Who We Are
We are fathers, mothers, sons and
daughters. We Range from children to grandparents. We are Patriots from all walks of life. We are veterans, first responders, doctors, lawyers, factory workers and everything in between. We are dedicated to each other and training to be prepared for social discord, natural disasters or anything else that may arise
Ever think of joining a well organized mutual assistance, prepper, or survival group? Our goal at the Michigan Home Guard is to combine it all into one fully functioning group and are always looking for motivated and dedicated patriots to join our cause. If you think you have the drive, desire, and interest to enhance your skills while belonging to an organization with a true sense of family, community and friendship then we might be the group for you!
For more information on the process, see our Get Involved section.
August 14th 2014 five patriots started a group for people that wanted to actively train. Bylaws and rules were put into place to guide the group and thus the Michigan Home Guard was formed.

When pledging to become a Michigan Home Guard member, you are expected to use the official pledge shown below, only changing the appropriate portions to fit your personalized information.
I, (your name) of (your county) County, formally request membership into The Michigan Home Guard. I understand that this request requires me to complete a minimum of two trainings in my 90 day probationary period. At such time, a vote will be taken for full membership. I also understand being a Michigan Home Guard member takes dedication and commitment. I embrace this obligation voluntarily and without any reservations.
(The date you filled this out/Pledge date)
During your probation
As a membership candidate who has pledged, you will have access to the website where all communications and information will be put out, to include events. You are expected to attend a minimum of two trainings within 90 days of your pledge date and complete weekly roll calls as prescribed by your chain of command.
After Probation Period
Once your 90 day probationary period is up, command will vote. Provided you have met or exceeded the minimum attendance requirement and have demonstrated the character and traits of quality Michigan Home Guard member, you will be accepted and receive your official MHG patch at the next training you attend. From that point on, you are required to make the weekly roll call and attend a minimum of two training’s per quarter to remain a member. If you do not meet those requirements, you will no longer be considered a member and may have to go through the probationary period again. Unlike many other groups, there are no “dues” to pay or “annual membership fees”.
Once becoming a member your journey has just began! There are always things to learn, ways to grow yourself and your family and things to do for the betterment of the group, the community, and our great state.
