We are happy to have our CERT team safely back home. Words can not express how grateful we are for their voluntary will to help others. A natural disaster can happen to anyone. Seeing something like this makes you thankful for what you have, and happy that you can help those who need it. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others? You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you. We are humbled by our experience responding to the Volcáno de Fuego eruption that resulted in over 300 missing, 200 confirmed deaths, and thousands displaced and left homeless. 2 Firefighters, 1 CONRED Commander and 3 Police Officers were also lost in this tragedy. We are grateful to the Guatemala CONRED officials, Policia Nacionales, Bomberos Voluntarios and TOPOS Azteca Mexico for the warm welcome they received us with. This is a crisis! These pictures display the minimal of what was encountered and witnessed in Ground Zero. Guatemala still needs a lot of help. We are collecting donations for the surviving families of the 2 Firefighters, 3 Law Enforcement Officers and the CONRED Commander that lost their lives trying to save others. If you would like to help, please download our free App from the Apple or Android store “United Badges of Honor” to make your donation. Our world needs love!! #volcanodefuego #heroes4heroes #guatemala #differentbadgessamefamily #unitedbadgesofhonor #humanitarianaid #helpingpeople

It’s a sad day in Guatemala. 3 days ago, our brothers Juan Bajxac and Antonio Castillo, Bomberos of Guatemala, were working ground zero in the aftermath of the eruption from Volcáno de Fuego searching for missing people when they got caught in a mudslide caused by the tropical storms. After 2 long days of walking miles of ground zero searching for them and their ambulance, with only finding parts of the vehicle and pieces of their uniform, today we pay respect and say our last good-byes to our brothers in red. Our UBOH CERT (Combined Emergency Response Team) will be in Rodeo, the other side of the disaster, to assist Guatemala CONRED official’s and our fellow USAR Bomberos of Guatemala brothers in hope of recovering the missing. We are collecting donations for Guatemala through our app. You may download it for free from the Apple or Android store (United Badges of Honor). Please pray for Guatemala 🙏🏻 #unitedbadgesofhonor #differentbadgessamefamily #heroes4heroes #volcanodefuego #cam#camaraderie #togetherservingandprotecting #helpingothersinneed #camaraderie #brotHERhood 🚒🚓

Guatemala lost 2 law enforcement officers and 3 firefighters 2 days ago, due to the tragic mudslides created from the tropical rain storms and the Volcano de Fuego’s activity since Sunday June 3rd. Our Team was able to assist the CONRED officials today in the Alotenango zone searching for the missing ambulance and police vehicle. Our team came across vehicle parts from the missing CONRED government official truck, human vertebrae’s, human bones, kids toys, clothes, house roof tops and much more which was very impactful, leaving the team to keep working endlessly for the search of the unknown. Guatemala needs our help.

Find balance in your life. Work hard but don’t let work take over your life, you will loose yourself. Love, but love for the right reasons. Life is too short for anything mediocre. Know who you are and know that you are worthy of reaching your dreams and that its never too late to start creating that life you have always dreamed of. Do not compare yourself to others, that’s just deadly. No two souls are the same. You are your own person, you are beautiful and unique. Put your trust in the universe. Some things are just meant to happen, and some are not. Let go of whatever is stealing your happiness, it’s hard but it’s worth it. Embrace change. Embrace life. Everything happens for a reason, sometimes you just need to breathe, trust and let go. #blessed #unitedbadgesofhonor #heroes4heroes #alwayshungry #makingalegacyformyfamily #followingmydreams #listeningtomyheart #humblewarrior #critiquesdontmatter #guatemalamission #helpingtheworld #itsjustthewayiam
