Old Republic, New Frontier
Republic Special Forces, commanded by Brigadier General Brightmark, Force Readiness Command has recently been created by the Republic to support Jedi in dangerous missions around the galaxy, as well as to have experienced individuals to combat enemy force users. Having looked back in the history of the Jedi Civil War, the Mandalorian Wars, and even beyond to the Great Sith War, Brightmark had noticed that there was a consistent disconnect between the functions of the Jedi Order and the doctrine and training of the Republic Military, that would lead to high casualty count and a severe drop in combat readiness.
The Jedi Council officially states that such a command is more likely to instigate conflict rather than deter it. However, with rumors of the Sith ressurgence spreading through the Galaxy, the Jedi are willing to accept FORREDCOM. If it can prevent the Jedi being involved in a conflict such as the Mandalorian Wars, than larger tragedies can be averted.
