Ask This Old House: Team Rubicon
Tom Silva joins Team Rubicon, an organization made up of military veterans, for emergency assistance in the wake of Hurricane Harvey
Tom Silva knows how much people appreciate the house calls that he and the crew make during the course of Ask TOH, so he really appreciated his recent visit with another group that helps people in dire need. Called Team Rubicon, the organization is made up of military veterans who assist during emergency situations.
Tom joined the group in Lumberton, Texas, where they were helping families whose homes had been flooded during Hurricane Harvey. Team Rubicon has committed to rebuilding 100 homes for those affected by the hurricane, and the work helps not only the hurricane victims but the veterans, too, as a way to reintegrate them into civilian life.
“They will volunteer wherever they are needed, and they do whatever it takes,” says Tom. With a motto of “Disasters are our business. Veterans are our passion,” you know Team Rubicon is going to get things done.
