Some sad news to report on today.

Today we add CJ to the Eternal Legionnaires of the The 501st Legion. He has been given TX-51695 posthumously as a member of the 70th Explorers Garrison.

On the 29th April of 2018 Christian John Collins passed away. “CJ” was aspiring to become a 501st member and had supported several troops in his own Shadow Scout armor. Sponsored by his father—who is also a 501st member—and the 70th Explorers Garrison, and in recognition of his son’s intent, Legion ID Number TX-51695 has been awarded to CJ Collins. CJ is survived by his younger brother Jeremy and his loving parents Rhodie and Chad (SL-6876.)
With love and respect we now clear the way for CJ to enter the 501st Hall of Eternal Legionnaires.

PLEASE be mindful and DO NOT post any spoilers in the threads on the Garrison forums ! One thread already had to be hidden so members would not have the movie spoiled.
