Veterans Outreach to Physical Fitness
Team Red, White & Blue is rooted in the belief that the best way to support veterans is by spending time with them, listening to them, and supporting them in personal and meaningful ways.
Ultimately, the aim of Team RWB's community-building program is to bring veterans together with civilian citizens in a way that enables them to establish authentic friendships.
Veteran Ambassador Program
Whether you're an active duty service member or an honorably discharged veteran, Team RWB needs your help to spread the word about our mission. We believe that consistent exercise is the most under-prescribed response to counter the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
I joined the military in February, 1995 and served for 13 years as a communications specialist. Five years ago, I decided to re-class to Psychological Operations within the Special Operations, which was the best decision for my military career, challenging and stimulating my limits of my intellect as well as, enhancing my expertise in field.
My name is Ryan McKennedy and I am from Springfield Illinois. I joined the National Guard in 2007 and deployed to Afghanistan in 2009. I have been going to Southern Illinois University since 2010 and am currently working on my Masters in Social Work.

TRWB found me in the hospital room of SFC Mark Holbert and his wife, Tiffany in February, 2011. A non-profit that I co-founded has the honor of awarding specially modified vans to our most severely injured service men and women.
When I left the active duty, I was lost, confused, and angry. I felt lost, because after 4.5 years, 2 tours in Iraq and stop loss for 6 months, I was left with the feeling of worthlessness. Confused, because coming back home to Orlando reminded me of Frodo and Sam coming back to the Shire.
