of some TV show. Dont call attention to yourself.
This is the best general response to the OP.
However, let me break the situation down a bit more to get a better understanding.
The idea here is the militia wearing camo. Most militias organize to help and protect their communities/state. They don't have the intent to be a
sleeper cell, but a clearly visible aspect of society. In this role, clothing to show grouping or identification is desired. In a natural disaster,
people can identify them as providing aid, assistance or security. They also would defend their areas against an invading foreign force, or in WROL,
bandits. In these cases, it is ideal to have a common or recognizable uniform. Should the government turn on it own people, presumably such prominent
groups would be targeted first. They would not likely have the chance to serve in their defensive role. So in this aspect, the uniform be it camo or
jeans and t-shirt, are irrelevant.
If the government were to turn on its own, then 'regular' folks trying to band together to defend themselves would not have the training or
equipment to be very effective against a standing army. In this case, any such sleeper cell militias would be used and they would not be uniformed,
unless a given uniform was tactically advantageous, such as in a wooded area, otherwise, they would blend in with the regular community and actions
taken by them would be deemed terrorism or sedition.
So generally speaking, camo use by militia provide a psychological boost to the individuals, and identification by the communities in which they
