It is with great consternation that I must report a defection from the ranks of the Imperial Stormtroopers of the 501st Garrison in Georgia.
Forces of the Georgia Garrison were making their annual run to Dallas, GA for the birthday of Honorary Trooper Thomas Mills when they discovered he no longer chose to don his Stormtrooper Armor.
When questioned by Admiral Daala as to why he was not in uniform he stated he was sick and tired of the low pay and the lack of advancement opportunities in the service of the Empire.
As such he has decided to go rogue in order seek his fortune as a bounty hunter having accepted an apprenticeship with none other than the legendary hunter, Boba Fett.
Thomas received an advance in pay for his first contract in the form of an image of his new instructor as painted and signed by none other than renowned Imperial Artist, Christian Waggoner.
While Thomas is no longer on the payroll aside from the occasional contract proffered by Lord Vader, they showed there were no hard feelings and took a moment to force-choke Thomas’ Mom for suggesting that he had already eaten too much ice cream.
Graciously, Lord Vader has commanded that there will be no disintegrations this time and Thomas is free to pursue his dreams of becoming a mercenary for hire to the highest bidder.
Happy Birthday Thomas! We wish you the best in your endeavors and appreciate your past and future service to the Empire!
In Service to the Empire and With Unquestioning Loyalty,
