Team Rubicon, thanks are not enough. Please do not underestimate the difference you made to our town. You were the glue, the constant, the security blanket that filled the gap left behind when all the flashing lights left town. You and your families are now part of the Tathra family and will be welcome in our town whenever you need some time out. It was great to meet many of you, and I hope I get the chance to put on the Grey one day.
When I came home from Afghanistan, I felt directionless and struggled to find a new purpose. With Team Rubicon I was able to work with an amazing group of people and experience the strength of being part of a dedicated, hardworking team again. We were connected by our past experiences, but we were now connected by a shared of goal of wanting to help people however we could and put a bit of hope and goodness back into the world.
After serving 20 years in the Army I was medically retired and then found myself very lost and very unwell. I needed to have purpose and direction. I found some of these thing in various endeavors, but it was in a grey shirt I found almost everything I was looking for. After cleaning up a resident’s yard and chatting she asked me where I came from. I said Brisbane, and she said “Wow, you have come a long way." Of course, she was talking about distance, but I was thinking how far I have come from those dark days after leaving the military.
