With Star Wars Celebration VI just weeks away, it got this fan to thinking. Star Wars turned thirty-five this year. The 501st Legion turns fifteen. I mention the Legion because you write what you know, and the Legion is a ‘child’ of Star Wars so it lends some interesting contrast. It’s been fun watching the Legion grow from nothing and it’s always fascinating to me watch Star Wars evolve during most of my life. As a forty-something with five daughters, one of them sixteen, it made me look at these two entities in a different light.
