History

Around the year 22 BBY,[1] during the onset of the Clone Wars, the 224th was deployed to the planet Mimban to fight for the Galactic Republic.[2] They fought alongside the 44th Special Operations Division, another unit of the Republic's clone trooper army led by a Captain Sharp, and its squad of Devil Dogs.[3] During the battle, the Mud-Jumpers of the 224th received a shout-out from the robotic host of a musical program on the Grand Army of the Republic broadcast HoloNet channel. The shout-out, dedicating the following song to the group, was heard by other clone troopers[2]CT-26-1409, CT-26-6958, CT-27-5555,[4] "Nub," "Droidbait,"[5] and "Cutup"—stationed at a listening post on the moon of planet Rishi.[2]
