Sometimes we receive requests to publish pieces written by civilian authors with no prior military background but strong opinions or relevant experiences onto Command Post (http://www.rallypoint.com/command-post). In the past, writing pieces for CP has only been an option for active SMs and veterans. Should we open up the section to civilians as well, or leave it as-is?

Thanks for the feedback!

The Command Post has the opportunity to review, suggest alternatives and ultimately publish/or not any submissions.

Therefore. I think the quality/relevance of the submission should be the deciding factor rather than who wrote it.

I'm okay with non-veterans or active service members expressing opinions on RP as long as they are clearly identified as "Pure Civilians." I worked with many government employees and contractors who were pure civilians and found their opinions on military matters useful and sometimes quire refreshing. One way to get ideas that don't match the classical military thinking.

I have no problem with it if they're not anonymous (seems to be a thing these days). I would have a big problem with it if they wanted to remain anonymous. We have valuable Civilians who contribute, I see no reason they couldn't in this manner, as well.
