We all love popular culture, but few of us use it to do good in the world. In this Missions that Matters episode, we got to sit down with a member of the Red Sands Patrol, the El Paso, TX squad of the global organization: The 501st Legion. Dressed as Stormtroopers, Tie Pilots, Vader, and more, the 501st Legion uses their love of Star Wars to give back to their communities and bring the community together through their love of the franchise. Yes, they even work with rebel scum.
This interview is reflective of the West Texas Squadron of Star Garrison and specifically the activities and events of the El Paso chapter.
All music used is by John Williams and owned by the Walt Disney Company.
