    The Alabama Militia is distinct from the Alabama State Defense Force (Alabama State Militia) in that it is not recognized as part of the organized militia by the government of Alabama, but is rather privately organized by private citizens as an unorganized militia. Our Area of Operation is Madison County and the surrounding counties including Dekalb and Cullman Counties..

  • What is a Prepsteader?

    Someone who combines prepping and homesteading may be a Prepsteader. Why focus on one or the other when you can learn more. Joining the Alabama Militia doesnt mean you are a militant. We do so much more and have a lot more to learn.

  • What does the Alabama Militia do?

    The Alabama Militia was formed to support the Constitutions of the United States an Alabama. Our purpose is to serve, aid, and protect our families and communities. We train for more than Military purposed. We share information and training with each other about medical, food storage, CERT missions, and much more. Contact us and find out more.

We believe that Freedom is worthless without Responsibility.  We can become a better person by seeking higher morals, by providing for your family, by training and improving your skills, and to assist others in times of need. In the Military, there is a term called RHIP. Rank Has Its Privileges. In the Alabama Militia, we have changed that from RHIP to RHIR. Rank Has Its Responsibilities. 

We believe that sharing and teaching these values will strengthen our communities to survive any calamity.

We do have some rules for those that wish to join.
