Do I need renters insurance if I live in military housing?

I underwent a financial assessment and it was recommended that I get renters insurance. Do I need it?

“When you are living in military housing, you are not responsible for the home itself. But on the other hand, the military is not responsible for your personal property.
For example, if there is a storm that causes flooding and damage to your property, the military is not going to replace your belongings. It would be a good idea to have renters insurance to make sure the belongings you own are protected. “
