Bill (on the right) is a Surge Capacity Force volunteer from @TSA’s Philadelphia office helping with the hurricane recovery effort. He was leading a disaster survivor assistance crew after Hurricane Irma when he noticed an upside-down Marine flag. Bill knows that an upside-down American flag is a distress call, so he decided to stop and check on the resident. The resident was a Marine veteran of Merritt Island, Florida, who was grateful to see Bill and receive information on FEMA assistance. After the visit, they adjusted the flag together. #Irma #FloridaRecovery #Marines #Veterans
