"I’ve just made a deal that'll keep the Empire here forever."
At Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, members of Garrison Titan inducted Corey Dee Williams as an Honorary Member of the 501st Legion!
Corey, the son of Billy Dee Williams, was his father's stunt double in Return of the Jedi, as well as the costumed actor behind Jabba the Hutt's henchman "Klaatu." He has always been very supportive of the Star Wars franchise and the 501st Legion, so we are very proud to finally have the Son of Calrissian join our ranks as an Honorary Member!
Welcome to the Fighting 501st Legion, Corey!

On the 9th of April, 2015 Janice Decker (ID 5259) of the MidSouth Garrison passed away after a brief but fierce battle with leukemia. As a respected member of MosNooga, Janie was considered the Squad’s Grandma. Always happy and full of life, Janie’s vibrant smile and joyful demeanor allowed all those who came to know her feel like family.
We now smile too, as we remember Janie and add her portrait to the 501st's Hall of Eternal Legionnaires.
