We need a second team to move go to Haiti. We need:
ER doctor types plus pediatric skills EMT's. Security element still necessary need former military with combat experience and trauma skills, a school teacher would be a good addition as we transition. Gary Cagle is the Team leader and will make personnel decisions.

We can cover plane tickets if necessary and make arraignments from Dominican if you can't get to PaP.
