FLORENCE – The Pinal County Board of Supervisors has created a new website page to provide veterans of the US armed services a convenient place to go for links to sites and information that may be helpful. The page can be found using this shortened web link: http://goo.gl/nfErj
. You can also find the Veterans’ Resources section on the left navigation ladder on www.pinalcountyaz.gov
“My colleagues and I have heard about the challenges veterans face – not only in their daily lives, but when they reenter the workforce or seek help with medical or educational services,” said Board of Supervisors’ Chairman Pete Rios. “We wanted to use a portion of our website to help ease the way for our veterans and their families.”
“Each member of the Board of Supervisors is appreciative of the service and sacrifice made by military service members who serve at home or abroad,” said David Snider. “With the closing down of operations in the middle east, we will see an increasing number of veterans returning to our communities and workplaces. This site is dedicated to helping in that transition.” “Whether it is information about health care, education, employment or financial resources, veterans young and old will find useful information on the website,” said Supervisor Bryan Martyn, who is a veteran having served in Iraq, Afghanistan and other global hot spots.
The website also features links to discounted tickets, as well as discounts on products and services. The county’s criterion for listing such discounts is that the discounts are widely available in Arizona and elsewhere.
While Pinal County does not administer any specific programs aimed at veterans, the resources and links on this page will help veterans connect up with the services or opportunities that interest them. This site is not intended to be a comprehensive source of information but a helpful place to start looking for information.
