I just finished selections, and have orders to go to 18D course in April. I've heard from several people that the training you receive as 18D is only a couple of classes short of being a PA. Does anyone have any info on this? It would certainly be nice to have that as a fall-back, in case I ever want to leave ODA. And it'd make up for being in training for 20 months

When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved."
