May the 4th Be With You: Military Edition

According to Starwars.com, “One of the earliest known records of ‘May the 4th’ used in popular culture is in 1979. Once the Internet allowed Star Wars fans around the world to connect with one another, May the 4th soon became a grassroots tradition each year, with fans online and offline proclaiming it ‘Star Wars Day.’ Ultimately, as Star Wars Day was created by the fans, it is truly their day. Hosting movie marathons, sharing greetings on social media, cooking Star Wars recipes — there are no wrong ways to celebrate May the 4th, and each year we’re amazed at the creative ways that fans mark the occasion. With Star Wars alive like never before, we hope you’ll join in this year.”

For us here at Operation Supply Drop, while we love to exchange memes and tidings of “May the 4th Be With You” to our brothers and sisters, we also love to peruse the net for some of the great Star Wars + Military mashups.
