History

The Streshian Army was founded with the nation on 28 December 2017. Immediately, volunteers began enlisting. Soon after, a command structure and unit structure was figured out. A week later, the first class graduated basic training. The Streshian Army was mobilized, preparing to fight Astain. But no action was ever seen by these men who mobilized that cold January day. For a peace treaty between one of Streshia's allies and Astain was signed quickly. In February 2018 a mass armament program was launched to equip all soldiers with uniforms, load bearing equipment, weapons, and ammunition by June. The program was completed ahead of time on 19 April 2018.

Training

Officer Training

Officer training lasts for a week and consists of both class and field time. Officers-to-be learn about doctrine, troop management, supply management, and effective command strategies. This is all then applied during field exercises.
