Operation: Child Shield is a Union of Everett military effort in Uganda to combat the Lord's Resistance Army insurgent militia. Child Shield is named for one of the major atrocities taking place in the Uganda war in which LRA militia are known for widespread kidnapping of children across Uganda to attempt to build LRA troop count by forcing abducted boys into fighting as soldiers and girls as sex slaves.
The Union of Everett stated on March 6th during a special meeting in the executive offices that the goal of the mission is military assistance to current combatants against the LRA forces with economic support, healthcare and medical aid to the thousands of displaced victims and the tens of thousands of children who frequently flee regions of violence. Arms supplies and combat training to the Ugandan army is also a major component of the Operation to aid in strengthen combat abilities to fight off LRA forces and maintain order in affected regions. In addition to these two parts of support, Everetti armed forces are to be deployed into the region including a platoon of Militant Forces agents, a helicopter squadron of UH-60 Blackhawk and AH-64 Apaches to provide aerial support against ground targets. The official goals of Everetti combat forces in Uganda are the capture and or kill of LRA leadership, including International Criminal Court indicted war criminal Joseph Kony.
Recently, the Hurian Federation has pledged it's support for the LRA. Huria is determined to force the illegal Everetti incursion into its territory, seeking to stop their invasion of the Uganda State.
Operation: Child Shield
On March 8th, 2012, two days after the announcement of the Operation, Union of Everett Militant Forces stationed in Somalia deployed into northern Uganda's city of Guru, preparing a secure zone for future troops and special aid to the afflicted region. Landing via helicopter from Kappa Squadron of the Everetti Air Force, 50 agents and special forces troops from the UEMF secured Guru during a night mission. Air support AH-64 Apache helicopters launched the first aerial strikes on LRA vehicles in the north and west of Uganda, preventing the ease of movement of LRA forces and weapons supplies.
On March 9th, 2012, UAV's deployed from nearby Somali naval guard forces, EVS Lynn and EVS Medford Massachusetts class battleships. The EVNS Compassion hospital ship in the Persian Gulf was alerted to the possibility of deployment to the Kenyan coast to provide medical aid to possibly hundreds of injured abducted children who may be recovered during Operation: Child Shield. The same day, America-class amphibious carrier EVS Lima was alerted to deployment to Kenya, carrying food, medical and other aid supplies to the region in addition to further Everetti combat troops and military advisers to aid Uganda's military to combating and maintaining security of territories from the LRA.
