  1. XOXO from the XO Around the Detachment Pam Rose Interview Trooper of the Month Troop of the Month Tip of the Month XOXO from the XO It has been too long since I have used this space to blather on about how great out little corner of the Legion interwebs is. Darth Life has had me by the short hairs for the first half of 2014 and the main reason I did not run for DL for a second term. There was a moment when I tried to step down at XO but Mathias shrugged me off in his usual Swedish way. I am now back to hitting reload on the new posts page obsessively and I like what I am seeing of la
  2. In Memoriam Around the Legion Around the Detachment Notable Troops Related News Off Topic Lance Starmer, SL-2640 of the 501st Legion, passed away on the 5th of June, 2014. Lance joined the 501st in 2000 as a member of the Empire City Garrison and later found his home in the Northeast Remnant. Lance always made trooping fun. He had an infectious smile and an uncanny ability to make the folks around him laugh. No matter what kind of day a person was having, Lance could make a comment about something from out of the blue, and you couldn’t help but feel better in his presence. H

  6. As mentioned here is the thread for the EIB Q&A from May's Newsletter. should you have a question post it and we will try to get it answered for you. IPM: What is the Expert Infantry Badge program and its vision? Daetrin: The Expert Infantry award program is captured as the second goal of our detachment charter, as I felt the program was so crucial to the detachment's success, it was imperative to write it in.

  11. Expert Infantry is Easy Around the Detachment Troop of the Month Related News ​Just for Fun Call to arms. There are 2526 TK's in the 501st. There are 370 EI's or about 14% of the Legion TK's. There are 114 Centurions, or 4.4% of the Legion TK's, or nearly 1/3 of all EI. Our goal is to get to at least 33% of the Legion to EI, or to about 842 EI. In other words, getting EI to go Centurion is not the problem. Getting base TK's to go EI is. So our push for 2014 should be to double the EI's from 350 to 700. I mean if every EI got just one other person to go EI, that would be a

  14. From the Detachment Leader XOXO from the XO From the PRO Around the Detachment ​Just for Fun Notable Troops Hello everybody! Last month was the time of the annual elections for the whole 501st Legion, including FISD. Although I found it unexpected, it turned out that I was elected the Detachment Leader of FISD for the forthcoming 12 months. For that I am grateful, and hope to carry the torch as well as my predecessors. I have a few ideas I would like to implement during my time, most of which are still just ideas however, and will be announced at a more appropriate time. But one t
