The 2nd Infantry Regiment, California State Militia began in 2012 when 3 members (Jackson, Clayton, and Hernandez) decided to form, out of a need for standardized training and a shift in goals, to support our state and provide standards that were easy to identify.
The formation of the 2nd Infantry Regiment is well documented and archived historically to prevent a misunderstanding from the public regarding our mission, goals, and leadership.
The founders of the 2nd Infantry Regiment developed defined written standards of training, ByLaws, and an overall focus on the safety and protection of our communities rather than political statements and actions.
There are several "unorganized" Militias in CA. They operate their own self-determined rules and regulations.
Membership in the California State Militia, 2nd Infantry Regiment is open to all citizens regardless of race, sex, religion, or political affiliation.
Units NOT open to public membership and/or which are organized for any purpose other than the support of Constitutional principals and community service may be considered private armies and are NOT to be confused with the Constitutional "unorganized" militia.
As a practical matter, we allow only citizens of good character in the militia.
We are not "For Hire", and will not participate in a "Call to Arms" but can respond and assist in community disasters and strife if requested or needed in our state.
All who advocate criminal activity, terrorism, revolution, or a change from our republican form of government are not accepted in our organization.
Our members should understand the duties and obligations of both citizens and government under our Constitution.
Joining the California State Militia is entirely voluntary and as such our members have the right to resign at any time.
