When an earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, Mark Henderson (COL ’17) jumped into action to help survivors. As an enlisted member of the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army’s Global Response Force, Henderson and his fellow soldiers at Fort Brag, N.C., were deployed to aid civilians in the Caribbean country.
“I was part of the Global Response Force for anything that happened outside of Iraq and Afghanistan, so we were on alert 24/7,” Henderson said. “I had no real-world experience, and I quickly became immersed in this third- world country.”
