They were given an overview of our programs as well as a short tour of our facility. As stated, they were very appreciative of the efforts of U.S.VETS-Phoenix to house veterans. Although impressed with all our veterans, they were particularly interested in services provided to our returning troops.

They took this opportunity to speak with some of the veterans residing at Grand Veterans Village, but more importantly, they took the time to personally thank veterans for their service.

Thank you all for coming out to U.S.VETS to show your support!
