Bravelandic National Militia

The Bravelandic National Militia is the army of Braveland, founded on June 7, 2016. Before 2016, the BVC was the name for the army. Then the Police Force and Naval Guard came around and had to change its name to the Bravelandic National Militia. Volunteer Corps is another phrase for Armed Forces, to make it clearer. The National Militia has 18 active personnel and all 4 of the reserve personnel.

Bravelandic Police Force

The Bravelandic Police Force is one branch of the BVC. It was founded June 5, 2016, following the invasion. It consists of 8 soldiers from the volunteer force. They patrol the country every 2 days. Headquarters are in Adamstown.

Bravelandic Naval Guard

The Bravelandic navy, or Bravelandic Naval Guard, is another branch of the BVC. Founded July 16, 2017, it consists of one paddle boat, a pontoon boat, and a runabout boat. There are only 3 personnel in this branch. These boats are all owned by a relative of Jack Perry, but were granted usage for the Naval Guard. The BNG has never gotten into a battle. The headquarters are in Thompson, which is by a lake, near Detroit. By next month, we are hoping to claim a beach on Lake Huron and buy a Trawler Boat or a Fishing Boat.

Battle of the Shed

June 4, 2016

Also known as the Sagan-Bravelandic War, the Battle of the Shed happened in Adamstown. 8 people, who called themselves the Black Hook, invaded with BB-Guns and shot 2 citizens. 3 soldiers were on duty and defended the shed fiercely until the entire defense force, except 10 people, showed up and made the Black Hook leave. We later found out that they were from the city of Saginaw and claimed to be the micronation of "Sagaland", who we found out had the population of 131. These are our enemies.

History with Sagaland

June 4, 2016: Our history began with Sagaland on June 4, 2016. The Sagans launched an attack with 8 men. First it was an 8 vs 3, then it turned into a 7 vs 16, which of course we won.

June 29, 2016: Sagaland threatens us against, saying they will invade the capital house with their entire military. Seeing the size of Sagaland, we guessed their military size was between 50 - 80 troops. It could have been a trick, though. We still don't know to this day.

January 9, 2017: Go foward 6 months, it was a normal day in Gera, Braveland. Then a black jeep pulls into the bar parking lot and 3 men come out of the vehicle. They don't go inside of the bar, but instead walking alongside the road. A resident that is dedicated to Braveland spots them and sees they are heading in the direction to Adamstown. At the capital house we got a call about them, so we sent 10 personnel to stop them. We kept them hostage for 2 hours until the Vice-President herself came down to Adamstown and worked out a deal, called the Gera Deal. We wouldn't attack each other anymore, but we wouldn't trade either. The 3 men left with the vice-president and her bodyguards.

September 10, 2017: Threats of a Sagan invasion were coming in. We brushed them off, but still hoped Sagaland would stick by the Gera Deal.

July 18, 2018: A year later, word came around saying that Sagaland has militarized almost half their population, which made us nervous. Right now, we are bumping training up to once a week. If we hear any more threats, we will train 3 times a week.

July 25, 2018: 3 Sagan soldiers drove into Adamstown and shouted "Watch your back, Jack!". We shot a few bullets at them and then they left.

July 26, 2018: On the Amino app, Jack put out a poll asking if we should declare war or not. It came out to be a 50% on each. The Election Council decided to wait until they attacked.
