Numerous workers from the Empire were to be directed towards the Joint Legion-Wagadou Territory. The workers would begin construction of numerous docks for commercial ships, airstrips for private and personal commercial aircraft, airstrips for military aircraft, and housing projects for the Legion and Wagadou residents.

Wagadou armed forces would be rotated in and out of the area, staying for a period of two months, for combat training and joint exercises with the Legion forces arriving. The first shipment of Wagadou soldiers would be 6,000 men strong.

In addition to the military housing, and commercial ventures in the JLWT, a city was going to be constructed on the outskirts of it, almost in Wagadou-proper. It would be a massive commercialized city, with numerous housing units to support a population. The city would be named Legion, in honor of the nation.

Legion transports quickly make the trip and the Engineers and their security detachment make themselves busy with the mundane chores of construction. It's quite a bit of construction, slated to take several weeks in fact. This is not much of an problem as the oncoming Legion forces will be able to stretch their legs by performing field execercises with their new partners in commerce and regional security to shake the rust off.

The prefabricated sleeping and dining quarters are quickly raised. They follow a very sturdy, rugged, and easily to build design that are rather spartan of creature comforts. With time though air conditioners, a bit of paint, and the other creature comforts of home will be added. Other small buildings are going up as well that follow specific designs for warehouses, machine shops, and repair buildings. Recreational facilities are a bit spartan at this point, with plans for a movie theater and sports complex to go up in several months. Till then things like the bulldozed bit of rough country will have to do for the Legion's Football pitch.

All Legion forces slated for the West African Development Brigade have arrived. Housing for them has been built. Recreational facilities for these troops are being outsourced to local firms at the present times. Legion Engineers begin the immediate construction of a remote storage site that will become the future home for the equipment for an entire Armored Brigade.

A Port Sudan firm by the name of Port Sudan Imports and Exports also is given permission to seek out local partners for a fabrication plant that will provide several dozen local jobs and profits for the local partners.

Construction of the recreational facilities are complete. Development of the local roads, airstrips, harbor, and other regional facilities is begun. An Olympic sized indoor swimming pool is started as well.

Two small factories for luxury goods are created under the joint business license.

In the spirit of harmony and brotherhood the Legion Ministry of Education donates the money, books, desks, and supplies to open up 10 small neighborhood style schools in the West African Project Area. These schools are designed to bring vital education services to local communities.

The Legion Ministry of Education will pay teachers from the Empire of Wadagou to teach material that are culturally appropriate to the area. Further, educational funding grants are being made available by the Ministry to facilitate the foreign studies of 200 young men and women from the Empire under the Legion Education Service plan. Five years of education for five years of community service in the joint development area.

The Legion Ministry of Health is also setting up a joint office in the development zone for the purpose of jointly establishing a network of rural clinics and other vital health services. The office will be funded by Legion Health Services and jointly staffed with doctors, nurses, and health specialists from primarily the Empire with a smattering of accounting support from Legion.

These projects fall outside of the West African Development Company and come under the Legion Government Ministries which are sponsoring them. They are projects designed to ensure the local areas are properly serviced and the citizens are properly cared for.

Classified:

Medical and Educational Projects are well underway. The finishing touches are made on the housing quarters. Port and airstrip work is commencing as well. A local security detachment is being organized as well. The men are hired from the Joint Area population and sent to Wadagou Security Schools with a supplemental training course given in Legion security procedures by the Legion SOG team already in place once they've completed their training at their own national facilities.

Authorized Strength for the Joint Development Security Force: 850 Men

(OOC: Civilian police services only.. not military.)

A medical transport company is founded as well by the Honorable West African Company. It will offer its services to the local population for free whilst charging the government for their expenses. It is considered a nonprofit organization. Staff for the ambulances, both ground and air based are recruited from local sources. Training is outsourced to Wadagou vendors and supplemented by the Legion SOG Medical Detachment.

Special Detachment Team members have been busy at work creating a series of deep caches for fuel and munitions. Positioning this equipment will take quite sometime as it is being done a bit at a time. Future expenditures will show the purchase of new combat vehicles of all sorts and artillery for the caches.

Construction was done in Wagadou-proper for the commercial city, Legion. It is regarded as a number one tourist destination and resort and leisure area within Wagadou due to its close proximity to the JLWT.

Again, on the outside of the JLWT, a joint research facility was being created to create and test new designs. Anything from military, industrial, space, and other assorted technology would be crafted there. A separate portion of the facility would be able to be loaned out to foreign nations, given the right price.

Staffing for the schools, new research facility, and the training facility, were being shipped as soon as humanly possible. Coordination with the Legion govt would be made to ensure they arrived at the right place.

The West African Development Brigade is renamed to the West African Brigade and is put on 24 hour alert for war games. As per procedure all ready gear, munitions, and weapons are kept close at hand while mechanics go over the Legion's vehicles to ensure they are properly functioning.

The heavy defensive works that are now known as Fort Mbembe, in honor of the Republic of Sudan's fallen President Charles Mbembe, is now ready for occupation. The two additional rifle battalions make their home in this massive base that is down by the sea with the support of Anti-shipping missile batteries and anti-air batteries. Four dozen CIWs pods have been installed as well to protect the base, the CIWS pods close to the perimeter are specially programmed to serve in an anti-personnel role as well.

The Legion Department of Education and Health are well on their way to concluding their establishment of local health and educational organizations. These organizations, called the Joint Project Health and Educational Organization, are staffed by local citizens and paid by Legion in local currency at prevailing local wages.

Work continues of Fort Mbembe to finish up work on the distributed defense network. The new system will tie in a network of long range, medium range, and short range ADA and Infantry defense weapons into one comprehensive package. Concrete bunkers and underground tunnels are being created as well.

The integrated ADA system of 8 Long Range AAM Emplacements, 11 Medium Range AAM Emplacements, and 13 mobile short ranged AAM units have been installed and fortified. Standard Legion construction protocols of triple layers of redundancy for power and commo have been observed.

Two back up generators have been installed in independent locations in the base as well.


Legion Healthcare and Educational Services in the Project are operating at full capacity with a recent awarding of 200 scholarships for Project students to study abroad.

With Three divisions in place the area is a bit crowded, however, one soon will be leaving. Until then all three are kept busy with training, and refurbishing their equipment for transport.

The civil services of the area are running at full capacity under local control. Local government organizations are running smoothly and are holding regular elections. Educational grants are being handed out to promising young scholars to go study at institutes of higher learning in Ghana or elsewhere if they so choose to do so.

Businesses are booming and running at full capacity providing a range of products to Western African buyers. These include cell phones, vehicles, and a range of personal electronics. The profits are split equally between Legion Government and the government of Ghana.

Legion forces stand at three divisions in the area.

West African Division, 4th Armored Division, and the Central African Division. Commerce and infrastructure development projects once again are started up as the area calms down.

The Central African Division is hard at work deploying into its 16 local patrol bases and creating a system of infrastructure to support long term operations. Fuel, food, and other material requisitions are forwarded to local PRA and West African Military commands and paid for at market rates.
