Southern AZ Mil/Vet Community Network

Key stakeholders from the public and private sector are working collaboratively to create a Southern Arizona Military/Veteran Community Network (the Network). The Arizona Coalition for Military Families has been engaged to develop and implement the Community Network, building upon Arizona’s nationally-recognized statewide model.

The Community Network was officially launched at a Summit at the University of Arizona in Tucson in December 2014.
