- "This next one goes out to the Mud-Jumpers of the 224th, slugging it out on Mimban. Keep your heads down and your seals tight, boys."
- ―The host of the Grand Army of the Republic broadcast
The 224th was a unit of clone troopers that served in the Grand Army of the Republic at the beginning of the Clone Wars. Among their ranks was a squad of troopers known as the Mud-Jumpers. Around 21 BBY, the 224th was involved in a battle on planet Mimban alongside the 44th Special Operations Division and its Devil Dogs squad.
Around the year 21 BBY, during the onset of the Clone Wars, the 224th was deployed to the planet Mimban to fight for the Galactic Republic. They fought alongside the 44th Special Operations Division, another unit of the Republic's clone trooper army, and its squad of Devil Dogs. 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—"Echo," "Hevy," "Fives," "Nub," "Droidbait," and "Cutup"—stationed at a listening post on the moon of planet Rishi.
