About Victor Rivera

     Victor is a retired Air Force Veteran with a huge heart and giving spirit;  who has also been diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma and suffers from PTSD and depression. Vic started making these key chains as a form of therapy, and began to give these little "battle buddies" out to his peers within the wounded warrior community.  He soon realized that they put a smile on the faces of everyone who received one.

     " My Battle Buddy Keychains are just a small thing that I do to cheer up others, but doing so also helps me.    If I can help someone forget about their troubles, even for a short time, it makes me happy."


     If you ever attend an Air Force wounded warrior event, you can bet that these key chains will be displayed proudly on most backpacks and luggage.

    Since the demand for these battle buddies continues to grow, Victor has made them available to order through this website. 

Why a "Battle Buddy"?

     A military "Battle Buddy" is someone who has your back and you can count on. Everyone should have someone they can count on!   

     Get one for yourself and don't forget one for YOUR Battle Buddy.    


     The Battle Buddy Keychains are handcrafted by me, Victor Rivera, an Air Force Retiree.
