Our mission as a Squad is to represent the 70th Explorers Garrison; spread the love of Star Wars, sci-fi, and the art of costuming to fans of all kinds; and increase awareness of costuming in every corner of our territory as well as those remote territories that we visit while combatting the forces of the Rebel Alliance through massive acts of selfless charity.

SQUAD 66: THE TEMPLE RAIDERS is a unit within the 70th Explorers Garrison comprised of 501st Legion members in 20 counties in southwest Missouri .
