350th Anniversary of Shieldmaidens Day

Post by Sven Shieldmaker on Thu Jun 09, 2016 1:12 am

350 years ago today Arne Erakmir, an Eorl representing one of the southern tribes in the Stortinget congress, during a discussion about getting to Valhalla, stood up and asked this now famous question, "So let me get this straight, we can get to Valhalla falling in battle, but none of our women will be there, ever??" This lead to policy changes that opened up the military to women (Shieldmaidens, now). Today, shieldmaidens comprise 41% of DWFP's military. (Army: 38% of infantry, 36% of armored forces, 17% of special forces, 58% of support services, 91% of snipers, 48% of the Air force, and 29% of the Navy)

The city of Erakmir is named for Arne Erakmir. Join us in celebrating Shieldmaiden's Day. Of the 15,845 infantry fallen, 1380 tank crewpersons, and 1 fighter pilot that achieved Valhalla since joining the GPA, 6374 were shieldmaidens.

As Queen of Mannland, a matriarchal society in Orbis with a female-led military, I would like to send belated regards on this most auspicious occasion. We raise our champagne flutes in honor of your brave and honorable Shieldmaidens who are serving, have served, and to those who have fallen in glory.

To our sisters on the battlefield!



Sincerely,
Queen M
