Many foundations and their causes can be inspirational. Sometimes inspirational people move on from one phase of their lives onto another inspirational phase. This is the case for many veterans. Serving the country in any military branch deserves gratitude, admiration, respect, and so much more.
Wounded Warrior Project, National Veterans Foundation, Veterans Support Foundation, and many other organizations assist veterans with their life outside of the military following their service. Part of the focus of some foundations or programs is veteran integration into their lives post-military service. This is part of the focus of Team Rubicon.
Team Rubicon is a disaster relief non-government organization. Marines William McNulty and Jacob Wood founded the group to use the skills and experience of military veterans and first responders to be emergency responders. They formed in January 2010. They responded to the Haiti earthquake and have since responded to 120 disasters both in the United States and internationally. Team Rubicon has a 35,000 veteran membership and can be in a disaster zone in less than 24 hours. Their slogan is ‘Disasters are our business. Veterans are our Passion.’ Veterans continue to aid others and use their skills in a way that allows them to integrate themselves into civilian life.
Support all service members and veterans. Be inspired! Have a bright day!
