Review for VALORS VETERANS COMMUNITY AZ, Tempe, AZ, USA
I have known Valors Veterans Community AZ for 2 years and everything I have witnessed has been to the benefit of the Veteran community. I have also ran into and spoken with the founding member RO at the Phoenix VA medical center, as he was making his rounds to speak with Veterans and employees to get their feedback as to how Valors can assist them.
I have also attended multiple Veteran town halls and Valors is always a staple at these town halls it seems. I see their volunteers speaking with the community and providing resources that can enrich their lives.
Many times, I see Valors also hosting events that I have personally volunteered at or benefited from. In one instance, Valors was able to connect Veterans to a Cardinals games in where the group built a friendship, while enjoying the whooping the Cardinals were dishing out. For some Veterans, events like the one described are the only opportunities we have to connect with another person.
I did not mention the bicycle rides and donations. Ro truly understands the importance of getting outside and building a community/ friendship. RO has spoken to me personally on how coming together for social events is therapeutic for many Veterans suffering from emotional and mental trauma. Nothing heals the soul like another good soul. I would recommend this non-profit organization to our brothers and sisters in arms! Thank you RO for what you do for us Veterans! AATW!
