Created in 2193, the Citadel Military Act is a law passed to create an army for the council. The act began development after true and careful consideration of the building threats in the galaxy and the scarcity of the Spectres. The act was coined by Ambassador Maia Calaroy who witnessed first hand after the destruction left after the geth invasion of Eden Prime in 2183. The army began development after a second and more large-scale Reaper attack on the Milky Way. Not until 2200 was the Citadel Military created.
