PTSD is the signature wound of Iraq and Afghanistan, and many veterans are suffering from it-diagnosed or otherwise. Team Rubicon feels that it can help veterans suffering from mental and emotional wounds by providing newfound purpose, community and sense of self. However, disaster response is, by nature, dangerous work, and it requires all participants to be mentally and emotionally capable.
