Interior-based Militia Unit Regroups, Invites Others to Training Rendezvous

The Central Alaska Militia hosted a rendezvous over the weekend at a remote site near Delta Junction for members of other militia groups from around the state. The leader of the local militia says the groups that showed up for the weekend training event are not associated with the now-defunct Alaska Peacekeepers Militia, the Fairbanks-based group that disbanded after its leader, Francis Schaeffer Cox, was sentenced to 26 years in prison earlier this year for plotting to murder federal and state judges and law enforcement agents. KUAC’s Tim Ellis talked with militia members at their encampment, and has this report.
