    Hi i was wondering if you could point me in the right direction. I am looking for Star Wars fans that might send my son a birthday card or maybe a photo of them dressed up? I am having a hard time finding a fansite I keep getting bounced around. He will be 5 Dec 31st. He had Autism and a love for Star Wars that never ends. He was considered a mute and his first words were Darth Vader he could name almost every character before he could ask me for a cup of milk. He has overcome a lot and i would love to surprise him with something that would mean the world to him any info would be greatly appreciated thank you for your time! [IMG]

    I see by your profile that you're in Oklahoma. Anybody know any 501st members in OK? I know some people in Arkansas, and it doesn't take much to persuade them to dress up and visit fans like your son. I bet if you google 501st Oklahoma, you'll find some people to help you out.

    I think Sarge is absolutely on the right track. Those 501st people are really phenomenal. I bet if you sent them a note explaining what you had in mind they would be able to organize something or steer you in the right direction.

    Here's the main 501st page

    Here's their contact form page

    Here's their message boards (Might be the perfect place to start actually)

    And per Sarge's suggestion, here's the page for the 501st chapter covering Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas.

    I wish you the best of luck, and if you have success please come back and share it with us.

    All I have to add is that this sort of thing is pretty much the reason the 501st Legion exists.

    The documentary Star Warriors about these dudes blew my mind.
