Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it." -- Frederic Bastiat
"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter." Ernest Hemingway

I would hasten to say that military friends ( for those who have served) would fit into this category. Sad to say that most civilian friends don't. They are the ones who are missing out on a true quality friendship. In real life, I could probably count the number of true friends on one hand, maybe two. They are either former military, LE or members of my local church. And here I am. A Civilian.
True friends will accept you as you are, despite your shortcomings.
True friends would even take a bullet for you, if it meant saving your life.
True friends are priceless, and generally very hard to come by. (in my experience)
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

And true friends will help you hide the body. And so it goes on and on
Sadly, one of the reasons researchers like Violanti have found retiree suicdes are so much higher than active officers, and disability retiree suicides even higher yet, is because of the realization that the fallacy of the lifelong "family" doesn't hold up. It's a sad story we see often repeated--an innocent belief carried many years that becomes a bitter disappointment for far too many retirees.
It's vitally important that, through our careers, we balance our relationships between police and civilian, law enforcement and other occupations and interests in order to keep ourselves emotionally healthy. Approximately 56% of police officers retire on disability--and whether disability or service retirement, few are prepared for the changes that come.Badge of Life Suicide Prevention

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
