Lieutenant Colonel Brightwar was offered the placement of commanding a new official Battalion to operate in Azeroth under war circumstances and keep the land safe whilst most of the alliance forces are stationed in Northrend. Lieutenant Colonel Brightwar posted one request that the Battalion be named after her real father's first name. Private Aeron Brightwar. The alliance military, showing no desire to have a Battalion named after the Private of a Stromgarde military force instead called it the Brightwar Battalion in his honour but leaving it so most would assume it was named after the Lieutenant Colonel. Lieutenant Colonel Brightwar then started recruiting the best and brightest people she knew to aid her efforts.
The Brightwar Battalion is currently located in and around Stormwind city. Offering final line defense and basic guarding whilst the Lieutenant Colonel looks for the most promising of Civilians to sign up.
