Team Rubicon

Some visitors here may not know about the charity Team Rubicon. They were founded in the midst of the Haiti earthquake by a former milblogger named Jake Woods. The charity uses the skills of military veterans for humanitarian missions. They have been all over the world and in several locations within the US. They have helped with tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding. They are currently in the Philippines and you can follow their mission on the blog.

If you have a Facebook account, they are uploading pictures and some of them are very graphic and disturbing, but please note that these veterans have many field triage skills that most people don’t. They know about logistics, search and rescue, improvising in the field, and intelligence gathering on the ground to help the overall mission of getting the Philippines back to normal.

Please consider donating to Team Rubicon as they send more teams to help with the devastation the poor Filipinos are going through. And please note, not only do these missions help the victims of natural disasters across the globe, they give veterans a purpose. This video was made last year when TR was helping with Hurricane Sandy on the east coast. It will bring you to tears.
