Team Rubicon - Arrivals and Departures

Team Rubicon new addition, former Marine Scout Sniper and Purple Heart recipient, Clay Hunt. Two days ago Hunt awoke at 3 AM, checked Rubicon's blog, and three hours later hopped a plane to Santo Domingo and made his way into Haiti. Yesterday Hunt arrived at the General Hospital via taxi. "All I had was the gps pos for the mission and that they might be working at some hospital. Jake was the best man at my wedding. He's the brother I never had. Nothing could keep me from joining Team Rubicon. So I hired a taxi." says Hunt.

The second team will be enroute from the US soon, while the first team "picked up three nurses at noon yesterday" in Haiti.

Milwaukee Firefighter/EMTs Jeff Lang and Craig Parello have left to travel over land to Santo Domingo. Before they came to Haiti their superiors tried to talk them out of self-deploying, claiming "you are just going to be a liability".

Dr Eduardo Dolhun noted before leaving, "To paraphrase world renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead: never doubt that a small group of dedicated individuals can change the world... they always have".

Check in with Team Rubicon often. There's a lot going on.
