Unit History Pages
Here we keep track of when the mighty Garrisons, Squads, Detachments, and Outposts were formed to better occupy this planet...
- 1998 - answering the rapid development of 501st membership, Albin Johnson improvises a system patterned after the occupying armies of the Roman Legion: large units are to be called Garrisons. The first Garrisons are Eastern, Western, and Central Garrisons in the U.S. Areas staked out outside the U.S. adopt Garrison names from their country names, notably UK Garrison, Japanese Garrison, Canadian Garrison, and German Garrison.
