Motto: “Never Give Up – Finish Strong!”

Why Did You Join Team RWB?

“I joined Team RWB to honor my father who passed away unexpectedly. He served in the Army. I decided that joining an organization that enriched the lives of America’s veterans would be a wonderful way to honor my father and give back to my community.”

What has Been Your Favorite Event or Experience with Team RWB?

“My favorite experience with Team RWB would definitely be attending Eagle Leader Academy in Detroit. What an amazing opportunity to come together with other Eagles across the Midwest Region! We shared our stories and explored our “why”. There was so much positivity and passion in our conference room that it was impossible not to be impacted in a profound way. Each of us left with new friendships, renewed vision, and loads of Eagle Fire!”

How do you serve your community?

“I serve my community through volunteering at the VA nursing home. I have established relationships with a large majority of the residents and staff. I also serve at our community food pantry every week. I’m also part of an outreach group that provides complimentary face painting throughout our community to spread seeds of kindness & smiles!”

What Inspires You?

“I am inspired by disciplined people that refuse to give up during difficult times. I am also inspired by people that find beauty in the ordinary.”

How Has Team RWB Impacted Your Life?

“Team RWB has impacted my life in a major way! At a time in my life when I desperately needed positivity and camaraderie…Team RWB was there. The other members of Team RWB have been a constant encouragement in my life. Through this organization, I have forged friendships that will last a lifetime. Our veterans have enriched my life, when my mission was to enrich theirs. Team RWB has also helped to keep me on track with my fitness goals. Joining Team RWB was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

What Would You Say to Someone Who is Thinking of Joining Team RWB?

“If I met someone that was thinking about joining Team RWB I would tell them to go for it! Live life to the fullest with no regrets!”

    Rachel is an amazing woman. I am so proud to have her in my life. She has the gift of a Warrior spirit that a Veteran understands. That deep rooted Faith that God embeds in the heart of few. She fights lifting up the hearts of many, she serves handing out the truth and she stands for everything this country’s foundation is built on. It is a Joyous day that my sister Rachel is recognized for the love of her Father.
