The Armed Forces
of the Seiber Islands
Wotanberg's Islands in the Sun
The 1st Unified Seiber Artillery
Foreign Advisor Detachment
A Helava* Detachment
- The Detatchment is a company-sized
unit which provides technical and tactical assistance to the
Seiber Artillery and other units. It is part of the Helava Group, which was formed as the "home" for the
many foreigners which had to be employed and enlisted to either
provide short-term augmentation of or long-term support for regular
Seiber units as part of the Seiber Islands program to strengthen
- Like the Detachment's "sister"
unit in the Grand Duchy of Wotanberg--the 1 United States Artillery Field Assistance
the detachment's personnel are American "Redlegs" no
longer needed to serve their own country on active duty, but
who still wish to actively serve democracy and justice. However,
the Government of the Seiber Islands will neither confirm nor
deny that any of its Detachment's current members were at any
time assigned to a U.S. Army unit with a similar name--the 1st
United States Army Field Artillery Detachment or 1st USAFAD--which
was stationed in Wesel, Germany from 1965 until 1992. The Grand
Duchy does, however insist that its 1st USAFAD should not be
confused or compared with the American 1st USAFAD, which, as described in a website dedicated to that detachment, ". . . was a Warhead Detachment
assigned to maintain control and custody of U.S. nuclear weapons."
In this regard, the Government of the Seiber Islands also states
categorically that its 1st USAFAD does not maintain custody and
control of U.S. nuclear weapons.
