Throwback Thursday is here!!
For many, the origins of the 501st are steeped in a little bit of mystery. Albin Johnson and Tom Crews first appeared on the trooping scene in 1997 with the release of the Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition in theaters. Columbia, SC was completely taken aback and an international community formed.
The documentary, Heart of an Empire, takes a look deeper into not only the origins of the 501st Legion but into what drives troopers to wear this armor and make themselves targets of ridicule at times.
Take a look!
