Team Rubicon Global's story In January 2010, a 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. Reports of the devastation compelled a group of military veterans to assemble a team and deploy to Port-au-Prince to support emerging relief efforts. In Haiti, it became clear that military veterans are uniquely prepared to provide immediate

emergency response aid, oftentimes in the early hours of a disaster before larger relief organizations can get on the ground. https://teamrubiconusa.org/engage/ TEAM RUBICON WAS BORN OUT OF THIS MISSION
