The article that was in the American Legion mag a few months ago was an awesome way to showcase a SDF. As Vetrans Day is approaching, we HONOR those brave men and women that have put themselves in harms way.

Some way to thank the SDF soldier and increase awareness is a great idea

Re: New to the Michigan Volunteer Defense Force

To my fellow Veterans, I fould the posts in the SDF forum informative. I retired, after 20 years, from the US Army Reserve back in December 2007.

A sub group would be a good Idea - anything to help get the word out. There is a State Guard Assocation, it covers a lot of topics and does work to help move the SDFs forward, Currently they offer the Military Emergency Management Skills badge (MEMS) and it is a very good online and practical course...

Can you tell us more about MI defense force? each state is different, and the missions are all different. I agree, the public does not know who we are, and that also goes for the current Military, that is why I hope to inform people and maybe get some vets to join.. I'd love to have some good NCOs...

I am the wrong person to ask about Troop A, as I am the Engineeer Ops NCO.. But I would doubt the state offers any assistance to them, my bet would be that the horses are owned by the troop members. Historically we do not recieve that kind of assistance from the state, again... I am not in the Calva...
