    Hello everyone my name is Bob Holland. I've been around the 501st in my area for a few years now and finally finished my costume. I live in Louisville KY so I've been around the Derby City Squad pretty much since their inception. I'm extra stoked to get to bring Jawazilla to life and bring joy to the masses.

    Greg and Jim brought me here, blame them. Any who, I just moved to Knoxville from NY, was working on my armor with the ECG up there. Completed my DT with Greg down here, went on my first troop with Greg at Kingsport Conapalooza last month. Looking to hopefully submit soon, just fixing a few things beforehand. Hope to meet everyone soon.

    Hello everyone! My name is Aurore Bivins and I just received my ID number, 64808! I live in Knoxville, TN and joining the 501st has been a goal of mine for 15 years. Now that my ANH Staff Officer has been approved, I'm going to get started on my Kessel Run Qi'ra. It's a huge honor to be a member of this group. I want to thank everyone at the booth at Fanboy Expo for being so encouraging and helpful when it came to submitting my application and making me feel welcome. I would appreciate full access to the boards so I can start participating.

    Hey guys! I'm Laryssa, and I recently got my RL stripes in the Corellian Base end of January. Not in the 501st obviously, but Jyn may have a forged scan doc lying around that may say otherwise... I've known of the 501st/RL for years and have always wanted to join, but couldn't decide on a character until Rogue One. I've gotten to meet a handful of you all at a few events the past month or so -- it has been awesome, and everyone's been so welcoming! I'm looking forward to getting out there and doing more

    Hey guys and gals. Several of you know me in the Nashville area, as I have been tagging along to events and such for the last 2 or so years, but I will follow instructions and introduce myself. I'm Becki Moore. I am part of several costuming groups in the Nashville area including but not limited to the TN Ghostbusters, Cosplay Collective, Music City Order of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Nashville Avengers and so on. I'm looking forward to my next troop. See you all soon!

    Hey all! My name is Joe and I'm an active BB8 builder and have tagged along with a few R2 builders to a local con(fandom fest). I'm looking to get involved so I can bring my BB8 to some future events. Note: BB8 in the photo IS mine, R2 is not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi, My name is Aaron Paige, just got accepted into the 501st and MidSouth Garrison last night. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio and learned about MidSouth Garrison from my girlfriend who is a member here as well. I am requesting access to the message boards here to be able to get the most out of my membership through interacting with fellow members and staying informed on events and happenings as well as any other info surrounding the garrison and 501st in general. Excited to be a part of the group and looking forward to it all!

    Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!! Happy to be here! Yes!!! I am slowly putting that together...there are a lot of pieces parts, haha. I still need to order the armor, and I plan to do that from 850 Armor Works as soon as it's available! I haven't heard of this space station you created... was it anything like Tarkin's?

    Hello from Bristol, Virginia! I'm Jeremiah, living on the state line between Virginia and Tennessee. I'm close enough to several events in Tennessee that I figured I could join in occasionally. I recently joined the 501st as a Line Officer, and I'm excited to troop (hopefully) with some of you! Star Wars came into my life when was about 6-7 and it's made a huge, positive impact. It's great to be a part of something that can have lasting positive impacts on so many other people. -J

    Warrant Officers don't have rank bars. But that is a great place to get started...as I did. Upgrade the boots and add the rank bar to turn the warrant officer into a staff officer. Or swap the hat out for a navy trooper helmet. I have always enjoyed how versatile the officer corp components are. I think Robbie or someone higher up the command staff would have to give you access to the forum sections. Welcome to TN.

    Hey ladies and gents of the Midsouth Garrison! I am from the Southwest Virginia area, living in the small, small town of Pound, VA. I've been a massive Star Wars fan since seeing A New Hope at age 2. Although I am from Virginia, Pound is located literally five minutes from Kentucky and, at worst, an hour from the Tri-Cities which puts me a lot closer geographically to your garrison than the Virginia Tyranus Garrison members. I'm not a member of the 501st yet, but I hope to be a TK! I haven't begun building, but I have been researching quite a bit on the 501st database and also www.whitearmor.net to get tips and find resources, so hopefully I can begin my build soon. I found out about the 501st quite a while ago online and about it's activities at cons and also it's great charity work. I'm a fan of costumers and admire the incredible detail of the 501st's costumes as well the generosity of it's members to the community. I'd love to meet like minded people and other Star Wars fans and troop when I can! Thanks guys!

    Thanks for the heads up! What I really need help with in regards to the Mando is molding the armor. It's partially molded now but needs work. It's traditional vs boob. lol. Is there someone here who can measure and make vests? I do have access to the seamstress at my previous Clan but she is super busy. TIA

    Krista, we receive event request all the time, so by then, we might have something in the Franklin area. I'm also certain we could arrange something in the Franklin or Cool Springs area for that weekend if you and Sean wanted to meet some of the locals. There are a handful of troopers local to Franklin, TN (not to mention Nashville).

    Im Jason Vitala from Nashville, TN. Since I was 7 yrs old in 1977, Ive always dreamt of having/being a Stormtrooper. Now that Im all grown up, I can finally afford to make that dream come true. There are tons of sites online concerning info on this dream, so I decided to start here. I guess the first time I heard of, or saw, the 501st was probably during ROS release here in Nashville. I probably heard of the 501st prior to that, but more so in passing via mags and whatnot. The internet was still pretty young then and my income and interests were elsewhere. My first step is getting armor. There sure is a lot of garbage costumes out there, and from what Ive read here, eBay is one place you shouldnt look. I sure would appreciate any help procuring my first Stormtrooper armor. I want, ready to wear, ANH full armor including blaster. My budget is $2,000. Is that possible? I would like to attend a 501st event in my area just to see what is expected of me if I decide to join. Any help would be great. Thanks!
