We recognize your service

Our veterans are important to this country; serving and sacrificing in order for us to retain the rights, comforts, and freedoms that make the United States a great country in which to live.
All across the states, veterans are recognized on a local and national level as you will see in this National PVA video.



We want to know and recognize our Arizona veterans. At AZPVA, everyday is Veterans Day. We feel that everybody should be aware of the commitment and dedication that our Arizona servicemen and women have given to this country.
