This was the 10th year that members of both Nar Shaddaa Base and the Midwest Garrison have done the "Death March" in Bartlett IL for their 4th of July Parade.

Traditionally, this parade seems to take place on the hottest day of the year, but this year we caught a break. The day before was in the 100's, but a cool front came through hours before we were set to stage for the parade and we ended up with highs in the mid 80's....it was still Hot...but nothing like the days prior.

This photo shows the many faces of Nar Shaddaa....even though not everyone in the photo is wearing a Rebel costume, they are still all present (and one or two future) members of the Base.



Yes....even Darth Vader himself is also a Rebel Fleet Trooper and part of Renegade Squad.

Thanks to all of our Rebels who came out..
and for the family of Steve Mamman who marched bravely for 2 miles carrying our banner...

We marched behind this group of unknowns....lol...




Some favorite photos from the parade:

Found out yesterday that the groups received a $450.00 donation from the parade organizers for our participation in this event...
the $$ will be going to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation..

and

each year forward, we will receive a donation if we show up.

We have been told by many that a lot of people come to this parade just to see us.

The Rebels have always participated in this event, but were usually busy with marshmallow wrangling (we pass out marshmallows donated by TK 118's employer).

This year Nar Shaddaa Base stayed in formation...
and also this year we had some great face characters in Janine Jender as Leia, Conor Markle (future recruit) as Luke, Mike Olsen as Obi-Wan, Samantha Scholl as Arena Padme, and for a time we had Chris Schwarz as Anakin...
so...
for the first time...
we had people along the parade route cheering for the Rebellion..

Very Happy
