4:00 PM, March 6th:

*GLS President Jake walks in front of a long, red ribbon that is covering the the entrances and in front of a microphone, and begins to speak*

I thank all of you for attending this ceremony. In front of us, lay two important war memorials. These war memorials are not just to attract tourists, but they remind us of the struggles that we had in the past. Over 15,000 of our troops risked theirs lives trying to rescue 2,000 trapped Heskan soldiers in Diberia. However, a few months later, a devastating civil war sparked in our nation, leaving our military trapped in Diberia. During the GLS Civil War, about 10,000 of our soldiers retreated into the original legislative building as a last stand against Gar Fan's military. The 10,000 soldiers held out through the war and fought bravely against Gar Fan's constant flood of soldiers, tanks, and missiles. The original legislative building is now encased with a larger glass building. Each helmet with a name tag on them, in and around the the building, underneath glass floors, marks each soldier that died while trying to fight against Gar Fan's military. There is also a large wall with all of the soldiers' names that died while fighting. However, we should not forget our neighbor, Bohovia helped us to fight against Gar Fan. A separate wall have been built to hold the Bohovian soldiers' names that belonged to soldiers that were killed.

*President Jake stops for a moment, and continues*

A war memorial for our soldiers that fought bravely against endless hordes of zombies in Diberia was built. Two walls were installed and have our soldiers' names that were killed or missing in action. Between both memorials, a large graveyard was built and it holds dead soldiers that fought in the Diberian anti-zombie war, and killed soldiers from Bohovia, Gar Fan's military, and GLS military that fought in the GLS Civil War.

Today, I shall open the the memorials...

*Jake pulls out a pair of scissors and cuts the red ribbons.*

OOC: I will provide all of the details of the war memorials, if anyone wants to RP a character that is visiting the war memorials.

A journalist from Promised Land was there to document the grand opening of this event. She wasn't the first into the memorial, but rather, she entered after the initial rush...

OOC: I will post the details soon, it will take a while since there will be a lot. ;)

GLS Civil War Memorial:

The GLS Civil War memorial was massive. Outside of the memorial, massive reinforced, unbreakable glass tiles covered the area of 150x150 meters. Beneath the glass, one meter, Gar Fan's military helmets laid on the concrete ground, some of with name tags on them and others marked, "Unknown". There were actual weapons that Gar Fan's military used, and fake grenades (used to replace the real unused grenades to avoid tourists being blown up). Plus, almost all of the destroyed/damaged Gar Fan's military vehicles were sitting on lowered concrete pits, and even all of Gar Fan's air planes that were shot down were lying on the lowered concrete pits. Each helmet meant a soldier was killed at that spot.

The war memorial was actually the original GLS Legislative building that have been reinforced with hidden steel beams to keep the building stable, and a giant glass dome to protect the building. The concrete that was replaced (Why? The workers needed to place the reinforcement beams hidden from view) were aged and purposely yet slightly damaged to match the surrounding original concrete. There were raised glass flooring to allow tourists to see the GLS soldiers' helmets and original artifacts without causing damages. Each artifact in and around the building had a small stand that showed info about it.

Inside the lobby, the original GLS flag that was flown over the building during the war hung from the ceiling while covered with unbreakable and reinforced glass. The flag was in bad condition, it was full of holes from artillery shelling and gun fires, and parts of it was burnt, which is why it needed protection and reinforcing. There were small maps of the building, small books that held info about the war and the weapons/vehicles used. In fact, there was one room on the right side of the first floor lobby that displayed all of the weapons/vehicles used during the war.

The glass flooring covered the entire lobby. Beneath the glass flooring, it was obvious that the marble lobby flooring completely collapsed and was covered with GLS and Gar Fan's military helmets, destroyed and burnt out vehicles, burn marks, bullet holes, craters, rubble, and bits of dried blood stain. The ceiling was covered with holes (that are now covered with glass) that were drilled by the GLS soldiers as an attempt to stop Gar Fan's invading soldiers and vehicles by shooting from above. The large lobby wall that stood in front of the lobby entrance was gone, it was knocked down and reduced into giant pile of rubble with steel framing sticking out of the sides by Gar Fan's military vehicles that were too fast to stop, revealing the grand staircases. There were newly placed marble walls on the side of the lobby, with the names of the GLS, Bohovian, and Gar Fan's dead soldiers. The lobby also had pictures and videos of the battle in the lobby, and a large picture of the lobby before the war started. There were actual machine gun, rocket launcher, and mini artillery gun nests on the second floor of the lobby.

