Task Force 219 is the remnants of Task Force 141, recruited U.S. Army Rangers, and recruited U.S. Navy SEALs. They are one of the most elite ground forces in the 13th Legion, falling behind ARC Troopers, Republic Commandos, and a few others.


Officialy created about 1 year after the events in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the recruiting for it has been underway since the raid on the russian airport when Shadow Legion Commandos "secured" the wounded body of former C.I.A. agent Joseph Allen from russian police. After they saved Allen from near certain death, he accepted their offer to join them. After that, they went on to find Simon "Ghost" Riley and Gary "Roach" Sanderson severly wounded and burned on a hillside near the Georgian-Russian border. A few months later, Riley, Sanderson, and Allen were able to convince the remaining Task Force 141 units to join them in the 13th Legion. The toughest part of the creation of Task Force 219 was getting The U.S. Ranger company Hunter Two-One into the force. After an extensive 9 month negotiation, they convinced Hunter Two-One and about 50 U.S. Navy SEALs into joining their friends from Task Force 141. After they were settled, the group was reorganized into Task Force 219 with Simon "Ghost" Riley as the leader.

Then about 2 hours after the departure of Shepard, Delta Squad found the burned bodies of Riley and Sanderson lying in a puddle of unburned gasoline.

They accepted and then proceeded to recruit the rest of the remnants of Task Force 141.

He was the second U.S. Army Ranger in Hunter Two-One to join The 13th Legion (Right after Pvt. J. Ramirez).
