There is one thing that needs to be made clear right up front……
If you are wanting to join the Last Patrol so that you can just play soldier, then this is not a group for you. The Last Patrol is a living history group. This means that we are devoted to getting it right. The uniforms, the language, equipment, hair styles, eyeglasses, weapons…..you name it. It is important that the era we portray is correct and accurate. History is just that, history. No artistic liberties, no Hollywood bullshit, no toy soldiers. If you are up to that challenge, then this is the group for you, proceed to the next step…….

Please give your name, address, age, and reliable contact information. It would be great if you would note any military experience you may have.
You will be contacted by a member of the group and informed about the next meeting and invited to attend. Please come on over to the meeting and visit with us. Ask questions, check us out and make sure this is something you want to do. Accumulating the equipment needed to participate can represent a sizable monetary commitment, please be sure before you commit to the group that this is something you are willing to do. While you are checking us out, we will be doing the same to you. We will be asking you questions. This is important so that we all get to know each other at the onset to your signing up.
SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OUR GROUP
We are currently applying for our corporate charter and 501c3 nonprofit status. Once this is done, we will be actively seeking donations and grants to further develop the teams high value assets.
Active duty or prior military service is not a requirement. While it is a plus, it is by no means necessary. It just makes it easier to understand some of what is going on.