There were a total of 5 floors in the building and a single basement floor. Each room in the first floor was burnt from previous bloody battles, and had large machine guns with rocket launchers stationed at each window. As usual, there were helmets covering the floors beneath the glass floors. The grand stairways on the first floor was completely reduced to rubble and covered with burnt out vehicles and helmets, so there is glass stairways replacing the destroyed 1st floor section of the stairway.

The second floor didn't have any Gar Fan's soldiers killed, but there were heavy damages and lots of helmets lying around or in the rooms that were on the edge of the building. Due to heavy shelling and rocket attacks during the war, many of the second floors were heavily damaged, but there are still actual heavy machine gun nests stationed at the windows/opening of the rooms to the outside.

The third floor had similar damages as the second floor. In the middle part of the building, a makeshift hospital that was set up during the war remained. The makeshift hospital didn't have any helmets, but there were name tags on the wall in front of the beds showing who died while was in the hospital beds. Plus, there was a radio room, anti-missile defense control room, anti-air craft defense control room, the officers' room, and General Far's room.

The fourth floor had even heavier damages than the 2nd or 3rd floor, and one third of it was off-access since the damages was so severe. There were large amount of GLS military helmets scattered around the building. The sleeping quarter section was heavily damaged and was completely covered with helmets. Helmets sat on the bunk beds, indicating many soldiers were killed while still in the sleep, and more helmets on the floor beneath the glass flooring.

The fifth room was completely devastated. Helmets laid everywhere. There were counter-missile rocket launchers, heavy artillery guns, anti-air craft guns, anti-tank guns, and massive machine guns. Many of the guns on the 5th room were damaged or destroyed.

The building's basement also had damages. Since the lobby floors collapsed, part of the basement was off-access due to the damages. There were shelves after shelves of real food, medical, weapons, bullets, barbed wires, empty sand bags, and etc. The explosives, including artillery shells and rockets were fake. Why where the real ones replaced? The engineers knew that real explosives become unstable over time and it would be nasty if they all ignited while there were tourists in the memorial.

OOC: Info on the Diberian anti-zombie war memorial and the graveyards will come later...

The journalist explored the GLS Civil War memorial first. A truly massive complex, she wasn't sure what to look at first.

She was truly impressed with the large display of helmets, discarded weapons, and damaged or destroyed vehicles and planes. It was truly daunting to think that so many men had died here, and she hadn't even gone inside yet.

Once inside, she picked a direction at random, ending up in front of one of the video sreens displaying the battle. It happened to be near the flag, and when she craned her head up to look, she was astounded that fabric so tattered could still be holding together. She made a note, and had her photographer take a picture of it.

She also noted the real weapon emplacements that no doubt still worked, and had never been removed.

The makeshift hospital on the third floor was quite enlightening, revealing just how deperate the battle had been.

All in all, she was truly impressed with the thought and scope of this memorial.

Diberia Anti-Zombie War Memorial:

The war memorial was not as grand as the GLS Civil War memorial, but it was still decent. It was 2km north of the GLS Civil War memorial and was right next the the GLS Civil War graveyard and the Diberia Anti-Zombie War graveyard. The war memorial consisted a large building. Around the building was covered with smooth concrete tiles, and in front of the building stood a large bronze statue showing four soldiers, the first one was injured, the second and third one was firing at something (a zombie), and the fourth one was speaking into a radio. Inside the building, there were actual pictures and videos of the battles, a large map showing the direction of the building, an actual GLS flag that was flown over the Cartwheel fort (the main GLS military base). The flag did have some damages, there were zombie claw marks, some bullet holes from misfiring, burn marks, and of course, dried blood stain that the artifacts restorers could not fully remove.

There were planning maps of the GLS and Heskan military forts, battle maps, and more info about the war in the building.

The war memorial had actual weapons and vehicles used by the GLS during the anti-zombie war, and even the weapons and vehicles that the Heskan military used during the anti-zombie war. All of the vehicles and weapons had info about it on the glass protective boxes. There was even one of the 20 GLS B-52 Stratofortress jets and one of the 20 GLS B-1B Lancer jets used for bombing raids against mobs of zombies in the building.

Under the building, in the basement floors, something was unexpected. Yep, it was an actual GLS military cargo ship that was used to transport soldiers, supplies, weapons, vehicles, and etc for the anti-zombie war. How did the construction workers move the ship under the building? They took apart the ship, transferred the ship parts to the war memorial construction site, and then rebuild the ship. Tourists could actually walk and look around inside the military cargo ship as long as they don't try to damage anything.

