What is TR Nation?

TR Nation [Tee-arr ney-shun] n. – The prodigious, good-looking, and service-minded team of volunteers and supporters fueling the relief machine that is Team Rubicon (TR).


Some members of TR Nation are inked and bearded. Some, white-collared and tech-savvy. Several are svelte and nimble, while others have never owned a garment without an “XL” on the tag. Most are foul-mouthed, good-humored, and typically advocate for wearing silkies/ranger panties in the workplace.

One hundred percent of TR Nation cares about service. They want to help communities affected by disasters and they care about giving veterans another chance to serve after taking off the uniform. TR Nation is also über generous with their donations – be it time, smarts, sweat, or dollars.

Whether you deployed on a relief operation with TR, dropped some coin to support the mission, or enthusiastically shared TR’s story with your third cousin’s parole officer, you should identify as a proud member of TR Nation.

The other day, I saw this guy flex his bicep right under a nasty lookin’ funnel cloud and it instantly turned into a rainbow. He must’ve been a member of TR Nation.
