U.S. Army Capt. Jonathan J. Springer, 101st Airborne Division, tests his new smart phone application in eastern Afghanistan’s Pech River Valley Jan. 9th. Springer, a Fort Wayne, IN, native, invented the navigational application to find an inexpensive yet reliable tool for Soldiers to use while at home or in a deployed environment.

Tactical Nav, which is expected to be available through Apple’s App Store next month, assists soldiers in mapping, plotting and photographing waypoints on a battleground and conveying coordinates to support.[More…]Capt. Jonathan J. Springer nice to see your dream become a reality! You rock!
