The New Republic 5th Marine Corps is assigned to the New Republic Second Fleet and headquartered at the New Alderaan military garrison on Ord Mantell. It's original nickname, ‘Ever Steadfast’, was also known as ‘The Ones who Hold’ due to their heroics at the Battle of Hoth. The corps is currently under the command of Major General Roagen Vakren.
The original Fifth Corps made their name anew during the Battle of Hoth while holding off the Imperial Ground assault, an act they paid dearly for. The corps was derived from original guerilla units comprising the Rebel Alliance Army. In the wake of the Imperial fall, and theirs, Major General Antilos decided that while the honorable deeds of the previous units would be acknowledged in the Marine Corps Headquarters, the newly re-christened unit would have the opportunity to create their own history.
