It was a very easy test when I took it (as the AEPSM) in 1982.

Heck, mine's so old it doesn't even have Gen. Yeager's name on it.

Not every state has a militia. I'm going to count the NG because in the event of something like this happening the NG will be federalized.

Every state has some sort of law allowing them to draft people into the state militia, or at least places men of certain ages (varies) into the "unorganized militia".  This is different from State Defense Forces.

That's a pretty bold statement. Now either back it up or take it back.

About 10 years ago as part of a strong interest in SDFs that I had at the time, I actually went through the militia laws of every state looking at this very topic and every single one (just about all were available by internet at the time) had some sort of statement saying that all men ages X to X were part of the militia of that state.  Usually, this was described as the "unorganized militia" and that the Governor had the authority to call the unorganized militia into service under various conditions.  This was separate from the clauses authorizing the state to have a National Guard and the authority (in almost every state) to organize an SDF or Naval Militia if they wanted to as part of the "organized" militia. 

If anyone chooses to dispute this, they can look it up if they want, but its a basic part of every state law and is related to the federal law cited earlier (being part of the "militia" is basically how the federal government used to draft people -- because you were in the militia, you could be called into service). 

This part of my statement was not crazy or extreme, just basic law.  The part about "drafting" CAP using that authority was the nutso part, but technically feasible.
My state, Delaware has no such power currently granted in its legal code or constitution. In fact, it specifies that the state militia is the National Guard and the separate State Defense Force (inactive since WWII) is volunteer. No other militia, organized or otherwise is mentioned.

That said... this thread has beaten the horse long enough.  Locked.

Nothing bold about it.

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

Refers to the US National Guard, not a state militia as was referenced. It's a bold statement due to that in the event there was a conflict that required a major upping in manpower the regular componets will get the bodies before the reserves and the guard. 

I checked Ca code and see nothing there about being drafted into the SDF there.  Which ironically being a member of the SDF doesn't exempt from being "drafted" into the US military.

So therefore the challenge remains to cite that one can be drafted into a state military force.

One doesnít get drafted into the militia in California. One is already in it if the membership requirements are met. Literally millions have been in it without even knowing it existed.

(Reminds me - I want my California discharge certificate from the militia. I did my time).

If that is the case then Ca owes me 20 years of compensation.

Thereís the rub. You were in the unorganized militia. So unorganized that they didnít have any fiscal operation.

Be advised that flights to and from little regional airports can be significantly more expensive that big  airports. F'rinstance, it costs more to fly from Detroit to Alpena, Michigan than it costs to fly from San Diego to Detroit. Choose your itinerary carefully.

Haven't heard a thing from CAP.  You would think that AFAMs would get cancelled.

The CG Aux is completely shut down except for stuff done from your own home -- apparently on the theory that even though there are many activities conducted that have no cost to the Coast Guard they are worried that if someone is hurt or causes someone to get hurt that the Coast Guard might then have to pay for that.
Yup.  I even volunteered to do the existing scheduled patrols as unfunded and they told me due to insurance, they were still off.

How you get there is entirely up to you.
