Oath Keepers is instructing its 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces “A Team” (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and eventually to assist in forming and training town and county militias (established by official act of town and county elected representatives). We want our chapters to organize themselves as a working model that we can then take to other veterans organizations, such as the VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc. in each town and help them establish such teams within their already existing veterans halls. And likewise, to serve as a model and training cadre to help churches, neighborhood watches, and any other civic organization organize.
Of course we all know what (and who) they mean by “Civilization Preservation” Teams. When you’re talking to your own kind, the dog whistles are hardly needed. Oh, and BTW, when they talk about “Precision Rifle Shooting” they mean snipers.
These guys are so waiting for Civil War V2 to come around. They have laid out their organizational structure, and it’s very close to what you would have in any good resistance / counter-goverment force…
So far,we plan to have the following in each Operational “Field” Team:
Two Communication Experts
Two medical experts (with a special focus on grid-down emergency medical and wilderness medicine)
Two Engineers To assist with fuel, shelter, emergency power, clean water, sewage, etc. build bridges, clear roads, construction, facilitate field distribution of supply and logistics, etc.
Two Strategic Food Reserve (SFR) specialists (who focus on the critical need for food reserves for the whole team, dependents, and especially for the community and who distribute food aid in the field).
Four to Six “Scouts.”
All Scouts will train extensively in tracking, land navigation, search and rescue, reconnaissance and observation, precision rifle shooting, wilderness survival and other “bush skills,” camouflage, small unit tactics, and patrolling (and then will serve as a teaching cadre to cross-train all other team members in the basics of all of those skills). But within each Scout sub-team will be, ideally:
a. Two tracking experts
b. two precision shooting experts
c. Two close combat and small unit tactics experts
Those are the operational specialties and sub-teams within each field team at this time. Each specialty will train in-depth and become true experts in those sub-category skills.
Of course they are just doing this to help out in the case of natural disasters like a hurricane, that’s why…
Like SF, all Oath Keepers will be expected to learn light infantry skills. They will all be encouraged to attend an Appleseed Rifle Program and shoot to “Rifleman” standards. Just as the Marines say that every Marine is a Rifleman (even the cooks) so will every Oath Keeper be a rifleman. After learning solid rifle marksmanship, they will learn individual movement and tactics, then buddy team, fire-team, and squad movement and tactics (shoot, move, communicate). All of you infantry veterans need to step up and teach these skills to everyone else. So, it is not just the Scouts who will learn those skills - everyone on a field team will learn them, and even the support team members should at least train in the basics so they can defend themselves.
Scary scary stuff. Of course since every Mosque is nothing more than a terrorist training center in the view of the RWNJs, I guess that this makes sense.
