Troop Report: Lightsaber Battle for Dexter

A 10-year-old boy with terminal cancer has a bucket list which included a massive lightsaber fight with as many Star Wars characters as possible. We joined forces with Rebel Legion and a local lightsaber group to make his wish come true at Balboa Park. I don’t think he expected so many of us to show up – the look of excitement on his face was priceless. We gave him some 501st swag and he said he was going to pin one of the buttons to his Cub Scout uniform. It was a touching night and my first experience doing a charity event with the 501st.
