In just about every case, these folks have 1500+ hours of turbine PIC (fighters or heavies). If "recast," they have low hours when compared to other 121 pilots with similar years or experience, which obviously hurts their chances of getting to a major at the beginning of this wave.
Going to a regional is not going to automatically remove all their military experience.
