As of 2032, the USCPF Chemical Corp’s function is the management, deployment, and use of chemical based weapons and nerve agents.
The Chemical Corps was founded by more hardcore officials in secret, shortly before the flash in 2032. Strictly speaking, the ‘chemicals’ used by the corps violate the geneva convention, but with the rising ACMF threat the government was getting ready for anything. Originally, the chemical corp’s function was to manage the chemical weapons dropped from aircraft before deployment. When the bombs finally dropped, the function of the corps was shifted from this to the deployment of ground based chemical warfare, turing massive aerial chemical bombs into smaller canisters and projectiles. The Chemical Corps has been attempted to be removed by USCPF leadership several times, all failing in their attempts due to what many assume might be corruption, bribery, and other shady business. Heavy restrictions were placed on the members of the Corps, allowing only those with near perfect scores on their mental examinations, in fear of misuse of the corp’s assets. The Chemical Corps is constantly under the scrutiny and examination from those higher up in the command chain, looking for any reason to disband the corps. The corps have to be extremely careful not to harm any civilians or friendly units, or at least make sure no one hears about it.

Platoon Leader: These men and woman command platoons. They are the bosses of the squad leaders.
Executive: The people in the Executive position manage lower ranks. In the chain of command, the Executive rank Is quite high. Since they're such a high rank, they're part of the elite decision making that takes place in the highest ranks of the CC. Executives try to make decisions that will benefit the CC, and not lead to it's shutdown, as the CC is already on thin ice with high ranks in the USCPF main group.
Deputy Commander: These people help manage the group and are second in command.
