I'm not sure about naming them regiments though...
According to Dictionary.com:
Regiment Military. a unit of ground forces, consisting of two or more battalions or battle groups, a headquarters unit, and certain supporting units.
Battalions - Military. a ground force unit composed of a headquarters and two or more companies or similar units.
Company - Military. a. the smallest body of troops, consisting of a headquarters and two or three platoons.
Platoon - military unit consisting of two or more squads or sections and a headquarters.
If anything, the Website becomes the Regiment, and then the States become Battalions, but the companies would fall under that somehow, and then platoons? squads?
I'd rather do it like the 501st does, with a Spartan Legion and State Garrisons/Outposts and Garrison Squads. It just seems more appropriate to me?

Here's the Halo Wiki article for UNSC Marine Corps organization, and here's the one on Hierarchy for (real-world) Modern Armies

Expeditionary Force
No. of subordinate units — 2+ Divisions
Unit leader — unknown (the USMC Expeditionary Force is under the command of a lieutenant general)
Identification Scheme — Designated with a number, all Expeditionary Forces in the UNSC are on the same number system. (eg- 9th Marine Expeditionary Force))

Division
No. of subordinate units — 2+ Regiments
Unit leader — unknown (USMC divisions are under the command of a major general)
Identification Scheme — Designated with a number, all Divisions in the UNSC are on the same number system. (eg- 21st Marine Division, 105th ODST Division)

Regiment
No. of subordinate units — 2+ Battalions
Unit leader — unknown (USMC regiments are under the command of a colonel)
Identification Scheme — Designated with a number, all Regiments in the UNSC are on the same number system. (eg- 77th Marine Regiment, 506th Tank Regiment)

Battalion
No. of subordinate units — 2+ Companies

Squad

Fireteam, Combat Team
No. of subordinate units — N/A
Unit leader — Corporal-Staff Sergeant
Identification Scheme — Designated with a letter from the phonetic alphabet within a squad, (eg- Combat Team Alpha, Fireteam Charlie)


========================


501st garrisons include multiple states/countries (Star Garrison = Texas, Oklahoma, Lousiana, & Arkansas) or parts of states/countries (California is broken into 3: northern, central, and southern). Would we want to break up the US into the regions (northeast/new england, southeast, midwest, southwest and west) for garrisons then states for battalions and so on ... or just states=garrisons? And remember, we don't necessarily just have Spartans, some people may have just made ODSTs, Marines, etc.

The Expeditionary Force caught my eye - (I was part of an AEF to Bahrain in '97-98). What if we designate cons as EFs? For instance, Wiz Con Chicago is in June. Everyone attending that could be part of the 608th EF. 6 - for June, 08 - for 2008. Any numbering system would work, really. Just an idea, gives it a sort of TDY/military feel. At home, you're the XXXXXXX regiment, but at the con, you're XXXth EF. Patches would be pretty cool too.

Edit to add:
I was inspired to make a TX banner:

I got a four day weekend after my last three exams, so I'll try to whip up some Virginia bannners.

Didn't someone say they needed South Carolina? I'll try to make one of those too.
