Tim Ballard, founder of Operation Underground Railroad brought along Guesno Mardy who just so happens to be the inspiration for the organization. Guesno's son was kidnapped in Haiti and has yet to be found. Operation Underground Railroad has gathered the world's experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.'s Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.
