Learn about Missouri Militia

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Did you know we have a Missouri Militia? It is a state government sanctioned (under law) organization of volunteers that serve our state in times of distress. I learned about it from their website (missourimilitia.com).

They are not kooks like some of the people that call themselves militias but people who assist government in floods, tornadoes, etc.

They receive no public funds or benefits but pay for everything out of their own pockets. They could use some financial help in the form of donations and they could use more volunteers.

I urge you to check this organization out. They are not anarchists nor racists.
