  1. What is his name? I may have spoken to him already
  2. Yes I am already registered for Carolina garrison. (Gastonia NC here) But didn’t get a straight forward answer from the event coordinator. I have also posted in the garrison forums and have not received any replies.
  3. So what are the rules concerning volunteering while waiting on your kit/approval? I’ve been told it’s a great way to meet garrison members but don’t know the actual rules around it?
  4. A very good friend of mine passed away almost 2 years ago. His name was Ward Godwin and was working to become a part of Talon Clan for the mando mercs. I didn’t know a lot about this group at the time but he had been spending a great deal of time with these guys and I felt like they deserved to hear the news. They thanked me for letting them know and that was that. Until 4 of them showed up to stand at attention at his casket during his funeral. That’s what made me wonder exactly what it was that they did and what they stood for. After speaking with a couple of the members, I found out about their charitable contributions and all of the amazing things that they did. They informed me that they were a part of several groups that they were involved with, the 501st being the largest and that they sometimes overlap. The costuming seemed a little restricted to me in the mercs ( for obvious reasons) but I did like how the stormtroopers looked. Two weeks after Wards funeral, I ordered a TK suit. Knowing that they sometimes take a while, I waited. And waited. And waited. To the point to where I completely forgot about the suit. And then this time of year rolled around to where ward was on my mind. A month ago ago I called the supplier to see what was up with no real success, and after some back and forth I got a refund. I am now currently waiting on another suit from WTF and am extremely excited to be a part of this amazing community that my friend was a part of. Because of him I wouldn’t have known what it is that this group does. And I will always be grateful for that. So this is Derek saying hello and thank you guys for being an inspiration in so many ways.
