Gerald Home with Darth Vader

On November 6, 2011 troops representing the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base made their first appearance at the SouthCoast Toy and Comic Convention in FairHaven, MA. One of the featured guests was the 501st Honorary Member Gerald Home who held a panel for the guests, with a Biker Scout keeping the room secure, about his experience with the Star Wars films as well as the important and wonderful work the 501st does for charity. Guests of the con were able to pose with our members and learn about our organization. The Department of Social Services, Foster Families division will be receiving a donation from SouthCoast Toy and Comic, in the name of the 501st New England Garrison for our appearance.
