The National Defense

ammo-box

This is an ammunition cartridge box, the same kind utilized by our nation’s entire Department of Defense.  Our army maintains thousands upon thousands of these boxes for many purposes.  Whether it’s training, stockpiling, or actual battle, a large amount of ammunition is required for the nation’s survival.  The ASD United Army maintains a general supply of around 1-1.5 billion rounds of ammunition at all times as a preparation for, or even a deterrent, to a foreign invasion.  Every combat soldier is supposed to carry around 400-500 rounds with them on missions, patrols, or even defense of installations.

-Human losses must be kept at a minimum

Response to Acts of War

-Have a large force patrol the homeland for acts of war or terror

Humanity- A serviceman must have respect for human life and do everything possible to preserve it.

Example- Leadership is best when a serviceman sets an example of it.

Sense of Duty- Servicemen must always know what they are fighting for, as well as what is at stake in the nation.

Forward Operating Bases

101030-F-0000B-015

A Forward Operating Base is a small installation designed to secure a battle area without moving large groups of people all at once.  Our FOBs hold up to 300 personnel and have enough space to last them around 6 months.  In the event of a terrorist attack or invasion, these troops will serve as first responders, ready to defend the nation in less than fifteen minutes.  There are an estimated 30 of these bases around the nation, ready to respond to any incident.

National Service

Everyone in ASD United is required by the Defense Service and Manpower Act to serve at least four years in some branch of the armed services.  The army has priority over the other branches, yet there is a “disqualification” pipeline, it follows this pattern:

Army- If found to be a “4” (Unserviceable), the person is transferred to the Air Force.

Air Force- If the person is found to be a “4”, they are transferred to the Navy.

Navy- If a person is found to be a “4”, they will be pardoned from military service altogether, usually for health reasons.

The usual health disqualifiers for service are:

-Diabetes Mellitus

-Cancer Survival

-Blood borne infections, such as HIV, Hepatitis, and others

-History of Suicide Attempts

-Tobacco-related problems

-Asthma

-Severe Psychiatric Disabilities, such as Schizophrenia, Depression, or others

Acts of War

The ASDU Department of Defense has guidelines to acts of war and/or terrorism.  This “escalation” matrix is as follows:

Defense Readiness Condition (DEFCON)

5- Vigilance- There is no danger of war.  An active duty force is patrolling the nation for any threats or suspicious vehicles.

4- Threat spotted- A terrorist or potential invader has been spotted.  All available forces will respond to the threat and defuse it or call for reinforcements.

3- Mobilization- War or a terrorist crisis requires an immediate mobilization of all armed services.  The ASDU Army can mobilize 900,000 men in 48 hours.  They respond to any further invasions or terrorist acts.

2- Total War Imminent- All armed services are below maximum readiness.

1- Maximum Readiness- All armed services are at full readiness, prepared to strike on command.
