Toys for Tots, Toys R Us Columbia, SC November 4, 2006
The 501st Legion has been helping with toy drives for over five years now. R2-KT joined in and helped the Marines this year by entertaining the crowds at the start of the holiday shopping season. The Carolina Garrison held a great event, complete with jawas who couldn't keep their hands off our intrepid droid.

Me posing with R2-KT. Notice the Ewok. A fellow trooper loaned me his hollowed-out Ewok and I buried the RC inside its guts. I looked pretty silly carrying a bear around all day, but none of the kids could figure out who was controlling R2!
