United States Military
The United States Military was split into several military branches, some training branches and some combat branches. The combat branches were separated by requirements in strength and activity. The entire military was led by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The United States Military operates as a privately-funded force and was completely independent of funding from the United States Government.
Each branch had its own requirements for enlistment. The last known requirements were that the recruit should have required minimum strength, rank and damage inflicted with bare fists as follows:
|Airborne||2500||Lt Colonel***||550||Very High|
|Marine Corps||35,000||God of War*||20000||Extremely High|
Note: This table was comprised of one training branch and five combat branches - the last known active structure of US Military.
The Training Corps was the first step for all those wishing to enter the JCS led military. The Training Corps was a branch of the US Military dedicated to building the defense system of America. They took the raw, fresh recruits and turn them into the Marines of tomorrow. TC was the place where the new recruits make friends in game and also learn about the military of the United States. New recruits went through 1-7 days of boot camp, learning the ins and outs of the game. Upon completion of initial training, troops were transferred to the 3rd Division, Reserves. There they continued to polish their military skills while awaiting placement in another branch of the military.
TC graduates could also consider a career in the TC, training new troops. The TC had no strength or rank minimums, but required a moderate level of activity.
The National Guard was the old base of the US military structure. It was divided into the Training Division, the Home Guard, and the Mobile Infantry in early May 2009. The Final Commanding officer of the National Guard was General Knojerakk. In many ways, Knojerakk became the head of the defunct National Guard during this transition as General Istarlan had retired.and XO was Lt. General
In February 2010 during a Joint Chiefs of Staff structure reorganization, the National Guard was reinstated in place of the defunct Home Guard as a mobile military force with a dedicated domestic battalion for land-locked personnel while the rest of the branch is able to deploy overseas and participate in mobile strike operations. The National Guard was then led by General
The Mobile Infantry was the first step along the way to a successful career in the US military. The MI was dedicated to the defense of American interests both at home and abroad. As a deploying force, infantrymen would leave the nation regularly, and therefore would only accept soldiers who were willing and able to break business and party ties for days at a time. The MI was filled with active, dedicated soldiers who are willing to fight for their country, as well as quickly following orders without question. The MI was the largest force in the US military.
United States Army
United States Army consisted of the Divisions of the former Army Group West, the 1st, 5th, and 25th, as well as the divisions in the former United States Cavalry, the 3rd and 11th. It also housed its own Ranger program. When the Army Group West reverted back to the name of the U.S. Army, the Army Group East became the U.S. Cavalry, which was later merged again with the Army.
The Airborne was an elite fighting force. The basic premise of the Airborne was that they can arrive with such speed that a coherent defense cannot be mounted against them for some time. Airborne forces were military units set up to be moved by aircraft and 'dropped' into battle. Thus they can be placed behind enemy lines, and have the ability to deploy almost anywhere with little warning. Paratroopers had to be very active, along with having a strength of at least 2500.
The United States Marine Corps was America's finest. The Marines were a brotherhood of the strongest and most dedicated soldiers that the US and the eWorld have to offer. They were the first and most frequent to deploy, get the best weapons, and take enemies down in no time.
The United States Air Force fought with votes instead of guns. Created in response to the lack of organization in the anti-PTO efforts of the May 2009 Congressional elections, the Air Force was a non-traditional area of the military. Its sole purpose was to stop PTOs in both allied and defenseless small countries around the world. Many members of other US military branches were also members of the Air Force. To join, a recruit must have been willing and able to be mobile and ready to move on the night of CP, PP, and Congressional elections and vote in a country that was assigned, as opposed to using the vote at home. The end of the Air Force came when the initialization of eRepublik's citizenship system, which added a layer of protection by having foreign countries from being taken over by having congressmen personally approve citizenship requests. The branch has since been converted into a division in the Central Intelligence Agency.
The Home Guard was the last line in the defense of the American homeland. As the military's stay-at-home force, the HG did not deploy on foreign missions, although they did allow their soldiers leave to deploy in allied conflicts. Instead, the Home Guard kept themselves at a high state of readiness in preparation for any threat to American soil. The HG was the perfect place for congressmen or other citizens who could not deploy to foreign nations, but still wanted to proudly support their country through military service.
Army High Command
The eUnited States Army High Command originally served as the logistics, management, and oversight for Army Group East and Army Group West post-split from the United States Army on February 12, 2010. However, after an intensive review in logistics overlap, Army High Command was dissolved and split into their respective counterparts in Army Group East and Army Group West on February 29, 2010.
United States Army Group East
Army Group East, or [AGE] consisted of the former United States Army's Second, Fourth, and Tenth Infantry Divisions. In addition, it housed a more prominent Army Ranger program (nicknamed [RAGE]). The branch was rebranded to the United States Cavalry on June 30, 2010.
United States Army Group West
Army Group West, or [AGW] consisted of the former United States Army's First, Fifth, and Twenty-Fifth Infantry Divisions. It also housed their own Ranger program. The branch was rebranded to the United States Army on June 30, 2010, reactivating the briefly disbanded branch after the Army split into three separate entities on February 12, 2010.
United States Cavalry, formerly Army Group East, consisted of the former United States Army Group East's Second, Fourth, and Tenth Infantry Divisions. In addition, the Cavalry housed a Ranger program from AGE and that had been rebranded as the United States Rangers.
