*Apologies for not being able to make the whole page dark, but we worked hard to make what we could dark-mode themed. To get the rest of the page dark, you'd have to reach out to SOAR who made myTroop to see if you can convince them to let us have an option to make the whole site (including other pages) have a dark theme.
