Cultivating a fellowship of service
The Bridgestone Americas Veterans Organization (BRAVO) invites both our veteran and non-veteran teammates to join us in their mission to engage in the fellowship of service. Our goal is to connect with others from across the organization who have answered the call to serve, or have supported friends and family members who did.
BRAVO members gather as a community to support military causes and service organizations in Nashville and throughout middle Tennessee. Events have included building care packages to support service units deployed overseas, assisting with needs at local food banks and providing holiday gifts for A Soldier’s Child to support children of fallen military personnel.
To recruit and retain our community of engaged teammates, BRAVO has implemented the military tradition of Challenge Coins. These coins are small medallions bearing the unit insignia which is presented to a deserving member who went above and beyond the call of duty, to recognize volunteer service. Throughout the year BRAVO recognizes the special achievement of teammates whose behavior reflects positively on their company and their community by presenting them with a coin and welcoming them as fellow members.
