Summary write up:
Well with very short notice, we managed to pull together 7 Troopers, A Dummy Vader, and a
rebel pilot, And decorate 2 vehicles for this parade.

Kevin was blaring Star Wars music from his car, hung the 501st banner, and made a Dummy Vader
to sit in the passenger seat. He got a ton of looks.
Parade was to be 3/4 of a mile, but we all agree it was MUCH longer. It was very hot as well
but a great time was had by all.

Kids enjoyed seeing us, We got a lot of cheers and applause. We tossed out candy and made the
residents LOVE us!

Thanks to the guy who gave some of the troopers a ride back to the starting point. No one thought about this at the beginning!

Parade was taped for local cable. We will have a copy of it soon I hope.

THANK YOU very much to the troopers who came out with such short notice to make this event a
big success! Lets do this again next year!

I was looking through our Garrison's mission reports and found entries for ALL of our adventures at the Bartlett Independence Day parades. This is pretty cool! 2003
