Origins of Unorganized Militia – Propaganda Corps in Defense of the 2nd Amendment
Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- The Unorganized Militia, by Federal Code, is made up of all able bodied males between the ages of 17 and 45. In reality, it encompasses anyone and everyone who is willing to do their part as American Citizens.
Talking to Glen Caroline, Director of NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Division, I once made the joke that gun bloggers were the Propaganda Corps of the Unorganized Militia and an idea was born.
I designed a logo and some patches to hand out to those who attended and the original UMPC patch was born. It proved so popular that other bloggers and non-bloggers were asking for it and other designs.
Since then I have included new colors, stickers and lapel pins along with the UM Infantry, Marksman and Sniper patches. The blogger Kent McManigal offered the design of his ‘Times Up’ flag for use as a patch as well.
These patches have proven to be a good way to start a conversation as people ask what they stand for as well as a way to show your pride and dedication to preserving our Rights as Americans. If you would like to display one yourself, they are available through Days of Our Trailers.
The only requirement to become a ‘member’ is a dedication to do everything you can to maintain our Rights as they were originally intended when our great nation was founded.– Roy Kubicek AKA Thirdpower Days of Our Trailers
