501stCast Minicast: Behind the Bucket Ep 1 – Jeffrey, SL-11907

Behind the Bucket Minicast: Episode I Hosts: Joe Mignano, SL/TI-12743 & Nicky Blum, DZ-8397 Guest:  Jeffery Hebert, SL/TI/ID-11907 Post-Production: Joe Mignano, SL/TI-12743 Welcome to a new minicast series for the 501stCast – Behind the Bucket. Each month we’ll be interviewing a 501st Legion member based on a nomination from the previous interviewee. For this first episode we’re starting with a member that Joe nominated – Jeffrey Hebert, SL-11907 from New England Garrison. From what we can tell he might be the first member recruited because of the 501stCast! He’s also, to our knowledge, the Legion’s first blind trooper. Shout out to Jill, TI-71411 of Garrison Excelsior
