The Alabama Militia is looking for members that want to serve our Community and State. We offer training and comradery as well as a place for your family to prosper. We pride ourselves on not being the Stereotypical Militia. Everyone is welcome, regardless of race, creed, gender, color, religion, or political affiliation, provided you do not wish to bring harm to our country or people. The Alabama Militia does not tolerate Racism, Right/Left/Center Wing Extremism, Anti-Government or Anti-Law Enforcement Agendas.
The Alabama Militia is distinct from the Alabama State Defense Force (Alabama State Militia) in that it is not recognized as part of the organized militia by the government of Alabama, but is rather privately organized by private citizens as an unorganized militia. Our Area of Operation is the entire State of Alabama.
Title 31 - MILITARY AFFAIRS AND CIVIL DEFENSE. Chapter 2 - MILITARY CODE. Section 31-2-5 - Composition of unorganized militia.

The unorganized militia shall consist of all able-bodied male resident citizens of the state and all able-bodied resident males who have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States, between the ages of 17 and 45, and of such other persons, male and female, as may, upon their own application, be enlisted or commissioned therein, subject to any existing law, who are not serving in any force of the organized militia and who are not on the state retired list.

Someone who combines prepping and homesteading may be a Prepsteader. Why focus on one or the other when you can learn more. Joining the Alabama Militia doesnt mean you are a militant. We do so much more and have a lot more to learn.
The Alabama Militia was formed to support the Constitutions of the United States an Alabama. Our purpose is to serve, aid, and protect our families and communities. We train for more than Military purposed. We share information and training with each other about medical, food storage, CERT missions, and much more. Contact us and find out more.
We are an all volunteer force who pay for their own equipment, training, travel and time in order to better serve our communities.
It is our goal to have a Company of trained personnel in every county we serve, and someday, across the state.
We train as Ultra Light Infantry but incorporate other skills for our members. Our goal is to train so we can serve the Governor and/or the County Sheriff with all the skills needed in an emergency.
Our members should be C.E.R.T. trained hopefully within their first year of joining and we continually require training for different aspects of disaster relief from Traffic and Crowd Control to Search and Rescue.
