David Johnson, TK-6437 of the Black Ice Squad of the Wisconsin Garrison. This recognizes David's efforts in going above and beyond and consistently making a difference to those with special needs and making sure they feel special themselves. Well done, David, and congratulations! Our runner up this month is Emily Zalewski, CC-9529 of the Old Line Garrison. Emily has stepped up and filled several key roles within her garrison as well as donating her time and artistic skills. Congratulations, Emily, and to all of our Legion Trooper of the Month nominees! Keep up the great work in the name of the Empire!
