This operation represents the growing presence of TR in Idaho and their first ever Idaho based operation. More veterans are taking steps to find purpose after the military and actively serve their communities.
In order to make this happen, the Rubicon City Coordinator Sandra Rollings (Army combat medic with two Iraq deployments), did a damage assessment and determined it would beneficial to the Payette Community for Region X (Team Rubicon uses the same regions as FEMA for organization) to deploy. Then, just like she did in the military, she pulled together all the assets needed for the mission, utilized the right people, and went to work.
The Operation Payette Forward volunteers removed snow off of roofs and cleared the way for the upcoming melt over a four day period. Look out for more TR activity in Idaho!
