Dan Bergeron, TK-3967 of Wisconsin Garrison! Dan was recently diagnosed with cancer, and his treatments have confined him to home, but even as things have become difficult, he has helped three prospective new members to construct their costumes.
Dan draws inspiration from a young boy he met while trooping, whose cancer was in remission. That boy never gave up and fought on. Now, months later, Dan is in his shoes, fighting cancer, and remembers the lesson he learned: Never give up, and fight on! We're with you in your battle, Dan. Your courage and dedication to the Legion, even in the face of personal hardship, embodies the spirit of the 501st Legion, and we are honored to call you Trooper of the Month.
Our congratulations also go out to Arnaud Miralles (ID-1462) of French Garrison, Philipp Steinhauer (TD-7076) of German Garrison, and Steve Szyndrowski (ID-3052) of Midwest Garrison, who all displayed service to the Legion deserving of recognition! Keep up the good work, troopers!
