US veterans fill their own void delivering aid to Philippines
Members of Team Rubicon, a disaster relief organization staffed by US veterans, are using their military skills in the Philippines -- and finding the camaraderie they miss in the process.
This is Veterans Day and we’d like to thank everyone in uniform (past and present) for defending our country and the Founder’s ideals. Now, if we could just get our elected officials to get off their butts and do the same thing.

Enjoy your day, Veterans!

I'm a former Army Ranger, out for a few months now. The thing I miss the most about the military, is feeling like I'm making a difference. This desire to keep the fight going is what led me to start a business with my brother. Our company is an athletic/leisure apparel company called Chivalry Contego LLC. Contego is Latin for "to clothe" and "to protect". We aim to do this with not only our products, but with donations we will make to various charities on every sale as well.
