The Northwood-Oregonian Armed Forces is the military of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon. It is comprised of three branches, the Northwood-Oregonian Army, the Northwood-Oregonian Navy, and the Northwood-Oregonian Air Service.

History

The earliest instance of a Northwood-Oregonian military occurred on 6 December 2020 during the Kingsland Insurrection. This small militia was only comprised of two people, Sovereign Carson Snyder and their then partner.

The Northwood-Oregonian Armed Forces were officially founded with the ratification of the Canon Governing Document of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon on 8 January 2021. No military was raised, however, until 12 February when Sovereign Carson Snyder urged the raising of one due to a scare of an unknown nation seeking to be started nearby the geographical location of Northwood-Oregon. Sovereign Carson sought the opinion of Duke Grant Bruns, who believed the idea was too sudden, and Prince Andrew Stuller, who supported the idea. Sovereign Carson eventually asked for the approval of Sovereign Sarah Freck to produce an army, which she approved. The nation seeking to be formed was, in the end, not overly near to Northwood-Oregon, nor hostile.

Structure

The administrative structure and proceedings of the Northwood-Oregonian Armed Forces is under the jurisdiction of the Sovereigns of Northwood-Oregon, as established by the Kingdom's Canon Governing Document. On 12 February 2021, Sovereign Sarah delegated her part of management to Sovereign Carson, in the interest of streamlining the process, though she could step back into her role at any point.

The highest in the military chain of command is the Master Sergeant, currently Andrew Stuller, who was appointed to the position on 12 February 2021.

Budget

There is currently no budget for the Northwood-Oregonian Armed Forces. All authority over budgeting is delegated to the Royal Deluge.
