A New Idea for a New Day

Throughout the Patriot Community there are groups that can generally be categorized in one of three ways: survivalists, preppers, and militia. While each of these types of groups have their strengths, in 2009 an entirely new approach was developed to organize into groups that concentrated on all aspects - living off the land, preparing our families, and offering a defense to protect what we have built.

Initially formed under ORC S5923 (D) as a small unorganized militia to protect ourselves from civil unrest or other crisis where the rule of law may break down, the Frontiersmen quickly expanded. With the addition of units throughout Ohio and then other states, the Frontiersmen developed into a national, family-focused civil defense network to support & defend all our members in any situation that may affect their families, homes, or their communities.

Below is an overview of our evolution; highlights of this journey; a brief look into how a small group in NE Ohio transformed into the Frontiersmen we see today.
