Team Red White and Blue Study: Enriching the Lives of America's Veterans
The cornerstone of the TRWB mission is to enrich Veterans’ lives. We define enrichment as “creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall well being.” Our goal was to survey all TRWB members through an online survey on their self-reported perceptions of enrichment: connectivity, shared purpose, the civilian-military divide, well-being, and life satisfaction since joining the team. We also looked at enrichment based upon how active Veterans reported they were in TRWB events (“less active” or “active”). In the one week period our survey was open for response, 4,034 Veteran, active duty military, and civilians responded. Click Here for Infographic
