Disaster Response unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first resonders to reapidly deploy emergeny response teams.
I discovered this group at the weather ready fest in St. Louis today. I met Benjamin Blackwell who told me about this group started by General Stanley A. McChrystal USA (Ret.). The mission is to assist communities critically affected by disasters. It is an opportunity for veterans to find a renewed sense of purpose, community and identity while using their skills with Team Rubicon. Check it out https://teamrubiconusa.org/
Ben and I talked about all the bad news that we hear about, well it's always followed with the good news of humanitarian response. My experience from the OKC bombing to F-5 tornadoes, most recenlty Hurricane Harvey, the overwhelming response from around the world is positive. Most people want to help and this might be an organization you want to be part of, visit TeamRubiconUSA.org/join-the-team to find out more. You don't have to be a vet just be part of the good work they do! #teamwork
