Richmond Military Academy

Richmond, having formerly served as the primary headquarters of the Liberty Navy, had its role changed as the construction of the Chayenne Mountain Complex was completed on the surface of Planet Columbia. Today it serves as the Liberty Navy's second Military Academy out in space after West Point in the New York system.
With the war against Rheinland slowly approaching its peak however, the need for officers dedicatedly trained to combat a hostile Military rather than bands of outlaws rose quickly and Richmond simply provided most of the necessary facilities required in order to function as a full-scale Military Academy. Thus, while essentially fulfilling the same purpose as West Point, Richmond's training programs are different in that the emphasis here lies on inter-house warfare rather than the combating of piracy and terrorism throughout Liberty, the latter being what West Point's focus has shifted to now.
Even though Richmond lacks West Point's long-standing tradition, many of the officers who were trained here have already made a name for themselves on the frontlines, with their successors eagerly absorbing their combat experience in order to follow their shining example.
