The Commander of the Nevada Light Foot Militia is Jason Peters of Spring Creek (Elko area).

A significant southern Nevada Light Foot Militia member is Jeromy Rose (Las Vegas).

Rocky Pastorino, III%er of Reno, is a prominent militia organizer.

There are a large number of militia in the Elko and Winnemucca areas including Peters, mentioned above (Spring Creek/Elko), Gabe Mercado, Josh Schmitt and Rhiannon Hornbarger.  There is also a women’s auxilliary group. Here is III% Militia members Gabe Mercado (Winnemucca) (note the Battle Born Nevada symbol with Boogaloo and Igloo background).

Another is Josh Schmitt (Winnemucca).

Rhiannon Hornbarger (III% Militia, Winnemucca) is another.

Here is the women’s auxilliary group, the Northern Nevada Light Foot Patriots Liberty Belles including Lisa Peters (Spring Creek, Elko area).

Here is a group photo of the militia just described:
