501st Legion Honorary Members Inducted by the MWG

As the 501st Legion continues to reach out and touch the lives of fans, it also seeks to recognize those who have contributed their time, skills and talents to the Star Wars saga in some special way. There are also many friends of the Legion who may not have specifically worked for Lucasfilm, but who have shown tremendous support of the 501st and Star Wars fandom. Those listed on this page have been presented a custom plaque by the Midwest Garrison, commemorating their relationship with the 501st Legion.
