  • Welcome to My Militia!

    As a citizen of the United States, you are a member of the Constitutionally guaranteed unorganized militia. 

    Everything you have heard about militias from the media is likely wrong. Main stream news has primarily reported on the negative stereotypes and criminal activity of groups that have nothing to do with militia. The true militia has exactly the opposite purpose; to uphold the law and the Constitution.  

    We are a growing community of Americans that believe that the supreme laws of our Constitution must be diligently protected and upheld. Fostering the lawful rebirth of State militia is a crucial step in preserving the Republic.

About This Militia

Our purpose is to provide an independent layer of protection between our families, our elderly, and the weak in our communities against a disaster or threat.....while serving those who are less fortunate and the brave who have died so we might see the fruit of freedom that on this day becomes of a threat from an unstable world.

Loyalty Oath - By joining our unit you hereby confirm you will abide to and be bound by the following oath...

I solemnly swear/affirm that it is my duty to protect and defend the unalienable Rights of all members of the community. Under no circumstances will the West Tennessee Volunteer Militia tolerate those who advocate acts of criminal violence, terrorism, or racism. I will support and defend the US and Tennessee Constitutions against all enemies, foreign and domestic. So help me God.
  1. What's new in this militia
  2. Let me start with some fiction: Best War Novel EVER: The Killer Angels, Michael Shaara. About the Battle of Gettysburg, seen from both sides; wonderful character development. They made a not-too-bad movie out of it, Gettysburg. But the book is far far better. He, and then his son, wrote a Prequel later, and a sequel, but this is THE book. Best novel of the war in the air during WWII: Bomber, by Len Deighton. |Hollywood made an Americanized version of it that had nothing at all to do with the original, called The Memphis Bell. Worth seeing, but not really a movie of the book. It's about a mis-directed RAF raid on Germany -- told from the point of view of the crew of one of the Lancaster bombers that carried it out, plus the point of view of German nightfighter pilots plus the point of view of the people they dropped the bombs on ... and Deighton went and interviewed them all. It's REAL. Both the people, and the technical stuff (how many meters into its flight did a German 20mm cannon shell self-destruct? What is 'bumping' to gain altitude? How do you get out of a searchlight beam if your aircraft is caught in one that is following you across the sky?) Best sci-fi novels about war of the future: Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers, and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Oh yeah, while we're at it, why not The Puppet Masters. It's not great fiction in the Nobel Prize class -- really, just high-quality juvenile fiction with rather two-dimensional goodies and baddies -- but they all carry a moral tale -- which is why every young patriot should be given them to read. Hollywood -- the evil bastards -- made a hideous parody of Starship Troopers ... it made me ill to watch. So much for fiction. Non-fiction another time: I'm currently reading through half a dozen military Combat Medic books, with a view to summarizing/condensing/reviewing them, so that the essential knowledge can be made available to every militia unit. But I'm not a specialist, so maybe my reviews will attract the comment of people who actually have been there and who would be invaluable in making observations. (I have to say, the military seem to have an obsession with turning everything into an acronym -- it's like learning a new language.) I'm also working on a review of the classics of guerilla warfare (Che, Mao, Marighella, Tabor (War of the Flea) and Max Boot's recent book on the whole subject, Invisible Armies), plus some books on urban uprisings and revolutions and civil wars -- 1848 and 1872-73 in France;1905 and 1917 in Russia; Germany 1919-1933; the Comintern's book Armed Insurrection, written in the late 20s in the light of their failures in Hungary, Germany, Estonia, and China by a committee with the collective nom de plume of A. Neuberg; the Spanish Civil War 1936-39, and the post-war Greek civil war. Then, to the extent that Boot's book doesn't go into enough detail, the whole Latin American experience, which, except for Cuba and Nicaragua, mainly provides negative examples. The value of these books is not in their technical military details, which are largely irrelevant to North America, but in explaining the political background -- which the guerillas and their supporters shaped -- which allowed for their success, or failure. This is an area that is not given much attention in the militia movement, and yet it's vital.
  3. On this day the West Tennessee Volunteer Militia was formed.
  4. I would like to start a militia reading list. I believe its always good to be well informed. As this thread continues, I invite you to add books, videos, and any other resources that you feel might be of value in expanding the knowledge of this group. My recommendations: -The Official US Army Small Unit Tactics Handbook-Infantry Platoon and Squad -US Army Guerrilla Warfare Handbook -US Army Special Forces Guide to Unconventional Warfare -Tactical Combat Casualty Care and Wound Treatment -The Constitution -Bushcraft/primitive survival manuals -Green Eyes Black Rifles -Stay in the Fight!! This is just a quick list and is my no means all inclusive. Again I encourage input from members of the group.
