"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
— Joseph Campbell
  Throughout history, there are those in the service of their nation that show an exemplary prowess and skill in their field. Those such as SEAL Team Six, the 101st Airbourne, The British Gurkhas, the Landsknecht, the Hussars, and the Legionaries. Though they are rarely seen in such fantasy or science fiction worlds.   Using the Military Formations Template, create a special, seemingly legendary and renowned military unit in your world that have earned both fame and infamy throughout their history, no matter how brief.   This challenge will be 24 Hours Long, with the winner receiving the book Writing Military Science Fiction: Infantry by William S. Frisbee Jr., a crucial reference for military fiction writers.
