    Jake Wood is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. When he returned home he felt at loose ends and without purpose. He states : But when our sons and daughters take off their uniforms for the last time, they often begin a long descent into obscurity. A higher calling lives on inside of them that no longer has a mission to pursue, and as they struggle to reintegrate, it’s more comfortable for the public to look away than to take responsibility. When the earthquake hits Haiti in 2010, he feels Jake Wood is a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. When he returned home he felt at loose ends and without purpose. He states : But when our sons and daughters take off their uniforms for the last time, they often begin a long descent into obscurity. A higher calling lives on inside of them that no longer has a mission to pursue, and as they struggle to reintegrate, it’s more comfortable for the public to look away than to take responsibility. When the earthquake hits Haiti in 2010, he feels a calling and in the spur of the moment talks some other veterans into crossing the Rubicon and going to Haiti with him to see what difference they could make. And thus Team Rubicon was born. Once a Warrior: How One Veteran Found a New Mission Closer to Home is the story of how Team Rubicon was formed and how it works to aid in disasters both at home and abroad and how it works to give purpose to veterans, which they lose when they return from overseas fighting. It is an inspiring story and I was greatly invested in reading it.

    Great read! I am a part of Team Rubicon and I loved the book. Jake has been able to put into words what so many veterans feel in addition to creating a place for veterans and first responders to thrive. I will definitely pick this up again!

    Outstanding and inspirational book! We don’t do enough for our veterans in this country. Jake Wood and Team Rubicon not only help veterans in concrete ways but bring their expertise to help others during a crisis. This book makes you think about the Forever Wars and the impact on young men and women who served. I highly recommend it.
