Veteran based volunteer organisation Team Rubicon is in Dubbo to help drought-stricken farmers and “get shit done”.
Spokeswoman Deborah Fenton said normal aid organisations provide money, but Team Rubicon provide physical labour and offer moral support to farmers during drought.
“We consist of veteran's, first responders and kick-arse civilians and we get shit done,” she said.
“We have a simple but serious goal to help people on their worst day.
“Military veterans have the unique skills and experiences necessary to respond safely, rapidly and effectively in harsh conditions with limited resources, with a passion for serving those in need.
“Team Rubicon Australia is a non-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of the public to support our mission.”

Dubbo RSL general manager Gus Lico said having Team Rubicon base themselves at the RSL provided the perfect symmetry.
“Our support for Team Rubicon is due to the fact that they get feet on the ground to help, we are proud to be associated with them,” he said.
“The fact they have veterans involved in their team adds further weight to what we stand for here at the RSL.”
