Once again the Midwest Garrison was asked to attend the Misericordia Family Fun Fest! Thousands of adults and children came to this amazing event. It was quite large and we all had a chance to mingle with everyone in attendance.
This year was a bit more challenging as the rains kept threatening the continuation of the event. But we mustered on and trooped it out in the rain.
I'm real proud of what we accomplished on this day. Each trooper really deserves a special nod for sticking it out as long as they did! I think people tend to forget that we do this voluntarily with no compensation. I feel strongly that other people who aren't 501st, may not have done what these men and women did, for nothing.

I applaud each of these troopers for a job well done! Thank you ALL for bringing many laughs, hugs, and 'facebook pictures' to sooo many people.

Till next year gang!

TROOP! For a cause. What do YOU troop for?
