Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.

CHAPTER AND COMMUNITY PROGRAM

Our chapters and communities deliver consistent, local opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity. And it is so much more than running. They host regular fitness activities, social gatherings, and participate in local races and events together. Veterans can also develop their leadership skills by serving as a volunteer leader in their local chapter. These programs are at the core of Team RWB’s mission. Be sure to ask about them at your first meeting.

 

VETERAN AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

The Veteran Ambassador Program is a movement we are building, that encourages veterans to stay active and inspire others to do the same. The program welcomes new veterans to the team and ensures that they have the information and resources to stay connected with their local chapter, as well as the regional and national community.

The Abilene Grunts Association and Texas Veterans Chapter One host their Annual ‘TET Reunion’ in Abilene. The reunion is where Veterans and their families gather to share memories and stories of their years in the military.

Anyone who attends is encouraged to bring photo’s and memorabilia, no matter the era, service branch or conflict.

The 29th annual TET reunion will take place in the Taylor County Coliseum’s Display Building. There will be food, drinks, displays, memorabilia and a ‘USO’ type show.

On January 31, 1968, 70,000 North Vietnamese launched a fierce attack on more than 100 cities and towns in South Vietnam. The Vietcong called it the ‘Tet Offensive’, after their Vietnamese new year holiday called Tet.

What do County Veteran Service Officers do?

County Veteran Service Officers work with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other nationally chartered veterans organizations to assure that veterans and their dependents receive the entitlements they deserve.

What is the Military Veteran Peer Network?

With the peer-to-peer network, veterans go through a training course that teaches them how to facilitate groups of veterans. Once trained, they create local community peer groups. Because members of the group set the rules, no two peer groups are the same.
