The Missouri Militia is a private, non-profit civilian defense organization in the state of Missouri, organized with the intent to act as the state defense force, as there is currently no state defense force for the state of Missouri.[1] Its members have been active in disaster relief after the 2011 Joplin tornado.[2]

The Missouri Militia is distinct from the state's National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities (all state National Guard units can be federalized under the National Defense Act of 1933 with the creation of the National Guard of the United States). The federal government recognizes state defense forces under 32 U.S.C. § 109, which provides that state defense forces as a whole may not be called, ordered, or drafted into the armed forces of the United States, thus preserving their separation from the National Guard. However, under the same law, individual members serving in the state defense force are not exempt from service in the armed forces. But, under 32 USC § 109(e) "A person may not become a member of a defense force . . . if he is a member of a reserve component of the armed forces."

The Missouri Militia is a volunteer organization formed to train and act as a reserve component to the Missouri National Guard.

The intent of the Missouri Militia is to act as the State Defense Force (SDF), as there is currently no SDF for Missouri.  The militia is classified as a civilian volunteer organization and therefore will carry out operations in absence of orders as dictated by necessity during a crisis. All Missouri Militia personnel will conduct themselves with professionalism, integrity and the utmost respect for others at all times.

Missouri law makes provisions for the Militia in the Missouri Revised Statutes, Title V Chapter 41: Military Forces – Sections 41.030, 41.050, 41.060, 41.070, 41.720
Today’s militia has a wide spectrum of missions, from disaster relief to terrorism prevention. The slogan echoed now is “State Defense and Community Service.” One role of the militia is defense of the state from terrorism or invasion. Other roles include disaster relief, search and rescue, emergency preparedness education and serving the community.

We can serve our communities through aid programs like Harvesters, Habitat for Humanity, Project Warmth, Blood Drives as well as raising money for charities  benefitting military veterans, cancer research, or volunteering at local food pantries and shelters. Given that the militia is primarily defensive in nature, it is natural that much of its resources should be aimed at bettering the communities from which it is derived.

Our military is deployed around the world, and here at home the threat of foreign and domestic terrorist acts is demonstrably real, as we have learned with events like the Oklahoma City bombing and the World Trade Center attacks. Modern life has created a situation where deadly chemicals and hazardous materials are manufactured, stored, and transported in our cities and towns and throughout the countryside, which present threats weather intentionally or accidentally unleashed on the public.

In addition to man made threats, increasingly volatile weather patterns and the natural world itself confront us with disaster on a regular basis: the Joplin tornado is a recent example, and with the possibility of a major seismic event on the New Madrid fault looming always in the background, a strong case to be prepared for large scale disasters is not hard to make. Our people are more vulnerable than ever before.
