Review for VALORS VETERANS COMMUNITY AZ, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been attending Valors events since last year; one of the best parts.is meeting and sharing conversations with other veterans. After leaving active duty, I found it very difficult to connect and engage with civilians; mostly because we didn't speak in the same context.
Now when I meet with other Veterans at events, we have stories to share and we understand each other.

Review for VALORS VETERANS COMMUNITY AZ, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Valors on 8th and Ro provide a much needed service to our military and Veterans. I got out, after 4 years, back in the 80's and it was a difficult transition into civilian life for me as I didn't have much in common with the people I met, even other Veterans as they were involved with their own adjustments.
I have been participating with VON8th for about a year now and I enjoy attending the events. I feel at home. Ro has created an atmosphere where we all are equal, regardless of branch, MOS, rank, time in service, combat or no combat. We can just sit, share stories, and drink coffee from time to time.
We also participate in other community events, non-military, like the one where we hand out water to runners during a marathon or triathlon. Shows that us as a military community can still be a contribution to others.
Thanks to all organizations that donate to make this possible.
