Trooper Spotlight: Flashheart

TR 66682 (Shadow Guard: TFU)

Name: JD Garrahy (aka Flashheart)

Legion ID: TR66682

What made you want to join the 501st? Helping people in need and to look damn good doing it. I love all things geeky and supported the 501st for a good many years, whilst having an overwhelming desire to one day join the ranks of the Redbacks. I love the comradery, the social aspects and the helpfulness that fellow members offer one another. All working together to help the less fortunate while bringing a smile to children and adult faces alike.

What costumes do you have?

  • TI – TIE Pilot: Reserve Pilot
  • TR – Shadow Guard: TFU

What is your most memorable troop? My first troop, Central Station, Brisbane City. Super nervous, didn’t know any of the fellow troopers and wasn’t really sure what i was in for. Within minutes of meeting everyone, it was like i was part of the crew. My first troop was memorable as i had Darth Vader, 2 x TK’s, 1 x FN and an IC. Everything i had wanted in a troop. It was from that moment i knew that i had chosen the right path.

What is your favourite Star Wars character? Ive always had a love for Galen Marek. His origins, his defiant nature, his use of The Force. The guy was just a force to be reckoned with (no pun intended).

Australia Day Brisbane Lord Mayor Achievement Award for Community Service

The Redback Garrison has just been awarded an Australia Day award from the Brisbane City Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, Achievement Award for Community Service and generally being awesome.

In attendance were Adam Lochowicz (Apok), our current Garrison Commanding Officer, Rick Oliver (cobra), our Garrison Executive Officer, Kevin Chamberlain (Kev Vader), our former Garrison Commanding Officer and current Regional Moff of Oceania and Colleen Spoljarevic (Tygress), our Garrison Charity Officer.

Without you guys and gals that don your armour on for charity events, hospital visits, fetes, birthday parties, weddings, conventions and our other big events, we would not raise the money we do nor have the impact on the community that we do.  Even at the Award Ceremony when we were announced, not only did the emcee and the mayor already know who we are and what we do, but so did a lot of the other award recipients.  We must be doing something right.

This is a proud moment in our garrison history. Congratulations to each and every trooper that has contributed to the greatness that is the Redback Garrison. Keep being awesome troopers.

Your extremely proud GCO
