Props to Air Calvary for provinding helo lift for the Team

They took Clay, Griz and Jake to the DR while making a food drop to an orphanage way out in the boonies. They operate on donations and they sure helped us out. Look them up. They are a good outfit.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Griffin. I am seven years old. My dad is a Marine and tells me how important your job is. So does my mom. Thank you for helping these people. They need you. I am glad I have a house to live in. We are going to send money to help you. I hope you are safe.

    You are in my prayers.

  2. Well, hey Griffin. My name is Dee. My boyfriend is part of Team Rubicon and he is a retired Marine. I think your message is wonderful and will mean SO MUCH to the members of Team Rubicon. Thank you and your family for your help. And, you know something Griffin... I'm glad I have a house to live in too! Thank you for bringing that to my attention. Sometimes we forget just how lucky and blessed we truly are. Thank you, Griffin.

    Hey guys...Brock and Air Calvary just may be my ride!! Still workin the passport issue, but if all goes well, looking to be there Friday...Sat. at the very latest. Ok, must sleep...yet another long drive in the morning to Trenton to obtain official birth certificate. I do hope you all had a productive day and are able to get much needed rest. Nite!

  3. Thank for writting to Griffin, Dee. He thought that was the coolest thing ever! We're not sure where the best place to post his letter is? He really wants to let these guys know that we're all thinking of them and they are in our thoughts and prayers all the time.

  4. Hi Angelina, nice to meet you. On the main blog page, they now have "email Team Rubicon.". This will get to TL Gary Cagle and I assure you he will read it to the team. The letter brought me to tears. You have a very special young man there.
    If there is anything else I can do, I would be more than happy. Take Care and thank you so much for supporting Team Rubicon and the people of Haiti.

  5. Thanks Air Calvary for providing a lift for Clay, Jake and the good doctor...they really appreciated it and we will spread the word about your great organization. Blessings to you.
