The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

So get this, One day I was Sent on a Mission in the Clone wars to Scout a Planet Called Raxus. The Amount of Battle Droids there were emensins, as a ARC trooper from the 501st I was tempted to start shooting them. But I was under instructions not to engage if unnecessary. Now I Had two objectives that day. One destroy the main communication rely for the planet, secondly do some damage to the senate building and if I could get some information that would help an invasion. I was sent there after the commandos got killed, typical. Clone Commandos in my opinion were clones that never made it good enough to an ARC trooper. So there I was, sneaking though enemy lines, When I saw 2 Droid Commandos I grabbed a thermal Detonator, primed it and threw it. But of course you realise, what are you doing! Should of used a droid popper. When the explosion happened, One of the Droids was destroyed along with a group of CIS admirals. The other raised the alarm I was out there. So after that I had about 200 odd B2 Battledroids chasing me in a park with most of them firing at me. At the some time there a some stupid protest about the war going on in the same park and they helped me escape at the cost of there lives. So after an uneventful bombing of they main comm array, The next target was the Senate. Lucky for me they had tighted security up due to my little accident earlier. I was thinking, this is were fun begins. I put my arc trooper amour on and decided to reach the building the only way possible, though the swears. After the most disgusting hour of my life as a clone. I went in and went in all guns a blazing, after killing everyone in the room. I snuck up the though the ventilation shafts, began to access the main computer and downloaded the details on the planets defences. But then who should come in the room but Count Dooku himself, he was talking to Holo transmission to a hooded figure who sound oddly like someone I knew. So I Whip out my gun thinking, If I Kill Dooku, I will be known as the Best Clone trooper ever. But then Lightning started shooting out of his hands and hitting me. For a moment it went blank. But I some how shot dooku which gave enough time to escape. Thinking I had killed him I ran to and set of explosives all over the building. Being chased out of the Main Entrance, All guns blazing. Droids everywhere and no hope of escape, certainty of death. When suddenly a ARC-170 came bursting out of the sky. after it destroyed the Droids it picked me up and My Fellow clone saved me. On our way back he said his Name was Odd Ball, afterwards I joked It was just another typical day for us. Morale of this story Kids. Never Send a Clone Commando to a Arc Troopers Job

That's a very good story you've got there, could use some work though. But still pretty good, I like it.
