Open Militia · 4 members · Last activeServing the Tampa Bay area. What is a militia? 1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers; 2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency; 3. The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service. - The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition. This new militia welcomes Active and Supporting members. We are a defensive group, and we fully support our dedicated Law Enforcement Officers. We plan to be ready to assist if called upon. We aim to take preparedness seriously while factoring in that people have busy lives. Our first goal is to grow membership to include people with a wide variety of skills and knowledge. Active members will be required to meet physical fitness standards (9-minute mile or sub 32-minute 5K). Semi-regular runs in our beautiful Pinellas County could be a fun way to stay fit and socialize. All fitness levels are welcome to join as Supporting members.
