Back in the good old days when a new Soldier came on board it was generally considered SOP that the guy would get hazed and drunk courtesy of his platoon buddies. This generally introduced the guy to everyone.

But I agree it is quite discourteous to not introduce someone new to a team.
I mean welcome the "new guy/gal" and make them feel like they are part of the team. I always make it a point to introduce new members of my teams, to the others. It's hard enough as it is on the first day.
