Future U.S. Marine Eric Nagy practices the thumb-loop hold and familiarizes himself with the compass before setting off to locate various points around Hogback Ridge Park February 18. The future Marines also known as poolees got a taste of an important skill which military members must learn in order to be better prepared for Marine Corps Recruit Training. Recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina, are expected to pass two different land navigation training events: one during the day and one at night. Nagy is from Conneaut, Ohio, and will graduate from Conneaut High School in June. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Stephen D. Himes/Released)
