Lately, we hear more about helping our military members transition. With nearly a million projected to enter the civilian world in a 5-year span, "opportunity" is going to be the key word. Organizations are cropping up to assist the troops in translating their unique assets: unwavering dedication to task, adaptabilty despite obstacles, and exemplary leadership skills, to name a few. Meeting up with Team Rubicon is like watching opportunity blow up, in a good way. 

The international non-profit disaster response organization unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy disaster response teams, free of charge to communities affected by disasters across the country. By embracing decade-plus years of deployments and lessons learned, they have created a team of incident management personnel around an ingenious model of volunteerism. 

Team Rubicon currently maintains a roster of 16,000 volunteers able to deploy throughout the United States with teams in 10 regions.They stand ready to send volunteers to emergency situations: fire, flood, emergent home repair, and natural disasters. Team Rubicon response teams arrive with all the necessary equipment too. Military structure coupled with engrained flexibility enable the teams to fully integrate into an existing incident and perform disaster response functions in unparalleled style. With service projects, fellowships, field ops, training, and veteran resources, Team Rubicon is doing incredible work. Join us for an inspiring hour with a Team Rubicon Leader / Division 3 Administrator, Nicole Green. We'll chat about the mission and how these volunteers are giving back. Clearly, serving our nation doesn't end in taking off the uniform. Team Rubicon: http://www.teamrubiconusa.org/
