Kristy Kiirlund was the commanding officer of the Third Lyran Guards Division in 2765.[1]

History[edit]

The Third Lyran Guards Division, originally established as the divisional headquarters for the Twenty-first through Thirtieth Lyran Guards regiments, by the mid-twenty-eighth century the number of regiments commanded by the Third had dropped to six as a result of regiments being destroyed or disbanded. Despite the diminished combat strength of the Third, the division had established a reputation as being the home for the Lyran Guards' rising stars whilst commanded by Leutnant-General Kristy Kiirlund in the 2760s. The Third Division was also responsible for conducting Operation HOUND DOG, a division-level deployment that saw all seven of the Third's regiments deploy into the inhabited Circinus system, hunting for pirates. Whilst the Free Worlds League declined to provide any troops or observers during Operation HOUND DOG - the League considering the Operation to be nothing more than a "snipe hunt" - the Star League Defense Force dispatched a small team of observers to accompany the Third, which was successful in tracking down pirates using Circinus as a base of operations. By 2765 the various regiments of the Third were back up to full strength after taking relatively few casualties during the campaign.[1]