A reporter from Bohovia, had arrived at the memorial, along with Sgt. Dillmore and Cprl. Jackson of the Bohovian military.

All three of them were viewing the burnt flags, and the large amount of guns, seized in the battle. They then arrvied at the GLS Wall Memorial, and the two military officers saluted the name's of the wall, they then travelled to the graveyard, and the reporter wrote.

"It was trully shocking to see, how large this graveyard was. It jsut shows you, how many of Bohovia's and GLS soliders lost there lives. They will not be forgotten"

The group moves into the Bohovian Memorial Wall, they stand for 1 minute in silence as the soliders salut the names of the fallen Bohovian soliders.

Message to GLS, from Bohovia**

Hello, this is Aruj Sampson. I had seen the news report in our nations newspaper, and I was shocked at how exquisite It was, we thank you for including a memorial of our soliders as well, It means a lot to the families of the fallen soliders.

It seems that our Bohovian workers are not needed anymore, we would like to pick them up, although we need to send around 80 large planes to your airport, so we need your air traffic control to, clear the runway for about 1 hour while we land and pick up are workers, we will also be sending several large trains and large buses to pick up our 27,000 workers. Awaiting clearence...

All of them will arrive home within about 2-3 days using the waterway, rail, and road systems, including the airport.

OOC: Just pretend that they have already arrived home, I don't feel like RPing transferring them home.

IC: GLS Civil War memorial graveyard:

It was indeed massive and was located right next to the GLS Civil War memorial building toward the west. There were about 4,000 dead GLS soldiers, 3,500 dead Bohovian soldiers, a whooping 50,562 Gar Fan's dead soldiers, and about 20,000 unknown soldiers in the graveyard. One section was the GLS, the second section was the Bohovia, the third section was Gar Fan's, and the last section holds soldiers that can't be identified. People are allowed to place objects (as long as it is appropriate) in front of the grave markers. All the grave markers were made out of marble slabs (with concrete inside) with gold lettering on them, and thick unbreakable glass covering. The grave markers (except for the unknown section), had the full name of the dead soldier, what military unit it was in, birth date, and death date (sometime estimated). The unknown section grave markers only had the word "UNKNOWN"

Diberian Anti-Zombie War memorial graveyard:

It was located south of the Diberian Anti-Zombie War memorial building. It held about 14,000 GLS soldiers and nearly 10,000 unknown soldiers (some of them are dead zombie soldiers). The grave markers are similar to the GLS Civil War memorial graveyard.

IC: 5:00 PM, GLS National News Report:

Due to an error, the famous GLS Destroyer V1 tank did not show up in the GLS Civil War memorial building, and instead, still sat in an over sized truck outside of the memorial with the covering on. The local government have planned to move the tank into the GLS Civil War memorial building today, the moving process will take up to 15-20 minutes. The GLS Destroyer V1 tank's info is here:

GLS Destroyer tank V1, it's armor was 25 cm of titanium alloy that is 5x stronger than steel, the main turret size is 90 mm, 5 meters long, it can fire a shell per 3 seconds, and is as known as the "destructive telephone pole". The tank had hardly any weak spots, it was 9 meters long and 5 meters wide, the area between the turret and the body is covered with extra armoring with rollers in the inside to reduce friction, the bottom side is designed to funnel mine explosions outward, all sides, including the rear sides have the same amount of armoring, the tank trends were covered with titanium alloy to protect the trends from explosions, and the machine gun nest on top of the turret is covered with a domed shape armoring with a thick bullet proof glass viewer to protect the machine gunner.

The machine gun nest had a heavy machine gun that can fire up to 25 bullets per second, equipped with dual 20 mm cannons, and can turn 360 degree.

What was most feared by Gar Fan's military was the destroyer tank can demolish their heavy armored tanks about 2-3 miles away, the machine gunner on top of the tank can demolish lightly armored vehicles and troops quickly, and the armoring made it almost impossible to stop the destroyer tank with regular anti tank guns and short range artillery guns.

However, the tank is extremely heavy and slow (25 mph) thanks to all of the armoring and the firepower, and worse, there is only one GLS Destroyer tank V1 in the GLS military due to the costs, the difficulty to produce the tank, and the time to produce the tank. The tank can also be disabled from constant heavy shelling, air strikes, and/or rocket strikes.

OOC: Wow...there's so much information there, I'm not sure anything I do can do it justice...needless to say, the reporter was impressed. :D

OOC: Hm, maybe I should tone down the details a bit...
