No, you are never too old to join the Tennessee Valley Militia.

We have positions for everyone. We need people to help perform security, assist PrepSteaders, help with the field kitchen, set up radio nets and with training. We are certain that there is something that you can do and if not, we will make a place for you.

The highlighted section below explains this very clearly.

You are never too young to start learning how to be self sufficient through survival skills and firearm safety. To actively join the militia and participate in all training exercises, you must be 17 years of age. If you are under 17, you must have a parent with you but we also have a Prepsteader group that supports the Militia. That is a great way to start out and when you turn 17, you can then move to the Militia if you choose.

We welcome women to the organization. Men and women are accepted equally in the militia as well as in the PrepSteaders.

No matter what shape you are in physically, you are needed. You will be surprised at how quickly you will lose weight, gain endurance, and increase muscles with the monthly training exercises. If you are physically unable to participate in training due to age, injuries, or just arent interested in walking in the woods, but still want to contribute, the Alabama Militia also has Prepsteaders, Staff Positions, and a Base Defense Force. Our Base Defense Force is the primary security for our base operations and dose not require you to go on patrols. Their primary mission is to secure and maintain Base Operations and insure safety of our members.

There are several levels of involvement within the Alabama Militia and the PrepSteaders. It is entirely possible for someone to be extremely active and no one will be the wiser. No one talks about who attends meetings to anyone else. You will find most militia members expect and honor personal privacy.

Also, if you are an active member, the number of people who know your full name is minimal. We do not encourage underground cells, it’s hard to be of help to your community by not being known. Besides, those who want to be covert, or underground members draw attention to themselves for that very reason. You will be surprised at the quality and character of people active in the Alabama 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.

NO ONE will be harassed because of such, we are all the same. Everyone is given the same respect. No speeches or preaching or even talk regarding the inferiority of any other race, creed, religion, etc. will be tolerated. Some members offer prayers prior to eating or other functions, but it is not a requirement that anyone participates. If you choose not to, no one will confront you about it. We do ask, as a courtesy, that you do not interrupt anyone during these times.

Yes, everyone is welcome. You would be surprised to find your common concerns are shared with many of our members. The more active you are within the Militia and PrepSteaders, the easier you will find yourself fitting in.

We teach you about firearm safety, shooting, survival, tactics, working as a team and more. We have instructors that have a wide variety of Military and Law Enforcement experience that will help and train you. Do not feel intimidated by a limited knowledge with guns, military items, etc. We were all in that same position at one time or another, we are glad to share our knowledge if you are willing to learn.

There are no Dues for being a member of the Alabama Militia. We ask that you cover your own costs for supplies, maybe add in a few dollars when the group eats as a unit to cover the cost of the food. We do take donation of equipment and supplies to assist other members in obtaining the equipment needed for training. 

We may, at a later date request donations/dues from Staff Officers and NCOs to assist with obtaining the critical items we need to train, but it is not our intention to charge anyone to be a Patriot.

The only other cost in joining the Militia is in your acquiring the Uniforms, Head gear, Packs, Boots, Field Jackets, sleeping bag, unit patches, a radio etc. that are needed by you for in the field, and during training. Don’t forget, a weapon, ammo, cleaning kit etc.. These items don’t have to be bought on day one, but you will need to acquire them as soon as possible.

Contact us through our Contact Page and let us know your intentions or ask questions. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Come to three Field Training Exercises (FTX) to show your commitment. Recruits may be asked to obtain a concealed carry permit as further proof of his or her ability to lawfully possess a firearm. A background check may be performed to ensure you are in fact a lawful citizen.

Membership is open to any person of good moral character who desires to join the Militia, and who is not any of the following;

1. A fugitive from justice
2. An alien illegally in the United States
3. A convicted felon (If you have expunged felonies and your rights restored, let us know)
4. A user of any unlawful drugs
5. Adjudicated mental defective

Failure to comply with these is grounds for immediate expulsion by your unit leader.

No, we are NOT Anti-Government. Our organization supports local and state government along with local and state law enforcement. Our mission is to help our communities in time of need and to maintain the rule of law and to defend the Constitution of the United States, the State of Alabama, and the Bill of Rights.
