  • Guitars 4 Vets

    On April 10th, 2015 the first class of the Guitars for Vets program at U.S.VETS - Phoenix graduated with flying colors. The guitar students, who were all beginners, completed 12 weeks of guitar instruction and capped it off with a brief graduation ceremony - which included the presentation of brand new guitars to veterans. The graduates showed off their new skills by playing renditions of “A Boy Named Sue” and “Mercedes Benz”. Special thanks go out to Anthony Taddei and the G4V instructors for taking the time to teach our veterans how to play guitar.  For more information on G4V please check out their website at www.guitars4vets.org

  • Aspen Dental’s Mouth Mobile Visits U.S.VETS – Phoenix

    On April 8th Aspen Dental made the trek from Syracuse, New York to U.S.VETS – Phoenix in their Mouth Mobile to provide dental care to nearly 50 veterans.  Aspen Dental performed extractions, cleanings, fillings, and denture repair, as well provide free follow up care to veterans that required more than just one day of dental work. The next day, the Mouth Mobile was stationed outside the Arizona Capitol, where U.S.VETS – Phoenix Executive Director John Scott, and Attorney General Mark Brnovich made remarks about what a great opportunity Aspen Dental had provided our veterans. Many thanks to the crew at Aspen Dental, and the dentists that performed tirelessly both days. Click here to check out 3TV’s coverage of this special event.

  • Phoenix Stand Down

    On February 12-14, the annual Stand Down took place at the Coliseum located in Phoenix, Arizona.  Over 1800 veterans attended the event, which provided services and support ranging from legal assistance, housing, clothing, food, and veterinarian care, as well as massage, haircuts, and acupuncture. This year U.S.VETS was responsible for the housing component of the Stand Down, and was able to serve over 350 veterans. In a big change from last year's Stand Down, many of the veterans that needed help with housing were not homeless, marking a significant reduction in the homeless population.  Preliminary results from the Point in Time count conducted after the Stand Down reported only 18 Veterans were encountered on the streets of Phoenix.
