History

The United Halltanian military was instituted on June 6 2003. At the time, it was organized as the Nation of AMC's Defense Forces. After the reorganization into United Imperial Halltania, and later United Halltania, the nation's military adjusted it's organization accordingly while maintaining it's original command structure.

Operation Iraqi Freedom

In early 2005, the military of United Halltania was requested to assist the United States with it's war in Iraq. United Halltania lent assistance in the form of combat troops and intelligence professionals for the duration of the campaign, and were cited for being directly responsible for many successful operations.

On March 16, 2006, United Halltania suffered it's first and only combat-related casualty. As a result, Emperor Samuel I named March 16 as Remembrance Day.
