The German Armed Forces Reservists Association
The Reservistenkameradschaft Kassel (reservists-comradery Kassel, RK Kassel) is a local chapter of the German Armed Forces Reservists Association (VdRBw).
The VdRBw is the institution in charge of promoting and supporting voluntary engagement of reservists in close cooperation with the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr).
The VdRBw looks after Officers, NCOs and enlisted personnel after their active duty time as well as those, who never served in the Armed Forces, but are involved with or interested in the Bundeswehr.
The role of the VdRBw is to be a “bridge builder“ between the Armed Forces and the German society.
Therefore, the VdRBw receives support from the German MOD (ca. 13.8 mio. Euro).
