Tue. Jan 3, 3049: In spite of AFFC pressure, the Remagen CMM still display their original command’s name, “Nunivak CR”, with pride.
It seems like it should be the other way around, according to Sarna
The original Remagen Combat Region was renamed the Nunivak Combat Region following the formation of the Federated Commonwealth, but the Remagen CMM refused to change their name.
It should be noted that Remagen
are two planets in separate systems, but close enough to one another (56.80 LY apart) to be considered within the same region... and that the Remagen CMM is but a small part of the larger Crucis March Militia
, which "is tasked with guarding the core of the Federated Suns. While most of the CrMM doesn't see much action, the border combat regions often deal with pirate raids."
So, they're the FedSuns version of the Coast Guard and/or National Guard?

Federated Commonwealth infighting?
Not really - the members of the Remagen CMM clearly have a strong sense of pride in their unit's identity and history and preferred to retain the original name to symbolize both that pride and the objects thereof... and were apparently allowed to keep the unit's name by the brass, likely because TPTB recognized and sympathized with the Remagen CMM's sentiments.
That sort of pride and sense of identity makes the Remagen CMM seem like the sort of gents that would fight hard and fight well under all conditions, especially
during the toughest of times...
FedSuns and FedCom FTW!
