LoreThe United States Civilization Preservation Force Marine Division, originally the United States Marine Corps, has been performing duties on both coasts since 2033. In the early years, the Corps job was to eliminate bands of hostile wastelanders and to secure unorganized territories across the USA to later become sites where military bases or towns would begin construction. The USCPF Marines currently work with the Eastern, Western, and Alaskan fronts to assist in USCPF combat operations, territory defense, heavy sieges, and base construction. By 2115, it is most likely a mere command element to the actual branch of the Marine Corps.
