Making Every Day My “Go Day”

Learn how Army veteran Zackery McAvoy rediscovered his direction, pride, and purpose through Team Rubicon.

Five years ago I had no direction. I had willingness but no purpose. I joined the United States Army and found that direction, pride, and purpose were part of waking up. I lost it again when I was discharged from active duty one year ago, and all of that was buried deep inside with no key.


Team Rubicon was the key. I went into my first operation in April feeling lost. I am now excelling as the Logistic Section Chief for a Type 4 flood operation in Missouri. I have made connections with the community and came away with a smile as I see the effect we are having on the lives of those we are serving.
