High Recognition for our Trooper

Recently, Command Staff nominated one of our Troopers for Legion Trooper of the Month for November 2017.  While he was not chosen, he did receive second place out of 19 troopers who were nominated... which happened to be the largest pool of nominations in one month all year.  The Trooper that won, took a month from their life to go down and help the residents of Puerto Rico after being hit by two hurricanes in a row.  While those actions were not for the "betterment of the Legion", we here in Corellia feel our Trooper deserves recognition toward his efforts for the betterment of our slice of the Legion!!
