Mission Statement:

In principle we, the members of the Southern California State Militia, stand to promote,uphold and defend the constitutional guarantees as documented and expressed to the people in the California State Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.

We stand to promote and defend the principles of just government bequeathed to us by our forefathers to ensure that all citizens regardless of race, color, religion, sex or natural origin retain those inalienable rights and protections established by our founding fathers.

We acknowledge a responsibility and exercise our rights as established in the Constitution of the United States to maintain our militia and train our members in the many disciplines necessary to the function of the militia both as a whole and to the members individually.

We acknowledge a responsibility to educate our members in areas of history, law and principles of a Republican government as compiled in the experience and records of our forefathers. The SCSM does not advocate overt acts of violence and/or aggression. It remains a defense oriented organization.

Like other constitutional militia organizations, the SCSM recognizes that good government, founded and implemented consistent with Constitutional tenets is not only a blessing, but essential to the function and preservation of a free society.

 Core Values

These Values define who we are, what we do, and what we stand for. Actions counter to our Values weaken the Militia, and our readiness. By not living up to our Values you may discredit yourself, and can lead those we serve to question our values or even possible dismissal from the Militia. We must never accept actions inconsistent with the below Values.

1. Loyalty. Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the California Constitution, your unit and other militia members.
2. Duty. Fulfill your Obligations- Accept responsibility for your own actions and those entrusted to your care. Find opportunities to improve oneself for the good of the group.
3. Respect. Treat people as they should be treated- how we consider others reflects upon each of us, both personally and as a professional organization 4. Selfless Service.Put the welfare of the Nation, the Army, and your subordinates before your own-Selfless service leads to organizational teamwork and encompasses discipline, self-control and faith in the system 5. Honor. Live up to all the Southern California State Militia Values
6. Integrity. Do what’s right, legally and morally-Be willing to do what is right even when no one is looking.
It is our “moral compass” an inner voice.

                                                        UNIFORM

You are welcome to wear whatever you like the following is only a guideline or a preferred uniform. Many may have uniforms already.

       

Uniform & Gear ,Why ACU? works best in our So.Cal environment       

UNIFORM
Every member is asked to have a Militia Service Uniform (MSU). This uniform is worn for all public appearances in the course of duties for The SCSM. The official camo pattern for all MSUs is ACU
The MCU or Militia Combat Uniform is worn for any combat field operations.
DO NOT WASH YOUR UNIFORM WITH REGULAR LAUNDRY DETERGENT! EVER!
Most standard commercial detergents use “UV Brighteners” which permanently bond with fabrics. At night, you will light up like a Christmas Tree when viewed under IR vision devices. Instead, use detergents specifically made for hunting apparel. Double check to make sure they contain no brighteners. Any sporting goods store will stock this.
Boots – take extra time to find a good quality pair of boots that fit your feet well. It is strongly recommended that you NOT skimp on this investment. Approved boot colors are Tan, Coyote, Brown only.
As an all-volunteer organization, we understand members do not have unlimited funds. So, obtain your gear as you are able to do so. Again, check with your Company commanders for what you will need and in the order you should acquire it.

Here is the standard MSU configuration with patch and name tape placement:

Patches are on order so let me know ASAP who wants patches as limited number are available the cost per patch is $10.00.

This is how patches will look.


Also for custom name tapes for $1.50 great deal. go to ” http://www.ebay.com/itm/260975228903?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_…

Here is a great web site for uniform, total uniform for $40 and boots for $19
