Yes sir, I figured it was probably starting very soon, if not already. I actually wouldn't hate selecting P8s right out of the gate like that.they were always going to have to. its been posted here before, but you can not start an active duty squadron with just a bunch of senior dudes. there may have been some rumors going around to the contrary, i suspect it was just some dudes trying to puff themselves up a bit.
squadrons need FNGs to make coffee, take nut shots from nerf footballs, and gain operational experience so they can be turned around and become FRS instructors.
