Amptrooper

Hello again! Been a while!

Recommended Posts

Hello every one! So it has been quite a while since I have posted anything here. So I wanted to say Hi and show y'all what I have been doing.

I still have work that needs to be done on my leg so some days are better then others.

Anywho, As some of you know I was working on getting and building Star Wars StormTrooper armor and joining the 501st (a world wide Star Wars Costuming group). Well, thanks to a great person donating enough money to get everything for the costume, it is now a reality. I have been trooping as the AmpTrooper for a year now! I have also been elected in the recent elections as the squad leader for our local group. Trooping has been a blessing! I love meeting other amputees and people with handicaps. Other people have said just seeing me has brought them inspiration and joy! That is great!

This whole thing isn't about me, it is about what the AmpTrooper means to other people. Even though trooping for me is very hard and it puts me down for about a week it is still a blessing and I will continue to do it.Here are some pictures: (Click the picture to see the full size)

So, that is a little of what I have been up too. To see more pictures and updates you can friend me on Face book. I think I am the only AmpTrooper there! ;) LOL!

I hope to be on here a little more this year. Just have a lot to do with being squad leader and all. But i do miss it here!

God bless!

Good to have you back Corey. I've kept up with you somewhat on FB.

Life on one leg does tend to use us up faster than the abled. I go like a house on fire, then suddenly all my energy just goes. I have to rest more often. Age might have something to do with that, but I prefer to blame the leg. LOL

Great pics.
