Operation Willful Order
Conceived in 1170 A.E. by Admiral Tobias Hessen, Willful Order was finally approved in 1172 by President Michael Logan and launched at the beginning of 1173. The purpose of the operation was to conscript thousands of the private contractors, from combat mercenaries to electricians and pilots, to help offset the enormous task of fighting the numerous terrorist organizations plaguing Anarc. The contractors would take on basic military security, reconaissance, and maintenance tasks, allowing the Keeper Armadas to focus entirely on larger threats. Despite massive initial popularity (the Operation payed fairly well and was entirely legal), recruitment dropped more than 90% after the terrorist attack during the 1163rd Keeper Military Assembly The Operation is still in place, but its future is unknown.
