The URNA Southwest (SW) Campaign was a military campaign waged by the United Nations Space Command during the Battle for Earth at the end of the Human-Covenant War. By November 10, 2552, the Covenant had began to excavate and occupy built-up positions centered at Free-fire Area OZONE in Arizona, United Republic of North America. On November 17, Covenant battlenet cohesion broke with the departure of the Prophet of Truth through the portal to Installation 00. UNSC forces took advantage of this windfall and began a counteroffensive. On November 19, UNSC flagword LUX was declared and a UEG emergency evacuation broadcast was initiated in anticipation of a tactical nuclear deployment against shielded enemy positions at OZONE, which followed shortly after. On December 3, Fleet Admiral Harper directed Operation: MARSH FLASH, which successfully eliminated clusters of high-value Jiralhanae leadership attempting to activate an artifact at OZONE.[1]
