How come you don’t have ID numbers like the 501st Legion?
Members of the 501st Legion are issued unique four-digit ID numbers, such as TK-0421. When our club was officially founded in 2001, we did have ID numbers, but dropped them in early 2002. Members felt that ID numbers were more appropriate for the 501st because they represented faceless, nameless shock troops while the Rebels were a group of individuals with names and faces. The issue has come up several times over the years, and the membership has always voted against the idea.
Some detachments, such as Rebel Legion Starfighter Command, do issue three-digit ID numbers to members of individual Squadrons.
