On March 16, 2008, the newly-formed Jundland Wastes Squad of the Dune Sea Garrison marched in Tucson’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade! This was the first year the Dune Sea Garrison entered the parade and the first large event for the Jundland Wastes Squad since its formation on January 14th 2008. The Jundland Wastes Squad marched the 3 mile route with Stormtroopers escorting Lord Vader, backed up by a Clone Trooper, Jango Fett, Darth Nihilus, and even Jedi Masters. The event attracted more than 10,000 people and the JWS proved very popular as we were greeted with cheers, waves, and endless pictures!
