Texas Republic Militia
Welcome To The Texas Republic Militia Website!COMMANDThe Texas Republic Militia is an organization that operates under a command structure, the command structure will be a series of appointed persons to lead and assist with the operations of a well structured paramilitary group. The command structure will be responsible for scheduling training excersices (FTX) and many other duties appointed to the team.WHO CAN JOINWe welcome all ages,however in order to own a handgun you must be over the age ao 21 or be under the supervision of an adult, never convicted of a felony, never adjudicated mentally deficient, and not a member of a hate group to be eligible to volunteer. TRAININGTraining is a vital part of our operations and occurs continuously. The training atmosphere is professional and very skill focused with emphasis on learning and executing skills correctly, rather than on rigourous physical resistance type training. All training is conducted with safety in mind. While we do attempt to make it as real as possible, safety is foremost. Some of the skills we specialize in include:Land Navigation (Map, Compass, and GPS)Radio Communication / Hand SignalsFirst Aid / CPRRoad Clearing / Disaster ReliefFirearm SafetyMarksmanshipCQB (Close Quarters Battle)Self Defense (Armed/Unarmed)All Weather SurvivalCBRN Preparedness (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear)Civil Unrest / Rioting PreparednessSearch and Rescueand many othersTraining generally occurs one Saturday a month with a 2-day field exercise conducted quarterly, however not all training takes place in the field. Often we will have medical classes taught by certified Doctors or RN's, including our CPR training which is conducted by the American Heart Association. Our training standards are broken into three progressive skill levels which are guidelines for each individual. When a skill is covered at training, you will receive a go, no-go evaluation. If you show that you have learned the skill, your training card will be signed by your team leader. We simply ask that you do what you can, when you can.ROLE OF THE MILITIAToday's militia has a wide spectrum of missions, from disaster relief to terrorism prevention. The slogan echoed now is "State Defense and Community Service." One role of the militia is defense of the state from terrorism or invasion. Other roles include disaster relief, search and rescue, emergency preparedness education and serving the community. We can serve our communities through aid programs like Harvesters, Habitat for Humanity, Project Warmth, Blood Drives as well as raising money for charities benefitting military veterans, cancer research, or volunteering at local food pantries and shelters. Given that the militia is primarily defensive in nature, it is natural that much of its resources should be aimed at bettering the communities from which it is derived.THE MILITIA AND YOUThe biggest challenge for militias' today is the lack of people involved. The population today is much bigger than in 1776 and the role of the militia has been expanded tremendously. Because of this, the militia today is in need of more dedicated men and women in order to fulfill its role. With the current threat of terrorism, our unprotected borders, and the Armed Forces sent abroad, the nation is more vulnerable than ever before. You may be saying, "what can I do?" or "I don't have any training for that!" We understand. The militia is unlike anything you've probably ever experienced. It requires you to ask more of yourself, to learn new skills, and to take the path less traveled. It requires courage, integrity, and strength of character. In the militia you will be charged with defending your fellow man, helping those in need, facing disaster and taking a stand when it is much easier to do nothing.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
