The Texas Militia is actually the different departments of the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard and the Texas Guard. They answer to the Governor of the state of Texas.Theres 2 main militias in Texas that ive seen.
The Texas State Militia & the Texas Militia. If you go to their webpages you can see they are completely different on the requirements for its memebers. One seems more organized & the other...not so much.
They have a clear chain of command and specific rules and instruction as to what they can and can't do.
When I Googled Texas State Militia, it redirected me to the Texas Militia, so I assume they are the same?
But these units are not a group of home-grown beer swilling rednecks either. They serve a legitimate purpose, and are structured, organized, equipped, and have a chain of command all the way to the governor.
