Thank you for taking the time to consider joining the 1st Missouri Volunteer Infantry (1stMoV), we are a Militia that takes great pride in offering quality training in a family friendly environment.

Let’s start with a couple of questions we ask every recruit;

1.Are you a Missouri resident?If you answered yes, then please continue on we would love to hear more.

2.Do you have any felony convictions, or domestic violence convictions?

If you answered no, then you may be on your way to the exciting next steps to joining.

As a recruit with the 1stMoV you will start your training in our Basic Training team. While conducting your Basic Training you may be asked to attend trainings outside your Battalion area but most trainings will be conducted close to your location.

During your first six months you will be on probation and required to attend a minimum of one training per month (usually more will be offered and you are encouraged to attend everything during this time). You should be able to complete all required Basic Training within this time and be assigned to an operational team if all conditions are satisfactorily met.

Attendance is paramount, if just one recruit misses a training it could make everyone fall behind.

Once assigned to an operational team you will continue on with more advanced training in fields like:

Land Navigation
Radio Communications
Tactical/Emergency Medicine
Leadership skills
Defensive Marksmanship

Not everyone is cut out to be a front line soldier, if you don’t want to do that but still want to help there are plenty of other things you can do. Everyone has a place if you have the desire to attend trainings and learn.

If all above sounds like something you would want to do then don’t hesitate to reach out, send us a message and someone will get back in touch with you.
