    HappyTrooper's Mission Journal - 45 Troops

    2 more missions chalked up: March 30th, 2019: I attended a local elementary school's fundraiser carnival. It was a beautiful day to be patrolling outside, and a wonderful turnout. Lots of Star Wars fans here, and the kids were very well behaved. The local fire and rescue gave me a tour of their state-of-the art ambulance. April 7th, 2019: April 7th, 2019: The Empire was out in full force during Casey’s Automotive Car Show & Spring Fest. There were some magnificent cars on display, including a DeLorean WITH a flux capacitor! Over $7300 was raised by Ellie’s Hats, a local charity that assists children who are battling cancer. I brought R2 to the event and he found a car that he fell in love with:

    Where did the reference photos go?

    I'm with you Bobby. When I was building my armor and backpack, I had those page bookmarked and looked at them FREQUENTLY. Apologies for the delay getting them back up. Hopefully future generations will use them as much as you and I did!

    Sorry for the delay everyone. I have re-written the pages with the content. The links have changed, so anything that you had bookmarked won't work You can go to the MEPD.net home page, and click on the CRL menu option. If you scroll down through the basic CRL, you'll see the S.W.A.T. links...that has all of the Pandatrooper images. Here is the link: http://www.mepd.net/?page_id=867

    February 22nd, 2019: Pack 910 of Chantilly, VA had a Star Wars themed Blue & Gold banquet. R2 and I were invited to attend. These young men were very well behaved, and the Scout Masters were wonderful to work with. They did an outstanding job with organizing the event, and also with their creative decorating...specifically a death star hall entrance made out of paper. This was a terrific event

    I know what you are talking about, I will see if I can find them and get them back online.

    Be vigilant! Potential SPAM from MEPD.net

    Hey Troopers, We are working on tightening up our forum email security. A few days ago, one of our brothers received a peculiar message, supposedly from the MEPD forums, only it wasn't. It was a spoofed message. No damage was done and we can confirm that it wasn't from the forums. We are working with the 501st web hosting team to ensure that all of our records are in place for secure email. In the event that you receive a strange message from forum@mepd.net, please do not click on any of the links. If you are concerned, or think its serious, please notify me via forum message and we can work together. Again, we'll get this straightened out shortly. Thank you for your service, and your patience.

    R2 and I attended troop 1154's Star Wars themed Blue & Gold Scout Banquet in Ashburn, VA. Plenty of young recruits available for the Empire...they even let us dive into their free taco bar after the event.

    R2 and I were invited to a very special young man's 5th birthday party. This little guy has autoimmune encephalitis...he has his days, but he's kicking it in the rear. He wanted a Star Wars (bad guy!) character to come to his party...R2 and I jumped at the opportunity. This kid was awesome. I had R2 covered up under a blanket in his family room (obviously hard to hide him). I made an entrance up his stairway in my Sandtrooper armor, he ran over to me, no fear, took me by the hand, and said "I found the droid you are looking for!". Melted my heart. He's 5, but he knows his Star Wars. You should have heard him do Jabba and Salacious Crumb impressions. He can also do a good Yoda. Awesome troop. I brought over a Jawa costume, he was definitely ready to sell some droids.

    R2 and I were able to attend a "Monster Mash" party at a local elementary school. We setup a photo booth with a sci-fi background, and met many awesome costumers.

    Got a few more...trying to get to that 50 mark! On September 28th, 2018, R2 and I attended a fundraiser for a local science museum. We rubbed elbows with some of the patrons, and got to meet Dr Who. On October 6th, R2 and I attended the 14th annual Walk for Autism in Northern VA. This was the 3rd year in a row that I attended as a Sandtrooper. Always a terrific event. We had support from some other costumers as well.
