Troopers Make Merry at the 2016 Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Parade

::mission debrief start::

It is the one time of year that Imperial, Rebel, and Mercenary forces put aside their differences to be festive and celebrate the wondrous works of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in their annual Christmas parade. If only for a brief moment, these seemingly disparate entities come together as one to spread the holiday cheer. This year our forces even participated in the craze sweeping the holonet known as the #MannequinChallenge.

Happy Holidays!
