The 501st’s Green Mountain Squad made a wish come true in Rutland

The 501st Legion’s Green Mountain Squad trooped earlier this week in Rutland, Vermont to help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The recipient was Ryan Farrington, a high school student, whose wish was to go to Disney World in Florida. Members of the costuming group were on hand to let him know that the wish was granted.

The audience got an early start on the cheering when Darth Vader came into the auditorium, spending some time getting his audio equipment functioning well before being joined by the guest of honor.

The cheers were deafening, however, when Ryan was wheeled into the gymnasium, showing off the leg braces with the Darth Vader design that showed his fandom.

After the presentation, Ryan posed with various members of the Galactic Empire, alone or with family. He requested a final photo with just him and Vader.

Bad guys doing good.
