Brothers and Sisters Some of you may have heard about this Queen Creek young man on the news. Jacob Priestly has mitochondrial disease and collects birthday cards.

Jacob turns 15 on August 28th we could really cheer up a young man who is fighting a terminal illness. He is wishing for 100,000 birthday cards.

I was thinking I could get a card we all sign it and put in some of our trading cards, stickers or patches.

Hello everyone from Garrison Tyranus, in Northern Virginia.  I recently finished a 4th of July troop in my hometown of Purcellville, VA.  On my way to the troop I ran into one of your own: Bill Warner.  After completing the parade, I fetched him from his sister-in-laws, (whom he was visiting on vacation with his family,) and brought him to my house for a late lunch with my family.  It was great to meet Bill and his family and I just wanted to put in a good word for him.  501st Legion, family and brothers in arms!

BTW, here's a picture of me and the other TK that arrived on the scene in style!

OH MY GOSH I LOVE THAT GUY!!! Thanks Solomon. 🙂

Holy Carp, it's Bill!!!

Best thing about meeting Bill was seeing his armor making videos that he showed me. I was most impressed with his vacuum form table!
