Was at this briefing t'other day by some Divisional System bods or something like that telling us all about what was facing the Navy in the coming few years. One thing that came up was that they have identified some JR's at Raleigh now who have been earmarked to be 'fast-tracked' to PO in three years. These JR's are unaware thay they have been pinged. The rationale behind this is that there's going to be a massive shortage of SR's in a few years time. But a no-badge PO? Is anyone going to take them seriously? Do you think a 20/21 year old PO will be able to deal with the man management issues with so little life experience?
