    Hi Everyone! My name is Charity Miller, and I just moved to Lee County, VA from Tampa, FL. I am currently a member of the Florida Garrison/Tampa Bay Squad, but I have started the transfer process to the Midsouth Garrison. I live very close to the VA/TN border, so I am much closer to the Knox Eisley squad than I am to any Virginia squads. I have three approved costumes - Reserve pilot, TIE pilot and Zam Wesell. I know the timing is a bit weird with COVID, but I am hoping that as things open up, I'll get to start trooping again! I can't wait to meet you all!

    Hey everyone! My name is Nathaniel (Nate) and I am starting on my first 501st costume! A friend of mine Christian Dunham (TK-81170) got me interested and I am putting together an Imperial Staff Officer (non-Saga) uniform. I currently attend college outside of Nashville TN, but I'm from Chattanooga TN. Can't wait to get started!

    Hey Nate!!! Just stopping by to say hi and good luck and enjoy this process. I am by no means and expert with Imperial Commanders, I just TAKE orders from them. Even they make fun of me for being such a short Stormtrooper, but they know my skills. Someone with a better understanding of things for Commander will be here shortly. Oh, Welcome to the Imperial Academy!!!!! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Hey there! I’m Amber, and I recently moved back to the Johnson City/Kingsport area! I’ve introduced myself on this forum before, but that was a few years ago and nothing came of those early plans to join up. I’m currently in the process of sourcing an Imperial Staff Officer (Black) uniform, since my sewing skills are skills pretty mediocre. I’m also working on a Jawa just as a personal side project to start learning and hopefully move into making my own uniforms in the future! As far as my Staff Officer is concerned, I have my belt, code cylinders, and rank bar. My tunic/jodhpurs are with the tailor, and a hat is on the way. Just have to get the boot situation sorted! I look forward to meeting everyone again and hopefully being more active in the community this time around!

    You can also check out Crowprops, he makes high quality boots. I got my TIE boots and Kylo boots from him and they are awesome. He'll ask for your specific measurements, so they are custom to you.

    Hello everyone, My name is Devin Padgett (TK47501) from Dalton, GA. I am a new member of the 501st, and of the Georgia Garrison as of May, 2021. Most of the events happening in GA are in Atlanta or even further south, and being in the extreme northwest corner, I've missed out on many opportunities due to travel and timing. I would like to have the opportunity to participate with Midsouth Garrison in some events closer to home in the Chattanooga and Cleveland TN, areas as a guest. Thanks for your consideration!

    Welcome Hannah. We have a full squad of troopers in/near Knoxville... Knox Eisley Squad. Once events get back into full swing (once COVID-19 is contained to make them easier on people), I'm sure you will be able to meet many of them. Meanwhile, I'm sue many in the garrison will be happy to give you pointers and advise on your build.

    Hey everyone! My name's Hannah Waddell and I have begun my journey into joining the 501st (specifically the Clone Detatchment) with an ARC Fives Phase II build! I am located in Knoxville, TN and learned about the Garrison through the 501st website. I'm hoping to use this forum as a place to meet other members, bounce ideas off of, and hopefully have some help while doing my build!

    Hello there, I'm Thrax (aka Cruziness) I am a returning 501st member that has been re-activated from retirement recently as part of the Alabama 501st Garrison in Alabama. I live in the Huntsville, AL area and would like to join your events that are not too far from me if possible. I may have trooped with some of your members in the past. I have a 501st approved ESB Boba Fett and Arena Jango Fett and an active member in the Bounty Hunter's Guild: http://thebhg.net/ Here are some photos from a recent event in HSV at the Children's Early Works Museum: https://photos.app.goo.gl/qCE7Vndr9boeiyyo7 Here are photos of my Boba Fett: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Tq4QTeBsdMkYeyYB6 I also have an extensive tutorial on how I built my kit and the electronics that I added to them that I can share. I'm a member on the TDH, BFB, RPF, and BHG forums. I look forward to hanging out with you guys and sharing a love for the 501st, STAR Wars, and Costume Building. Hopefully, we can get our Garrisons trooping together. Cheers, DC aka Thrax aka Cruziness AL 501st: BH4548

    Always good to meet a Fett.... A few of us have come out to the Huntsville convention that happened a few years ago... pre-COVID-19. Once we have more events to troop, I'm sure you will come over and play with us more often. As long as there is no specific restrictions on the event, you'd be welcomed to join us for the few going on until then. We have a few of each, Jango and Boba, but there are still lots of opportunities for you to be either for MSG events. Jango images look good.

    Greeting fellow Legionnaires. I'm hoping to gain access to you forum so that I may troop when I travel in the territory. I've already met one of your members in Gatlinburg and I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to join events when I'm in the area. Thank you James

    Welcome Dylan. Before COVID-19, Clarksville had a fairly large number events, so once trooping is back to normal, there will be plenty of events in your neighborhood. We've had a handful of troopers in Clarksville area as well, so there are others. Naturally, you'd be able to drive to Nashville area to troop as well, and perhaps before if you want to be a handler/helper at events that do happen prior to getting your costume approved, or troop anywhere else in TN. Once you get your costume approved, you could also look for events in Kentucky as well (Blue Grass Garrison) if that is convenient for you. Either way, this is definitely the best time to get your costume ready. Much like stormtroopers and biker scouts, you really can't have too many TIE pilots at events. They are iconic, and usually, one of the few costumes even the most basic and casual Star Wars fan can identify ---when they don't call you "Darth Vader" if we don't have a Vader, that is. BTW: You might consider starting with the TIE Reserve. It is a good, relatively easy costume to assemble and get approved if you refer to the CRL (Costume Reference Library) on the main 501st website. It is a good stepping stone towards a TIE pilot. Then, start working on the armor, chest box, hoses, and helmet. Once they are ready, submit the full pilot for approval. If it gets approved, you'll have two costumes and can alternate as you see fit. A lot of the Imperial uniforms use the same components, so looking at the CRL entries could help you find others that you may like that are similar... and use the same parts you already have (or will want) for your main TIE pilot. The Officers Corp and the Jolly Roger Squadron for pilots must have had the same suppliers.

    Another rook for the Flight Deck! I'm just down the road outside Nashville. My first 501st approval was a New Hope TIE pilot. Happy to help in any way! Welcome and looking forward to watching your progress.

    I'm really glad that I'm not the only one in Clarksville! I'm very excited for when I get to start trooping.
