I've done movie premieres, conventions, birthday parties and more, and I still look forward to every time I get a chance to suit up. Nothing beats standing guard at the red carpet, watching the amazed looks from people as they arrive!

Here you'll find summaries of official troops, appearances and other events I've participated in.
