Pete Reed was a former US Marine Corps rifleman who served for two deployments to Helmand Afghanistan before traveling cross country and living in the west as a ski instructor. He started his humanitarian career working with Team Rubicon after Hurricane Sandy hit his home state of New Jersey. In the summer of 2014, he assisted in the training of 33 Haitian EMTS. In late 2015 he left Jackson Hole WY to begin medical training operations in Northern Iraq.
Heartbreakingly, Pete was killed in 2023 when his rescue vehicle was targeted by a Russian anti-tank missile in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was dedicated to serving his country and community, and always considered the formation of GRM as his life’s “proudest achievement.”
