poolee dealyo? They all look old.
Might be like that IDF deal where civilians go and support the rear so the real GIs can go to the front.

Thank God they are led by three-star general "Commander Wang."



I wonder if you get a free set of Ginzu knives when you join...

How can they wear Army name tapes and 40th HQ unit patches and get away with it?

Their website says:

The USAFVR is an unincorporated and nonprofit organization authorized by the state of California . Our mission is to support the California National Guard in this homeland defense and homeland security mission.

When the Gov. makes a militia its ok, when normal everyday folks band together they CALL it a militia and that's bad.I guess it all depends on who you're workin for.

I doubt it. If they are, the state AG should be aware of them.

If they are not legit, the state AG should definately be aware of them. You might want to drop a dime.

Really weird. I didn't know about the CSMR until I got out of the regulars and joined the guard, so I'm sure there is all kinds of stuff out there that is a mystery to me. Things get more and more surreal as you crawl into the catacombs of authorized and semi authorized part time support organizations. It still kind of freaks me out to see people walking around in ACUs with "CALIFORNIA" in the place of "U.S. ARMY" on their name tapes.

At least we're a part of the state, as opposed to these guys who are wearing US Army tapes and have NO ties to any military...strange.

I'm not knocking it, I'm just saying that I did a double take when I saw the "CALIFORNIA" name tape. These guys however seem to have only recently been formed. Their website seems to have been written by someone without a strong grasp of English. I wonder if they go to any semblance of basic training.

I remember dealing with the NY Guard once, I guess an equivilant of the group you are with Capo, from what I could tell they were mostly retired individuals who still wanted to help out. I'm not sure what they actually did but I guess they were there to help us get ready to head down to NYC to do a security mission. The only issue I had with them was this one female who was rocking the CIB, yeah I wanted to cut it right off of her uniform.

Those references to putting young people in the Guard, "consulting", and other aspects make me suspect it is a money making fraud. This probably should be pushed up to AG.

The site seems to be geared towards Chinese (the location in Monterey Park points that way too, if Chinese characters weren't enough of a hint).

The "authorized by the State of California" part reminds me of the scams run in L.A. The "authorization" is there, alright, but it may be the authorization to collect sales tax for all I know.

I'd notify the authorities. If it's legit, then it's legit, no harm done.

What about the goal I want to ACHIEVE?

On one page with the photo of Commander Wang they have:

Introduction:

(text)

History:

(more text)

Benefits:

(NOTHING MENTIONED!)

I have to wonder. If one of these guys walks up to me wearing a USAFVR helmet and uniform (?), can I tell him to F-off, or am I required to follow his orders?

If you REALLY want to be scared, type 1103 S. San Gabriel Blvd, #H., San Gabriel CA 91776 into the Google! search window!

This really IS something to look into.
