WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
After reading some post on from other groups, I started to wonder about family's! Now,as a single guy,I don't have a family to consider on such things as what I buy as far as gear, or the time that i spend away from my loved ones, but a lot of you guys do! Do they agree with and understand what you are doing,and why you are doing it,would they like to come out and see what we are doing, maybe even participate? and do you think that would make them understand more? Do you think getting the spouses together is a good thing!
I can't get my extended family to involve themselves in preparedness, much less paramilitary training. They know that I take firearms classes as often as I can (only because they wonder why I don't show up to some family events- I'm training).
Frankly, it's none of their business. My wife knows I train; and has seen some (not all) of my gear. Other than that it's NDBBM.
Rachel, welcome to the board. Feel free to introduce yourself, and participate in any way with which you feel comfortable (including participating in a training event).
see what some groups in Michagan have done with their training some family friendly training others for those more advanced so to speak
The family should be involved and informed on the militia There many groups through out the country who are doing just that!!
The wives who can't,or don't want to participate in the actual field activities can form up a ladies auxillary,and run the mess duties,get involved with any support for the group,no matter how well you are trained,you need support or you will not be efficient in the field.
The Lightfoots are doing this,and it seems to be working well.
Yes, their auxillary group is going to be preparing meals for their training on the 11/12th. That is a good idea. I knew that but forgot. Good idea.
Also we could hire you and Ed to come and cook for us!!!LOL
No hireing to it Mickie.Once the first N.E.Oregon 58th Lightfoots MMU is set up,we will be working at forming these units throughout the western states.A lot of work,but it is workeable!
Just takes time and planning!
We would love to cook for you if we could afford the trip!!
By the way,Glenn in Moline Ca. has a few mess trailers set up and running,so we have help!
I have all the faith in the world with you guys Mickie!
You are working hard,and working on the organization! Before you know it,you will have a great group in place.
I am darn proud of all of you!!
