For those Phalanx members who were unable to attend, a meeting of the ShieldWall Phalanx followed the normal ShieldWall Network meeting in central Arkansas on December 2nd. Two new ShieldWall Phalanx members were administered their oaths and given their patches. The Phalanx voted to keep both style of shields, the round and rectangular, for different complimentary tactical uses, and to adopt American Woodland Camouflage BDUs as the official pants of the ShieldWall Phalanx uniform. Boots, gloves, helmets, and other gear were discussed, exhibited, and compared. Twenty Phalanx members will now be completely equipped. The next training date and site for the Phalanx was voted on and agreed to, as well as the tactical exercises which will be learned.
