We salute our veterans and their loved ones
in thanks for their patriotism & service to our country.


We provide honor and recognition events to thank our veterans. We do this because they tell us the gratitude, the honor, the recognition for their service helps them heal. Isn’t that inspiring? A thank you can mean so much.

This is why we host Arizona’s largest parade event each year—the Phoenix Veteran’s Day Parade. Glowing with tributes, recognition and healing, this event is special to our veterans and our community. We’re not stopping there, we also hope to create other events to help us support this mission. And you can help!

“At Honoring America’s Veterans, it is vital for us to support our nation’s heroes through honor and recognition events. Our veterans tell us these events help them heal. We do so by honoring, celebrating, and recognizing them for their military service to our country.”

Paula Pedene
Executive Director, Honoring America’s Veterans

“When we came back from the Korean War, everyone turned their back on us. It was very difficult and very painful, and I carried that burden for over 60 years. And now, thanks to my experiences with the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade, I’m very proud to say that demon is gone. I am very grateful for the healing the Parade gave to me, and I will owe them a debt of gratitude for the rest of my life.”

Pete Haas
Purple Heart Recipient, Korean War Veteran

“I served In the Navy from 1994 until 2007. Personally, the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade helped me acknowledge what had happened to me during my service and to help me heal. The Parade helped me get past the hurt. The community gratitude the Parade provides heals us. Words cannot describe it.”

April Wise
US Navy Veteran

“As the people cheer and support you along the parade route, it gives you that confidence that what you did to serve mattered. Step by step along the route, it was a healing event for me.”

Pete Hegseth
Operation Iraqi Freedom Bronze Star Recipient, US Army Veteran



If you’d like your organization to have a float, balloon, vehicle, marching group or other form of participation in the parade, we have a very limited number of opportunities available. Ask about our Silver Star sponsorship. It includes a parade entry, an ad in the parade program, passes to parade VIP seating, seats at the parade victory party, a logo on parade volunteer t-shirts and our website, AND a verbal thank you by announcers during the parade.

It’s an incredible opportunity to showcase your employee veterans and patriotism!

Our heroes. Their stories.

If you or someone you love is a military veteran, please join us and share your gratitude on our virtual ‘Thank You Veterans’ wall. You can connect with us on Facebook and Instagram, tag us, and share what the saying “Thank You Veterans” means to you.
