Old-School Training in a High-Tech World

Ohio Air National Guard Staff Sgt. Kyle Meyer, security forces journeyman at the 180th Fighter Wing, operates a compass to determine the direction he and his fellow Airmen need to walk to successfully navigate a training course set up in the Oak Openings Metro Park in Swanton, Ohio, Sep. 27, 2015. Oak Openings provides a real-world terrain for Airmen using traditional navigational tools to conduct their annual training by maneuvering their way through the park’s sand dunes and wetlands.
