The 101st formed a part of LVII Corps, Sixth Army, and in 2764 was stationed in District 2 of the Capellan Confederation Military Region. Following the New Vandenberg Uprising the 101st was deployed into an undisclosed area of the Periphery in 2765.

The Mechanised Infantry Divisions of the Star League were used offensively to exploit gaps in the enemy front created by the BattleMech Divisions. They also bore the brunt of defensive actions.
