Please retract your unbrage. I was specific about that being an Army phenomenon. (Wasn't I? If not, that's what I meant.) In my multi-service experience I've found aviators (including USAF) and sailors to be quite good at nav.

Reason: p.s. "aviator" is intended to be generic for all kinds of pilots.
I talked to Gene Cernan last night... He said the new lunar mapping satellite images WILL SHOW.... that he left the lunar car parked with the front wheel cranked left and his daughters initials written in the lunar powder by the front wheel. He says an image is posted that shows the car and you can indeed see the wheels are cocked left.... I didn't have time to ask him where he left the Hasselblad surveying body before he took the 70mm film back off.
This is cool... Mr. Cernan must have seen a yet higher res print but here it is... he says one day they will be able to see his doodles in the sand an footprints. I didn't realize he was on the moon for 72 hours... that is a while. http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/3...m_4release.jpg
