Being deployed in the harsh desert climate of Tatooine requires a special type of soldier. In order to stay sharp, I train in a few different environments.
Sometimes a Sandtrooper needs to get away from the heat of the binary suns. The Empire takes care of its own, they built an ice rink next to the Mos Eisley Police Department. At the end of the day, troopers can put on their other set of armor and shoot a few pucks around.
When I REALLY need to escape the heat, I head for the ocean.
One day, I hope the Empire lets me double as both a Sandtrooper and a TIE pilot. I currently hold a single-engine-land pilot’s license, and I’m checked out in both the Diamond DA-20 and DA-40. One day, I’ll show them I have what it takes to fly a TIE fighter.
