Medal Militia is the premier Metallica tribute in Florida. Founded in late 2012 by lead guitarist James Obrien while stationed at Mayport Naval Station. The current lineup would not fully come together until the summer of 2015, and although the lineup has changed a few times since, it has come full circle back to what it is now: Retired Navy Chief James Obrien, lead guitar and founding member, Retired Navy Chief Jim Pyle lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Patriot Troy Taylor bass guitar, and backing vocals and Acting Petty Officer Kyle Coe drums.
