NEWS UPDATE:

International/Major

General Rusa MacNell has accepted the post of Secretary of Defense! He had this to say when interviewed

I am quite pleased to be put in as SecDef and also I think that I'll do the military a great deal of good as I personally have pushed for the now accepted 2010-2011 defense budget. The first thing I'll do as SecDef is increase the Marines and Army by 500 soldiers each because as of recent, we are seeing a border boom and our military needs to be able to respond quickly and swiftly to any and all threats.

Military

The Army is setting up its first airborne corps of 100 soldiers! They are currently building a base to house and train these elite soldiers. Also the Death Brigade is being "disbanded" and being turned into a new Special Forces Group.
