【出撃レポート】10月13日 沖縄 Comic-Con

10月13日 沖縄米軍キャンプフォスターで開催された、Okinawa- Comic-Con に501st日本部隊が出撃しました。
501stにはブースが設置されており、完全に機能するR2-D2(Evan Lloydが作成)と501stに関する情報を備えた写真エリアをホストしていました。

Back in 2010, the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) on Okinawa hosted a Star Wars Day at the Camp Foster Library which the 501st and Jedi Order participated in. The event was a big success and the following year, the event morphed into a small local Comic-con. Since then it’s grown in popularity and attendance each year and eventually had to be moved to a larger venue at the Camp Foster Field House. The 2019 Okinawa Comic-con continued this tradition with the Field House filled with Japanese and U.S. comic/anime talent and many local comic/movie related vendors. The 501st also had a booth setup where we hosted a photo area which featured a fully operational R2-D2 (built by Evan Lloyd) along with information about the 501st. There was a steady line of Comic-con attendees dressed in a wide variety of costumes, including MANY Star Wars costumes, who wanted their photo with our Darth Revan and troopers. It was a great day for the forces of the Empire on Okinawa!
