WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
With only 276 members on the Facebook WRAM 'Page,' if everybody there invited all of their friends and they enlisted, we'd have 118,910 members! Just think how we could grow our membership if everybody on the MAIN WRAM website were to join us and do the same. If you have a Facebook profile and you haven't found the page, CLICK HERE, then login. Next, please click on the 'Suggest Page To Friends' button on the upper right to invite them. Once you click on it, give it a few moments to load your friends' profiles, then you can invite all of them. Each time you invite 50 friends, let the page reload and invite 50 more until you have invited them all. It won't take long to do.
We're not asking you to spend a lot of time on Fakebook, just help us recruit from the page we have there. That is the purpose of the page, nothing else. You will also notice once you are on the page, that we have an RSS feed installed which feeds discussions from the main website.
Thank You all!
ok, hopefully that will help
We've now got over 700 members on our Facebook 'Page' now, and our membership is consistently growing. But we must continue to to what we've been doing to get more people aboard.
Member ship is not as Important as Honesty,Loyalty, trust and Morality! You may be opening a can of worms doing it this way of this you can verily be assured! Remember the spoken words; "build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door!" It needs to be applied here or your only asking for well I'll let you answer this question?
Your problem is that you can only see the negatives. I get so sick and tire of naysayers, yourself included. You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem, and from my perspective, you fit the latter category. The trolls we get are a small percentage of the whole & they can be dealt with, with a click of the button. If you can't do anything but be negative, you can be taken care of with the click of a button also.

Regulator, love the idea. The Facebook friends I have are mostly Family and highly unlikely to join. They are more likely to reject me as some "Veteran gone extremist nutcase."
I am currently working on forming a unit, starting with a neighbor who reached out on the USM site and maybe two others very near by. We shall see. I need more than keyboard commandos and in honesty as a Logistics unit we need to be as ready to fill sandbags and bear stretchers as lock and load. I see a lot of emphasis on Squad-level Fireteam training and ops, pretty much nothing on what to do the month after BOB got grabbed, and less on what happens to those the field medic has patched up.
Not against using what electronic means available to increase numbers, but I have to look at who I'd be inviting. Old fashioned face-to-face for me for now. Wish you luck though.
Amen to that fidsquid. Curious though, think maybe it might be a good idea to take a "ready head count", make it public to our fearless leaders?
Magnus, so far I've seen stuff on a forum here from last year Community Service Group I believe, and over on USM, things were mentioned like 2010, then died out. I put out a post over there (USM) to get folks thinking, but no concrete responses.
I'd like to put together a Logistics unit, dealing with all you mentioned and then some. It's not like such a unit would have a hard time trying out procedures with Florida hosting hurricanes and Georgia good at having big wildfires. I think a unit like that, showing up to work on sandbags, or just set up rest stations for firefighters taking pressure off Red Cross, would leave local folks with a good impression of militia as neighbors and helpers.
I'm starting off with what little I have, and with dumpster diver ingenuity I can make. We'll see how far I can take it before the next Tropical Storm comes calling.
What are you talking about and is this comment for me?
