The Mud Jumpers were a group of clone troopers attached to the 224th Division of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems.
In the year 22 BBY, the Mud Jumpers aligned themselves with the Mimbanese, who were under the leadership of Iasento. They promised the natives freedom when the Separatist invaders were repelled from Mimban. The Mimbanese were eager to help, and accepted modern weapons and training from the Mud Jumpers to form the Mimbanese Liberation Army. The Mud Jumpers and the Mimbanese fought to drive the Separatist invaders from Mimban and succeeded.
While fighting, they received a shout-out from the host of the holographic Grand Army of the Republic music broadcast. By 10 BBY, the Mud Jumpers were engaged in a conflict with Imperial forces trying to invade Mimban for it's valuable mining resources. The Mimbanese Liberation Army fought with them, wanting to rid their planet of Imperial presence.

- ↑ 2.0 2.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and "Bombad Jedi" to the year 22 BBY. Since places "Rookies" between Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and "Bombad Jedi," it can be assumed that the events of "Rookies" also take place in 22 BBY.
