Outworlds Alliance President Mitchell Avellar initiated the Long Road Program in 3056, a sweeping series of reforms across the Alliance. As part of the Long Road Program, President Avellar received a temporary waiver from Parliament and hired mercenary companies to reinforce the Alliance Ground Defense Arm (AGDA). By 3058 Bammer's Bunch and the Thermo Police mercenary companies were two of five mercenary commands hired, stationed on Rudolpho and Tellman IV respectively.[3]

Between 3058 and 3064, Bammer's Bunch and the Thermo Police were chosen to be the foundation unit of the 1st Long Road Legion (1LRL) under the 2nd Alliance Air Wing. The former mercenary companies became the core of the Command Battalion and Chairman Seymore Hares of the Thermo Police was chosen as Legion's Commanding Officer. The Legion's Second Battalion was an armor battalion and Third Battalion was a reinforced infantry battalion. By 3064 the Legion was stationed on Lushann.[1]

In 3066, low morale in the Second Battalion almost led to defeat by raiders on Risin, but Chairman Roper was able to rally his troops.[4]

In 3079 the Legion was stationed on Jordan Weis, along with elements of the Fourth Alliance Air Wing; while Clan Snow Raven had notionally taken over responsibility for defending the Outworlds Alliance, the Grenadiers and the other Alliance Military Command units were still performing the majority of the garrison operations within the Alliance core worlds.[5]
