DID YOU KNOW?

Geonosis is less than a parsec away from Tatooine!



501st Trivia

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, there used to be a 3rd Platoon known as “Decimate”. Due to heavy losses accrued during operations, among other factors, the platoon’s existence was decimated, and later rebuilt. Now they are known as the “Trench Platoon”, due to heavy entrenchments and being defense oriented during operations.

RTO

"The RTOs are maintaining well, we finally have all of the platoon RTOs in Avalanche at the rank of Corporal, a first in a long time. In addition to this, I will be resigning on the 28th of August due to real life commitments and stepping down to inactive reserves as a veteran trooper until I can find the time to get back into the unit properly. It hasn't been an easy decision to make however I've enjoyed every minute leading the RTOs and progressing the MOS to what it is today.

Also Ewik is Estonian." - CI-O Roadboy


Zeta

News Writers

The News Team has gone through some significant changes in the last week. We've done away with articles and newsletters being tied together to help us reach a much higher quality for our stories that we produce. We want to ensure we have high quality articles with important information regarding the internal structure of the 501st Legion. This move also allows us to further delegate information inside the news team much quicker than before. We are always looking for feedback, so we've opened polls and comments, which can be found below every posted news article.
