VFW and Team Red, White & Blue Join Forces For Veterans
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) proudly announced today it has joined forces with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) through a memorandum of understanding focused on increasing veterans’ access to a combined health and wellness network, while offering camaraderie and support from fellow service members, veterans and their families.
Founded more than a decade ago, Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans through health and wellness. The organization is comprised of nearly 200 chapters and communities, made up of over 217,000 members, called Eagles, the majority of whom are post-9/11 veterans.
“Camaraderie, commitment and service are core values to both our organizations, and together, we’ll be unstoppable in our quest to ensure a better quality of life for every American veteran,” said Hal Roesch, VFW national commander.
The new agreement enables closer collaboration between the organizations and encourages the sharing of resources needed to organize virtual and local opportunities aimed to connect veterans through physical and social activity.
“We’re excited to work together to enrich the lives of veterans of every generation and conflict,” said Mike Erwin, Team RWB Executive Director.
