Scheduled guest is Cal Verdin, of Team Rubicon.

Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with medical professionals to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.

Since its creation in January 2010, TR has saved and helped thousands of lives – in Haiti, Chile, Burma, Pakistan, Sudan, and here at home. TR reaches victims outside the scope of where traditional aid organizations venture; victims on the fringe. TR Engages Veterans. Hundreds of US military veterans, many returning home after fighting ten years of war, find a renewed sense of purpose for their skills and experiences through TR.

TR pioneered a new disaster response paradigm while redefining the meaning of veteran reintegration into society. On the streets of Port-Au-Prince, in the immediate aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, TR’s military veterans had an epiphany – natural disasters present the same problems troops face in Iraq and Afghanistan: unstable populations, limited resources, horrific sights, sounds and smells. The skills cultivated on those same battlefields – emergency medicine, risk assessment/management, teamwork and decisive leadership – invaluable in disaster zones.

GallantFew, Inc is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is committed to reducing veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.  Our priority is Project Darby - a focus on the US Army Ranger veteran.  Our nationwide network of Ranger veterans form mentors that help our newest veterans achieve a peaceful and successful transition.
