In 2764, the unit was assigned, as a part of the XXII Corps, Fourteenth Army, to District 1 of the Draconis Combine Military Region and then transferred to District 2 in response to the Periphery Uprising in 2765. The Sixty-eighth survived the war and the Hegemony Campaign, and followed General Aleksandr Kerensky on the Exodus in 2784.
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.
The Division comprised two Brigades of Mechanised Infantry and a single BattleMech Brigade. Also attached was a Ground Aero Wing.
