"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

There is a reason why the TOP GUN pilots on the Raven are the best in the fleet. TOP GUN status on the Raven can ONLY be attained by receiving 100 percent on their exam, on thei first try. That is why they are the ELITES.

You couldn't have said it any better Hitman!!! If the Nuggets learn the most things about being a successful pilot most of them will do just fine.

Nothing make me happier than to see new "Top Gun" award winners. I hope to see more aboard the Raven in the near future. Of course, new pilots aren't forced to take the exams, but I hope they do so they can be the best they can be.

As always, the standards to be a TOP GUN pilot on the Raven, will remain the same. In order to become a TOP Gun pilot, all new nuggets testing, will need to score a 100% on their first try. That is why, they are the elites of all the pilots in the fleet for only the Best of the Best names goes on the TOP Gun Wall.

I absolutely agree with you Sir. It was you who gave us the tools to make it back home. If it weren't for you I know a lot of us may have never came back. Now the Major gets to do it for the newbies.

My Point is If you can Teach A Nugget How to Kick ass,And Bring His/Her Butt Back Safely to Do it Again Another Day;Then you have Made A Difference;Personalities Really Don't Mean Much;Just make sure the Kids have the Tools.

Comment by LT Eric "Hitman" Morelli on September 12, 2015 at 3:26pm
Pardon me Sirs, but I know that new nuggets will get the best of training that the Fleet can offer, right here on the Raven. Col. You have laid down a solid foundation from which I know that the new CAG can build upon. All of the pilots here know what it's like to be a new nugget under Col. Leonidas and we hold that close to our hearts every time we are out there recycling toasters. I can now look forward to seeing the look in the eyes of the new nuggets. That same look of anticipation and eagerness I had coming in. Then being able to reign it in and teach them like you taught us, to get home safe.
It's an exciting time right now and I am sure glad I am serving under you both right now.

As long as They Know About how To make it Back, They'll Do Fine!
