THE LIGHT FOOT MILITIA STANDARD UNIFORM SHALL BE THE MILITARY-STYLE COMBAT UNIFORM IN WOODLAND, DESERT, MULTI-CAM OR A-TACS CAMO PATTERN. WHEN YOUR UNIT CHOOSES ITS UNIFORM CAMO PATTERN, MAKE SURE IT’S FOR THESE THREE REASONS…
– The color scheme matches your AO (area of operations).
– They are plentiful at surplus stores, gun shows and on-line sellers such as E-Bay.
– The U.S. Army and National Guard who wore the ACU digital camo pattern, are now switching to the “MultiCam”-like uniform, so make sure you wear our Civil Flag patch and Spartan Helmet/ Crossed Swords patch to delineate you from active duty military.
Roughly half our members are not ex-mil and we don’t want any “stolen valor” accusations.
You should try to acquire 2 sets of BDU’s (one to wear, one in your pack) and an M-65 Field Jacket w/ liner (or similar).
NOTE: The standard uniform is not required for militia participation. If you have other military or hunter camouflage clothing, that’s fine. But please understand that for unit cohesion, “esprit de corps” and to put forward a professional image to the public, you should try to acquire at least one set of camouflage BDU’s as soon as you are able.
Headgear – Privates, Corporals and Sergeants will wear the GI “Boonie Hat” in woodland. All Officers will wear the Patrol Cap. Combat is confusing enough being able to readily distinguish officers (without being overly obvious to the enemy) is of the utmost importance. (In the field on patrol, officers may opt for a boonie for its ability to break up your outline and hide you from enemy observation.)
Patches and Insignia – Light Foot militiamen shall wear on their right upper shoulder the US Civil Flag (reverse).
This signifies our status as a civilian militia organization, not active duty military. In your shirtpocket, carry a subdued (green or tan) US Civil Flag patch when called into active duty, or “in the field” (i.e. switch them out when TSHTF). One each per BDU shirt or jacket.
Over the right breast pocket shall be the militiaman’s last name tape. And over the left pocket will be the “MILITIA” tape. (Order one of each for your BDU shirt and your LBV (if you have velcro areas for such). Order in your uniform camo color, OD green or tan w/ black lettering.)
Rank insignia shall be worn on both collar tabs (BDU style) or center chest (new uniform style). Ranks below 1st Sgt are issued by battalion command All command officers are voted on by the battalion membership.
