Army of Ethosia
The Army of Ethosia is the premier ground and cyber warfare branch of the Uniformed Services of Ethosia. It was founded on 20 July 2023 upon the ascension of Connor McLean to the position of Minister of Defense by order of President Gabriel Sebastian. It is the first formally standing army in the history of Ethosia.
History of the Army
Prehistory and foundation
The Ethosian Army can most directly trace its roots to the Ethosian Volunteers and Guerrilla's of the Ozark Crisis, and the Daz Forbond movement which formed during a period of Ethosian collapse. The Ethosian Army was formally activated on 20 July 2023, when President Gabriel Sebastian named Connor McLean as Ethosian Minister of Defense, and granted him the rank of General.
Early months and late 2023
Ethosia's Army was stagnant in its first few months, with only minor developments being made by General McLean from the months of July to October. It was not till 2 October that McLean's first major order as General was announced. Force Order 001, the first of its kind, ordered all Ethosian citizens nationalized before 2 October 2023 be conscripted into the Ethosian Army Reserves, with the first two soldiers of the Army being put into service that day.
The Ethosian Army's primary mission and purpose is to maintain the common defense of the people of Ethosia, protect Ethosian sovereignty, and to engage and neutralize enemies of the Republic of Ethosia both at home and abroad.
The ranks of the Ethosian Army are a direct copy of the rank structure of the Libertalian Army, one of many systems carried over from Libertalia by General McLean, as McLean is the President of Libertalia and a Lt. Colonel in its Army.
|Infantry Corps||Comprises all infantry and mechanized units of the Army|
|Cyber Corps||Comprises all units responsible for cyber security|
|Logistics Corps||Comprises the Army Logistics Command|
|Adjutant Generals Corps||Responsible for recruiting and retention, the Army Reserves, and the Army Court system|
|Medical Corps||Comprises all Army medical units.|
|1st Reserve Regiment||General McLean||Infantry and cybersecurity|
Ethosia's Army heavily derives influence from the Army of Libertalia, with the latter being the seniormost of the two forces. Ethosia's Army currently utilizes Libertalian ranks, organizational and unit structure systems, force doctrine and enlistment standards.
