I trust HR as much as I trusted the Navy when I was in. "Oh, you say we're going to Singapore, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, Oman, Jordan, Dubai, Perth, Sydney, Guam and Hawaii? I'll believe that when it happens" Spoiler alert, we did Oman, Thailand, Hong Kong, Guam, Hawaii.That rumor came from HR. I asked if En route would have to go to the academy, she said "No, no one is going to the academy, everyone is direct facility." How much you trust HR is up to you.
Besides, Iv been through the school house once before, HR isnt told much very often so I find it hard to believe that HR would put that out. I hope im wrong, but just as the end of that post said, we wont know until it happens. Which is the only way to survive in a Military branch not the Air Force and on this bid to date as nothing has happened as promised.
