Providing Valuable Service and Assistance for Veteran Benefits and Quality of Life.
The Arizona Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America champions and honors veterans of the United States of America by taking action to improve the lives of U.S. military veterans and all who have experienced Spinal Cord Injury, Disease/Dysfunction, and Disability. We do this through advocacy for proper health care, improving public accessibility, communication, education, and the promotion of activities and sports. Together we are effective partners for life; ensuring each veteran receives full benefits earned through their service to our nation.
