation is just one of the many warrior tasks that we train. Learning how to navigate from point to point using only a map, compass and protractor helps you build the fundamentals skills that soldiers must maintain. A leader has to know where he is and where he is going before he can accomplish his mission.

“ The leadership training that I experienced as a member of the Bulldog BN could not have been duplicated in any other setting. Not only do I feel prepared for the Army, but I am better prepared for life beyond college. From travel, to training, to friends, the Bulldog BN is an exceptional opportunity to develop yourself as a leader. ”
