Running Together: Partners for the Military Community

2021-11-05

The battle buddy system teaches Soldiers how to work together as a team and how to look out for fellow Soldiers at all times — and that’s how we describe the partnership AAFMAA has built with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB).

Team RWB was founded with the mission to enrich the lives of Veterans’ physical and mental health. AAFMAA’s mission is to help ensure the financial security and independence of the members of the American Armed Forces community by providing insurance and other benefits that support their lives. Together, we are able to support the physical, mental, and financial health of our nation’s Veterans and their families.

But this partnership didn’t happen overnight. AAFMAA and Team RWB have been working together for years through sponsorships of the Army Ten-Miler in Washington, DC and the All American Marathon in Fort Bragg, NC.

Learn more about our individual histories and how our partnership formed:

"The partnership, and friendship, Mike and I have built over the last few years came together naturally because both of our organizations are passionate about enriching the lives of Veterans and those in the military," said AAFMAA President Mike Meese. "Just as Team RWB helps with physical fitness, AAFMAA helps with financial fitness, increasing our Members' financial independence and security.”

AAFMAA and Team RWB share a commitment to provide Veterans with the tools and support systems they need to take action to improve their overall health and lifestyle. Discover how you can benefit from our partnership, too. Join #EagleNation today by finding a chapter near you!
