I think reserve and guard status personnel are missing out
on some opportunity by not participating on this site. Here is one thing that may encourage them to
join. I actively search this site for
Veteran status, Guard status, and Reserve status individuals for the purpose of
hiring them in the civilian sector.
Shouldn't that be a good enough reason to put your name out there?
Just like any other social media site, you have your early birds, looking for the next best thing, and wanting to put an early stamp on it. Then you have the sheep, they look from afar and worry about is this thing real, or is it a scam. As time goes on and more people are talking about what they heard a CSM/COL/GEN say on RP, around the water cooler, more people will look into it. Word of mouth is the cheapest and most effective marketing strategy. Add in the ability to pick the brains of your superiors and in some cases debate a topic (respectfully of course), people will wander into the pot.
To answer the original question, I say this, a think tank should always be about quality, but if you limit yourself to like minded people how do you truely consider yourself solving anything? I do not think having a strong NG presence would overwhelm the site, but would give higher ups a good ability to understand how to better intergrate and include these units in future endevors.
