Join us as we invade Greer Stadium on Saturday August 23rd, 2014 for STAR WARS night with the Nashville Sounds and have your picture made with members of the 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison and our sister organization the Rebel Legion- Corellian Base.

On Saturday July 19th, 2014 back by popular demand members of the 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison with members from the Rebel Legion-Corellian Base as well as the Mandalorian Mercs converged on the Governor Square Mall in Clarksville, TN . Kids and adults alike lined up in the center of the mall to have their photo op with the Star Wars characters. All proceeds for the event were to benefit Dreams & Wishes of Tennessee, a 501©(3) non-profit organization that grants wishes to individuals between the ages of 5-21 who have relapsed from cancer or have other life-threatening illnesses. The 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison and Rebel Legion-Corellian Base helped raise more than $1000 to grant wishes for children who have relapsed on cancer. Well done, troopers!

“A big THANK YOU” to the 501st Legion MidSouth Garrison and Rebel Legion-Corellian Base for helping to raise over $1000 to grant wishes for children who have relapsed from cancer.” – Governors Square Mall “Today was a GREAT day at the Governors Square Mall.

Over the past 15 months, the 501st Legion MidSouth Garrison and Rebel Legion-Corellian Base has raised over $5,000.00 to help make wishes come true for children that have relapsed from a cancer diagnosis. In my opinion that’s phenomenal!

On 7/11/2014 Troops from the 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison and the Rebel Legion’s Corellian Base put on an amazing show for Star Wars Night at the Bowling Green Hot Rods. The Imperial Shuttle Landed in Bowling Green Kentucky (KY) at 6pm, and the troops were prepared to go on the field at 7pm. Darth Vader threw out the first pitch, and then the troops mingled with the crowd of fans for about 3 hours. Support from the staff was excellent with a nice changing room that was stocked with ice water plus meal vouchers were also provided.

This event was a huge success…What a great night for the Bowling Green Hot Rods baseball fans with both Star Wars and fireworks. Thanks to all the fans that came out to see members of the 501st Legion-MidSouth Garrison from all over KY and TN.
