      @Dalis that is a global logo for Team Rubicon. I am a member of Team Rubicon Australia. It is a cross turned on it's side with a river running through it. As a global Non government organisation we work in disaster response/relief/recovery. We are all not-for-profits and consist mainly of volunteers. Disasters are business, Veterans are our passion. TRA has been around since 2017. We unite the skills and experiences of Australian Defence Force veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams around the globe. Our mission is to stand up the pre-eminent disaster response organisation in the Pacific Rim and, in doing so, change the narrative around the Australian Veteran.

      WHERE IT ALL STARTED
      January 10, 2010. A 7.8 magnitude earthquake shakes Port-au-Prince.

      In moments, hundreds of thousands were injured, infrastructure and buildings were destroyed, countless were made homeless.
      In the days following, many traditional aid organizations were slow to establish relief efforts, citing dangerous and unstable working conditions. Troubled by the scenes in Port-au-Prince and the lack of proper aid, two Marines, Jake Wood and William McNulty, decided to act. Gathering supplies and volunteers, the small group of veterans, first responders, and medical professionals deployed to Haiti in the days following the earthquake.


      When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon at the head of his legions and marched on Rome, it marked a point of no return. The phrase “crossing the Rubicon” has since survived in reference to any group committing itself to a risky course of action.
      Crossing over the Artibonite River, the natural border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the small team of eight volunteers called themselves “Team Rubicon” in reference to the Rubicon River in Rome – by crossing their Rubicon, the team acknowledged they were irrevocably committed to their task of helping those in need.

      SERVICE above self is the driving force behind all of Team Rubicon’s operational activity. Our actions are characterized by the constant pursuit to prevent or alleviate human suffering and restore human dignity – we help people on their worst day.
