Jedi at the Exchange coming to Grafenwoehr Exchange
U.S. ARMY GARRISON BAVARIA – The Force will most definitely be with families at U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria Oct. 29 thanks to the Army & Air Force Exchange Service.
“Jedi at the Exchange” will offer Disney-approved Jedi training – similar to that offered at Disney theme parks – for children ages 4-12.
During each session, Jedis-in-training will learn how to wield a lightsaber, be trained in the ways of the Force and receive an official certificate stating they have completed the training. Robes and lightsabers will be provided, though young Padawans may bring their own costumes if they so choose. The training session will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. inside the Tower Barracks Main Store.
“Star Wars mania is far from over,” said Steve Shaw, Tower Barracks Main Store Manager. “Events like these don’t just give our military families a sense of community, but an opportunity to bond over for what many families is a shared passion. This is truly what the Exchange is all about: bringing military families together through quality services and events.”
Parents may bring cameras to the event to photograph their junior Jedis, and select toys will be discounted on the day of the event.
More than 5,000 children participated in 21 Jedi at the Exchange events in 2015, which were held in anticipation of the worldwide release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
