I do. Because whether its based on learning leadership quality, everyday life questions or to finding out other means of support, it's good. Sites like RP offer that to those that need it or could extend a helping hand.
Most of my friends are veterans, police officers or service members...they are my support channel and my confidants. I do have a few friends that are strictly civilians, but they are truly the exception.

Very true Colonel, seems both Military and Police Officers find their support among their peers. Sometimes there is a social isolation and We tend to stick with those of a simular background as they tend to understand as a result of their own experience. The find often when they try to socialize with others outside their circle it all about complaining about one thing or the other the Police or Military does with no understanding whatever of either professional area. Often the experience is not pleasant or at least uncomfortable and like anyone else retreat to people they are comfortable with and do share experiences and knowledge with.
