The Twin Cities Chapter of Team RWB has helped to make the #OldGloryRelay successful five years in a row, sometimes by traveling over hundreds of miles to captain days nowhere near Minnesota. This year, the relay split their neighborhood and they gladly took not one, nor two, but three days of the course, despite cold weather, cold winds, and colder snow storms! Huge shoutout to all of the Twin Cities #Eagles whose passion, dedication, and commitment lift Old Glory and has connected hundreds of communities across the U.S.A! #veterans#camaraderie#twincities
Soldiers of 34th Red Bull Infantry Division joined Chief Warrant Officer two Dan Zirbes, a member of Team Red, White & Blue, in a shadow run to mirror an event hosted by Team RWB before kicking-off their regular work day at Fort Hood, Texas. Back home, Team RBW’s Minnesota Chapter is hosting a two-day run as part of the #OldGloryRelay where a single flag is passed through more than 10,000 hands over the 4,300-mile journey from the east to west coast.
“I wanted to do the fun run to get solders active here and to let them know that our whole community is behind us back home,” said Zirbes. “With the shadow run, we also let our community know that we are an Army Family here and that we will take care of each other.”
The Red Bulls are preparing for a deployment to U.S. Central Command's area of responsibility in support of Task Force Spartan.

To truly celebrate America, one must experience this great country in its entirety, visit the historical landmarks that define us as a nation and, most importantly, connect with the veterans that have sacrificed to provide the freedoms we embrace within our communities. For 29 days, the #OldGloryRelay has been bringing #veterans , civilians, and communities together under one flag, with one common cause - supporting veterans. If you haven't signed up yet - join us today!

I was so honored to able to have, not only fellow @teamrwb Chapter Captain but an amazing friend @clebean hand off Old Glory to me as @teamrwbsouthbend ended Day 25 and @teamrwbchicago prepared for Day 26. #eaglefire 🦅🔥 #eagleup 🦅⬆️ #oldgloryrelay
Team RWB Milwaukee handing off Old Glory just after sunset last night at the capital building in Madison to finish day 28 of the relay. 100 miles of camaraderie, friendship, and some tired legs. A great day indeed. #oldgloryrelay#eaglefire#teamrwb
So proud to be a part of the Old Glory Relay!
Ran 3 miles and biked 9 carrying Old Glory and my Red Flower with Team RWB through Fort Atkinson to Cambridge. Then Old Glory made its way to the Madison Capital for the night before heading to San Diego.
I was so happy to see Sara with Weston on the run and still tears of gratitude for @kcayellowflower and @klniron for meeting me in Cambridge after my bike. ❤️🌺 62 Days - 4,300 Miles - 10,000 Americans 🇺🇸 Believe in your first step and trust the journey ⭐️
NIBCO associate, Scott Perry, had the honor of participating in the #OldGloryRelay . The relay honors veterans as one flag is moved 4,300 miles across the U.S. from Boston to San Diego. Scott’s team carried the flag from South Bend, Indiana to Gary, Indiana. Scott personally ran or biked 61.3 miles of the 66 mile leg. The flag is due to arrive in San Diego on November 11th, which is Veteran’s Day. Great job, Scott!

The #oldgloryrelay is a handoff of a single American flag traveling from east coast to west coast and uniting the @teamrwb chapters like @team_rwb_mke Think of it like Ragnar, traveling point to point. I finished my first leg at a super fast pace - nothing beats carrying this flag 🇺🇸 #runmomentummke#ambassadortakeover
Being the Captain of Day 26 of the #oldgloryrelay was such an honor. Being able to share in just a small part the amazing journey of 1 flag that is traveling 4300 miles and touching over 10,000 sets of hands was very humbling. It was great seeing all the members of @teamrwbchicago be able to carry the flag. #OGR is still going on so check out www.oldgloryrelay.org to see if it will pass near you. If so please join in for a leg and experience the magic! #eaglefire#veterans#eagleup

Day 25 of the #OldGloryRelay might have come and gone, but I’m still trying to process it all. I’m beyond blessed to be surrounded by such a strong team! Running with my best friend was one of the best parts of my day. Love you, @ketosis_mama_bear #bff#bestfriends
I’d been waiting since 2014 for #OGR to come through South Bend. I finally had my chance and despite and mishaps it was amazing! I helped carry our nation's flag as part of it's 4,300 mile trek across the country. #EagleUp @teamrwb
The relay will continue to cross the country until Veterans Day. It’s not too late to help. Please consider supporting my goal of helping #veterans like me become more engaged with their communities. 🇺🇸link in bio❤️

Even through intense rain, #Eagles from Day 25 of the #OldGloryRelay kept their #EagleFire alive and accomplished the mission! From South Bend to Gary, Indiana, lifting Old Glory kept everybody's spirits high!
Thinking @teamrwb #oldgloryrelay wouldn’t see the beach until San Diego? Wrong! @teamrwbsouthbend cruised on the beaches of Lake Michigan today- it was beautiful and definitely has put the wind in our sails to finish strong! #eaglefire#beachrunning#lakemichigan

What a week for #Eagles from Ohio to Indiana! After feeling the love from #SteelerNation , the #OldGloryRelay headed to Northeast Ohio for the first time in its five-year history. Every day with Old Glory is special, but one day this week was particularly poignant. Team RWB Executive Director @jjpint was able to bring OGR to his hometown of Litchfield, #PureMichigan . Hundreds of supporters, including Mayor O.R. Smith and Major General Gregory Vadnais, gathered at the Litchfield Veterans Memorial in celebration. See what else Old Glory has been up to in this week's Old Glory Relay recap on our website!
We are grateful to our #OldGloryRelay partner @laquintahotels for being a welcoming warm (and dry!) spot for our #Eagles after a massive down pour on Day 25! After some coffee and shared smiles, we were on our way again, the rain firing up our team and forging even stronger bonds as they move Old Glory one step closer to San Diego. #determination
