To all the members of the 501st everywhere, I wanted to congradulate you all for a great showing at the 2007 Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California this morning!! The troopers did a great job of marching on the city of Pasadena considering they had no peripheral vision and had to stay in formation the whole way. I was very impressed with how they all looked on the TV screen. All those drills and practices paid off big time!! Great work!!!

I've always been a big fan of Star Wars and the Imperial Forces!!

I just wish they were able to carry their blasters. They almost looked naked without their trademark side-arms. (

Lance,

I am so happy that the 501st got some major publicity with the parade. That will go a long way for the charity work that you all do!!!

I wish I'd been there, I watched the live coverage, which was great apart from Bob Eubank's "get a job" comment, which was soon retracted after so many 501st people complained :) Some of the UK Garrison guys went over and took part, I'll be eternally jealous of them!!!
