The United States Military , officialy known as the United States Armed Forces , are charged with defending the people of the United States of America from hostile military forces, be they foreign states, terrorists, or killer robots. It is known as the most powerful military force known by the world because of its advances in technology.
They have a habit of getting involved in the Autobot/Decepticon war on Earth because, most of it takes place in American soil. Plus, a lot of Transformers disguise themselves as various US military vehicles.
An army base was attacked by Nemesis Prime, who was mistaken for Optimus Prime by the base personnel. As such, the military issued a destroy-on-site order for all the members of Team Prime. Military forces later arrived at the MECH base from which Nemesis Prime was controlled, and confiscated MECH's equipment, Nemesis Prime included. However, all the MECH personnel escaped, including the badly injured Leland Bishop.
As a result of the Nemesis Prime attack, Agent Fowler was called in to deliver a report to General Bryce. During this meeting he revealed that MECH's leader was a disgraced Special Tactics colonel, and that it's membership-consisting of men in full body uniforms that disguised all distinguishing features-might be currently enlisted Special Tactics officers loyal to the discharged officer. Fortunately, the result of the hearing was that Optimus Prime's name was cleared, due to him appearing and addressing General Bryce when Bryce was fully aware that his evil duplicate was inoperable and in storage.
Agent Fowler had the whole military mobilized and sent its forces in many attempts to attack Megatron's fortress Darkmount but was almost immediately destroyed by the fortresses' fusion cannons. The generals then attempted to launch nuclear strikes on that fortress but Fowler keeps on reminding them about the civilians' safety in Jasper as long as he can.
